What Are The Differences Between Fixed and Removable?
As you may know, a dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A single post can support a single artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a set of dentures.
In most cases, implant-supported dentures are made for the patient’s lower jaw. That’s because lower dentures tend to be the most problematic; the uppers are more stable and don’t need the extra support that implants provide.
That said, implant-supported dentures can be made for the upper and lower.
Prevent Bone Recession
Another major advantage of implant-supported entures is that they Prevent bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved. This prevents the shunken facial appearance common with traditional dentures.
