IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES

Are you looking for a cheap and reliable way to improve your smile? Consider implant supported dentures. The support of the implant allows the dental fixture to be shaped into a horseshoe. This significantly reduces the weight of the denture. This type of denture allows the patient to incorporate fruits, vegetables and other foods that they would have to avoid when using traditional dentures. The dentures are removable, making them very convenient and easy to use.

The Procedure of Placing an Implant Supported Denture

The procedure involves a series of appointments. In the first appointment, the patient and the dentist discuss the treatment plan and its involvement. This is for the patient to decide whether they will proceed with the treatment. The dentist will answer the questions and concerns of the patient. The dentist ascertains if the patient is qualified for the treatment.

The procedure starts with implant surgery, placed on the jaw bone. After the implant surgery, the existing denture becomes the interim denture. After four months, the denture is replaced with a new one.

Advantages of Implant Supported Dentures

Implant supported dentures have numerous benefits, including:

  • They are affordable compared to other forms of treatment
  • They are removable and very convenient to use
  • They are similar to natural teeth and feel, look, and function like regular teeth
  • Durable and last longer than other treatments
  • They improve a patient’s bite and smile
  • They prevent gum damage and loss of jawbone tissue
  •  They are cleaned the same way natural teeth are cleaned

Disadvantages of Implant Supported dentures

  • The treatment takes a more extended period compared to other treatments
  • Insurance plans may not cover the treatment
  • The cost of implant supported dentures are relatively low but is more than traditional dentures
  • The procedure cannot be performed on patients who don’t have enough jawbones

The Cost of Implant Supported Dentures

The costs will vary depending on several variables like insurance. Some insurance plans will cover some of the costs, while others will not. Other factors include:

  • Type and quality of implants used
  • The number of implants used
  • The dentist and location where the procedure is performed
  • Other procedures are performed before the implant process.

A complete set of dentures cost about $1500 to $4000. Other costs may include additional dental procedures and preparatory procedures.
