Are you interested in implant-supported dentures? I can certainly understand why. They are such a wonderful solution, almost like having your own teeth.
I wrote an e-book entitled: A Patient's Guide to Dental Implants, which outlines how dental implant-supported dentures can change your life. Below is an excerpt.
Thanks to the many advances in dental implant technology over the last 40 years, implanted-supported dentures and Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day have become the preferred choices for the frustrated denture wearer or those not happy transitioning from real teeth to dentures.
Implants are comfortable and look and act like natural teeth. Implants provide the greatest stability, helping to preserve that precious bone under the gums while maintaining the natural look of your face and lips. They are as close as we’ll ever get to “real teeth” in dentistry, and patients often say they wish they had transitioned to dental implants sooner.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or prosthesis (denture). Dental implants are an option for people who have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
The dental implant itself is made of titanium - a very strong, corrosion resistant, natural element that is perfectly biocompatible with bone. It therefore makes an ideal root replacement (anchor) for your missing tooth. The implant is placed within the upper and/or lower jaw to act as a direct or indirect anchor for your replacement teeth.
Your new titanium root not only prevents the receding of your jaw, but actually reverses it by stimulating new bone growth in your jaw. Implants help keep the natural look of your face and lips, avoiding the ‘sunken-in’ denture look many people experience as their jaw deteriorates with age.

What are Implant-Supported Dentures?
A conventional denture rests on your gums - which often causes slippage or can cause pain when biting on hard foods.
An implant-supported denture on the other hand, is held firm by being attached to 2-4 titanium implants that are placed in your gums, providing you with the greatest stability possible while allowing you to eat almost any foods you love. And because implant-supported dentures are secured, they don’t shift or slip and alleviate most of the common and painful complaints caused by conventional dentures.
How do you know you are a candidate?
- If you are currently wearing dentures, are they feeling less than satisfactory? Uncomfortable, loose, or painful, stained or ugly?
- If you aren’t wearing a denture, but your teeth need replacing, do you want to skip dentures all together, and find a more permanent solution?
If either of these situations pertains to you, it might be time to take a look at implant-supported dentures or Permanent-Teeth-in-a-Day as a solution.
