Implant Anchored Dentures
Portland, OR


group of smiling older woman with implant anchored dentures from Joe Radakovich in Portland, ORSeveral issues can lead to loss of teeth. While gum disease is one of the most common causes of tooth loss, facial trauma and tooth decay due to cavities remain some of the other causes of tooth loss. Regardless of what causes tooth loss, many problems follow. When you experience tooth loss, simple tasks, including eating and speaking, can become more difficult. Moreover, your confidence plummets because of a strikingly different smile. But that’s not it. Loss of teeth can affect your entire oral cavity, the alignment of other teeth, and alters your bite. And the implications are more serious in case of loss of several teeth in your dental arch.
One of the alternatives to restore your missing teeth is implant anchored dentures.

What are Implant Anchored Dentures?


Implant anchored dentures are an alternative to dental implants and traditional dentures. Unlike traditional dentures that rely on your gums, implant anchored dentures rely on the metal posts for support. Your dental practitioner will implant metal posts in your jawbone and give enough time for your jawbone to fuse with the posts. Once the metal posts stabilize in your jaw, your replacement teeth get a secure and sturdy root that supports your denture. Implant anchored dentures offer a long-term solution to missing teeth with several benefits, including improved quality of life and prevention of bone atrophy.

Types of Implant Anchored Dentures


There are several different types of implant anchored dentures which include:
•  Fixed or screw-retained implant anchored dentures,
•  Bar retained implant anchored dentures.

Both these types of implant anchored dentures rely on six to eight posts to support the entire dental arch.

Why Implant Anchored Dentures?


There are several reasons why implant anchored dentures make one of the best choices for tooth restoration, especially when you have several missing teeth in your dental arch. Some of the advantages of implant anchored dentures include the following.
•  Implant anchored dentures feel completely natural.
•  Implant anchored dentures are more comfortable as your teeth are supported by the posts and not your gums.
•  The crown looks and feels exactly like your natural teeth.
•  Since the teeth are securely in place, there is no risk of your denture slipping, moving, or falling out as you eat or speak.
•  The implant posts prevent bone loss as they support your jawbone similar to the roots of your natural teeth.

If you have experienced the loss of teeth and are considering restoration alternatives, know that implant anchored dentures make a great choice, especially if you have experienced multiple loss of teeth in your entire dental arch.
