When it comes to replacing an entire arch of missing or severely damaged teeth, a number of options are available to patients—all of which can be beneficial for the right candidates. Our highly experienced and extensively trained implant dentist, Dr. John D. Beckwith, recommends implant-supported dentures whenever appropriate for patients, due to the immediate and long-term benefits the solution offers. Unlike traditional dentures, which simply rest on top of the gums, implant-supported dentures are a type of overdenture that is attached to a set of dental implants that have fused with the jawbone.
Whether you are receiving dentures for the first time or are considering switching from traditional dentures to implant-supported dentures, learn about some of the major advantages of the dental implant solution below.
