How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?
You may already be familiar with traditional dentures. If so, you know that
they rely on natural suction to stay in place in the mouth. While dentures
are a common way to replace missing teeth, they are not the most comfortable
or sturdy option available.
Instead of natural suction, implant-retained dentures are anchored securely
in the jawbone by 4 to 6 titanium implants. These dental implants fuse with
the bone to provide maximum support for a dental prosthetic, such as
dentures. Dental implants in Garland are the only restorative solution that
replaces teeth from the roots up.
Am I a Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?
You may be an ideal candidate for implant-retained dentures if:
- You have lost most or all of your teeth
- You have a thick, strong jawbone
- You are free of gum disease and other oral infections
- You are in fair overall health
- You do not smoke
- You practice excellent oral hygiene at home
Even if you are not the “ideal” candidate, you may still be able
to benefit from implant-supported dentures. For example, if your jawbone is
not sturdy enough to support dental implants, you may be able to undergo a
bone graft procedure to strengthen it.
The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure
At Dentistry by Brand, we are proud to offer start-to-finish implant
treatment! Instead of having to see an outside specialist, you can save time
and money by partnering with one of our implant dentists in Garland to
restore your smile.
Here are the steps of the implant-retained dentures procedure:
Initial consultation – Your dentist will carefully
examine your teeth and mouth and review your oral and general health
Implant placement – Next, 4 to 6 implants will be
placed in strategic locations in your jawbone beneath the gums.
Osseointegration – Over the next few months, the
biocompatible implants will fuse with the surrounding bone to create a
stable foundation for your dentures.
Abutment placement – You will return for a second
minor surgery in which abutments, important connector pieces, are attached
to the implant posts.
Final restoration – Once your implants have fully
healed, we will welcome you back so your dentist can securely attach your
new dentures onto your dental implants.
Benefits of Combining Dentures & Dental Implants
Combining dental implants with dentures delivers clear benefits that
traditional dental prosthetics may not provide. Here are just a few reasons
why so many men and women in Garland choose implant-retained dentures to
restore their smiles:
Unlike traditional dentures, which can slip when eating or speaking,
implant-retained dentures are securely set in place in the jaw.
The maximum support provided by implants gives dentures a strong bite
force, making it easier to eat hard or tough foods.
Implants provide stimulation to the jawbone to prevent bone deterioration,
so you will never have to worry about the fit of your dentures.
Caring for implant-retained dentures is just as easy as taking care of
High-quality material produces implant-retained dentures that look and
feel like natural teeth.
