HOW DO FULL MOUTH DENTAL IMPLANTS DIFFER FROM TRADITIONAL DENTURES?
Traditional dentures rest on and are supported by gum tissue. The upper denture covers the roof of the mouth and some level of suction can be developed for retention. It is generally not possible to develop suction in a lower denture because of the smaller surface area as compared to the upper. Additionally tongue movement tends to upset the denture. Implant-stabilized restorations offer superior chewing ability and are more like natural teeth.
