Implant-Supported Dentures in Kanata ON – Dentist in Kanata
Compared to traditional removable dentures, implant-supported dentures are second only to natural teeth. They offer a better fit, support, and stability – characteristics that can significantly improve a person’s appearance, enhance the quality of speech, improve eating habits and digestion, and can generally make your life easier and more enjoyable.
Implant-Supported Dentures in Kanata
At Kanata Lakes Dental Centre, you can upgrade your traditional removable dentures, even if you are a long-time denture wearer. If you are a first-time denture wearer, you can consider and choose implant-supported dentures from the very beginning.
These dentures are attached to and supported by four or more implants that are surgically placed into each arch (jaw bone). The implants, just like natural teeth, stimulate the growth of the jaw bone and prevent its resorption (shrinking), which commonly happens after tooth extraction. Implant dentures can be fixed (only removed by the dentist) or removable (by the patient for sleeping or cleaning).
If you already are a denture wearer or are about to become one, come talk to one of our Kanata dentists who can explain your options and suggest a solution that would work best for you. Implant-supported dentures can be ideal for many denture wearers, but there are cases where they may not represent the best solution for you. Feel free to call us for a consultation.
Dentures for More Convenience
Implant-supported dentures have several important advantages that deserve mentioning and considering. First, they are permanently attached and therefore very stable. Second, they are more comfortable because they are not sitting or sliding over the gums. Third, being fixed and stable, they have better biting and chewing functionality. And finally, the implants continuously stimulate the jaw bone, preventing its recession and fragility. If these factors sound important to you and you would like to know if you could be a candidate for implant-supported dentures, come see us. Book an appointment today!
