Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures in Chattanooga are the top solution to replace many missing teeth. 

Missing teeth can impact your everyday life, including how you speak and eat. They may also affect your confidence and how much you enjoy your smile. The more teeth you are missing, the greater the negative impact can be.

Implant-supported dentures are a modern solution to replace missing teeth. With proper care, they can last a lifetime and completely restore your smile. Visit our dental office in Chattanooga for durable implant-supported dentures today.

Dental Implants vs Dentures

Dental implants are versatile treatment tools as they can replace either one or multiple missing teeth. A patient can have multiple implants to support the replacement teeth that are needed.

Traditional dentures are removable, securing to your gums with a temporary dental glue. On the other hand, implant-supported dentures are secured directly to your jawbone via dental implants.

They’re most commonly used on the lower jaw because slippery dentures pose a greater problem here. However, they can be used on the upper and/or lower jaw.

The main benefit of implant-supported dentures is that they secure into place on the implants. You never have to deal with denture glue or sliding dentures.

You can also choose between removable implant-supported dentures (that you can remove to clean and store at night) or fixed-implant dentures that operate much like natural teeth.

Types of Implant-Supported Dentures in Chattanooga

Implant-supported dentures come in two options: ball-retained or bar-retained. Each type requires at least two dental implants, and both are viable options to restore your smile.

Here’s more information about them each:

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures in Chattanooga

Many patients who initially opted for removable dentures have switched to dental implants with positive results. Patients claim an improvement in quality of life! Implants feel and respond like natural teeth, allowing for more natural eating and eliminating embarrassing moments when dentures may have slipped or clicked. Additionally, dental implants help to preserve your aesthetic appearance as they actively work to prevent bone loss.
