If you’ve lost many or all of your teeth, you may be looking for the best solution to restore your smile and eat the foods you love. Maybe you’ve been dealing with traditional dentures for years, and you’re tired of having to constantly reapply denture adhesive and deal with an uncomfortable fit. Then perhaps now is the time to look into implant-supported dentures near you. The Beverly Dental Group is proud to offer our patients implant-supported dentures as a tooth restoration option.
If you haven’t yet heard of implant-supported dentures in Beverly, MA, that’s ok. Implant-supported dentures are a compromise between traditional dentures and dental implants. Many folks don’t want the discomfort and hassle of traditional dentures but are not sure if a full mouth of implanted teeth is the right solution.
Implant-supported dentures offer a more effective permanent solution to tooth loss. Traditional dentures rest on the gums in the mouth, and most people rely on denture adhesive to keep them from falling out. Implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, don’t rest on the gum but are attached to and supported by an implanted tooth. In most cases, a person can get dentures supported by implants with as few as two implanted teeth, one on each side of the denture for top or bottom dentures.
Once the implants are installed, the specialized denture plate is attached to them, creating a permanent set of teeth far stronger and more durable than standard dentures. The best part is, just like dental implants, these dentures should never crack or wear down because they are meant to be with you for life.
No more going in for adjustments periodically or buying a new set of dentures every few years. Implant-supported dentures could be the last you ever need to buy.
