Would you say you know a lot about implant-supported dentures and their benefits? Perhaps you’ve been wearing your full dentures for many years, wishing you could find a happy medium between your current prosthetics and implants. The good news is that implant dentures provide the best of both worlds, allowing new and continuing denture wearers to enjoy the advantages of both prosthetic solutions. Wondering how clear your knowledge is regarding implant support? Test yourself to find out.
Implant Dentures True or False Quiz
- True or False: Choosing to replace all of your teeth with individual dental implants (which we will restore with individual dental crowns) typically requires a similar investment. If you want full implant dentures, it’s simply a personal preference.
- True or False: You can receive an impressive improvement in stability by choosing to support your full dentures with dental implants rather than simply relying on the natural suction within your mouth.
- True or False: Choosing to use dental implants to support your dentures may help you prevent the deterioration of your jawbone, which is a serious concern for edentulous patients – or those missing all of their teeth.
Dental Quiz Answer Key
- False. Single implants to replace a full arch of teeth will require a greater investment than choosing multiple implants placed strategically to support a full denture. If you’re looking for a more affordable solution that includes implant support, consider implant dentures.
- True. Your mouth does create natural suction, which provides some level of stability. However, if you’re wearing a full denture that we have fit securely over your dental implants, then you can expect to experience little to no slippage or other issues that you may deal with when wearing traditionally supported dentures.
- True. Your roots keep your jawbone healthy, thanks to a stimulation process that occurs when you bite down. Missing all of your teeth and their roots renders this stimulation non-existent. Placing implants restores stimulation to an extent, so your jaw receives essential nutrients to remain full and strong.
