Implant supported Teeth
Those who have lost all of their teeth — or are soon to have their last, failing teeth removed — have several options for tooth replacement. One of the most advanced and reliable techniques is to permanently attach lifelike prosthetic (new replacement) teeth to dental implants that are anchored in the jawbone.
Implant-supported teeth look and function just like real teeth, and are maintained with the same oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing.
Benifits of implant supported teeth:-
- Implant-supported teeth allow normal function of the whole stomatognathic system (“stomato” – mouth; “gnathic” – jaws) including the nerves, muscles and jaw joints.
- Dental implants stabilize and stimulate the bone around them, maintaining bone dimension and strength. This is something removable dentures can’t do. In fact, wearing dentures actually accelerates bone loss. So implant supported dentures are better then normal dentures.
- They look aesthetically more natural.
