If you use traditional dentures, you’re likely all too familiar with the issues wearers can face. Regular dentures can slip, irritate your mouth, and make eating and talking more difficult. In addition, there’s nothing anchoring these dentures into the jawbone, making you more susceptible to bone deterioration.
That’s where implant dentures come in. With both full sets and partial implant dentures available, this newer technology allows you to enjoy all your favorite foods again and speak with confidence. Since they are supported by implants, these dentures act much more like your natural teeth, and as a result, have a cosmetic advantage as well as one of health and function.
How Long Do Implant-Supported Dentures Last?
The lifespan of implant-supported dentures can vary depending on several factors, including the patient’s oral hygiene habits, the quality of the implant and restoration, and the frequency of dental check-ups.
Generally, implant-supported dentures are designed to last for many years, with some patients reporting them lasting for more than a decade or two. However, it’s important to note that the individual components of the denture, such as the implant fixtures and the denture prosthesis (tooth), may have different lifespans.
The implant fixtures, which are surgically placed into the jawbone, are designed to be a permanent solution and can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. The denture prosthesis, on the other hand, may need to be replaced or adjusted over time due to normal wear and tear.
Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are important to maintain the health of the implant dentures and ensure that any issues are addressed before they become more serious. Our dentist will be able to provide you with specific recommendations for caring for your implant-supported dentures and help you determine if it’s time for any adjustments or replacements.
Do Implant-Supported Dentures Come Out?
Implant-supported dentures are designed to stay securely in place and not come out during normal use. The dentures are attached to dental implants, which are surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a stable base for the denture. This allows for greater stability and improved function compared to traditional removable dentures, which can slip or move around during eating or speaking.
However, implant-supported dentures can be removed for cleaning and maintenance by a dental professional. Additionally, in some cases, the denture may need to be removed for adjustments or repairs. Overall, implant-supported dentures are a reliable and effective option for restoring missing teeth and improving oral function.
