Handcrafted Dentures That Will Not Slip
An implant-supported denture combines a prosthetic restoration for multiple missing teeth with the security of a permanent dental implant. While a conventional denture rests on top of your gums, your implant-supported denture anchors directly to the jawbone so that it will not slip. This can offer a greater degree of confidence when restoring your ability to eat, talk, and smile.
To qualify for implant-supported dentures, your jawbone must be dense enough to withstand implant dentistry. We may recommend a bone graft to help support implants if you lack the necessary tissue. Similarly, placing an implant requires gums healthy enough to seal in place. If you have any active periodontal concerns, we must get them under control before moving forward.
What Are The Benefits Of Implant-Supported Dentures?
An implant-supported denture improves upon the valuable benefits offered by conventional denture treatment. This solution offers additional stability by holding it in place permanently through implant posts instead of adhesives and natural suction. Because implant-supported dentures do not slip or click, they provide more natural-looking results, staying completely in place like your original teeth.
Implant-supported dentures also strengthen your jawbone by transferring the force of your bite through your implant posts. This helps your jaw remain structurally intact, instead of experiencing the normal atrophy that occurs after dental loss. By stabilizing your jawbone density, you preserve a more youthful appearance by preventing your face from shrinking. While a conventional denture must be refitted as the bone changes shape, your implant-supported dentures can last far longer without the need for adjustment.
Receiving Your Implant-Supported Dentures
After determining that your jaw is healthy enough to receive your implants, we will schedule an appointment for placement. Over the following months, your body’s tissues will fuse to the biocompatible posts, securing them permanently. While waiting for the jaw to heal, we will design and fabricate your dentures, working closely to ensure you are pleased with their appearance and fit. By snapping them into place, you can now enjoy a permanent set of false teeth.
