Frequently Asked Questions About Implant Supported Dentures
If you have missing teeth and are uncomfortable with wearing dentures, you may be a candidate for implant-supported dentures. These dentures are supported by dental implants embedded in the jawbone. To be a candidate for this type of denture, you must have healthy gums, enough bone to support the dental implants and good oral hygiene habits. Additionally, it is important to be in good overall health, as this will help ensure a successful implant surgery. If you think you may be a good candidate for implant-supported dentures, talk to your dentist to learn more.
Implant-supported dentures can be made of different materials, such as acrylic, metal, or porcelain. The type of material ideal for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences.
Like traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures must be removed before sleeping. There are a few reasons for this.
- Sleeping with implant-supported dentures can lead to excessive saliva build-up, promoting bacterial growth.
- Sleeping with it can lead to increased plaque build-up and an increased risk of gum disease.
- Taking them out before sleeping gives you a chance to clean them thoroughly.
- Removing your dentures before sleeping will give your gums and implants a chance to rest and recover from the day’s wear and tear.
With proper care and maintenance, implant-supported dentures can last for many years. The average lifespan of an implant is about 20 years. With proper care, it can last even longer. However, it is important to remember that implant-supported dentures are not immune to wear and tear. Over time, the artificial teeth may become chipped or cracked, requiring replacement of the denture. When this happens, there is no need to replace the implants unless your dentist observes damage or implant failure.
Good dental hygiene habits are one of the most effective means of caring for implant-supported dentures. You should brush and floss your dentures just like your natural teeth and use mouthwash to keep them clean. Interdental brushes can help with cleaning between teeth so that plaque and tartar don’t build up. It’s vital to see your dentist regularly (at least twice a year) for regular check-ups and cleanings. It is also recommended to avoid hard and chewy foods, as well as tobacco products, to prevent damage to your dentures or implants.
Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question. Each health fund has different rules and regulations, so it is important to check with your service provider. In general, however, most health funds will only cover a portion of the cost of dental implants. If you have private health insurance, this may differ based on your premium. We advise you to check your coverage before deciding about getting implant-supported dentures.
