While traditional removable dentures have been around for centuries, they have limitations and can have long term negative effects on a patient’s oral health. Since traditional dentures rest on the gums, a patient’s bite force is limited, and it risks denture slippage. Traditional denture wearers usually lose the capability to chew tough, sticky foods. Bone is then lost through the body’s natural process of resorption, affecting a patient’s ability to chew, taste and speak. The process of resorption can leave patients with a sunken jaw, premature aging and an increase in wrinkles around the mouth if not stopped. Since implant supported dentures are supported the same way as natural teeth, the body’s process of resorption is halted, and patients retain the natural function of their teeth.
