The Importance of Implants for Denture Patients
Implant Dentures, Snap on Dentures, or Dental Implants for Dentures are an excellent alternative for patients who are losing or missing teeth in one of both arches. Dental Implants can help maintain the bone in the jaws and improve your ability to chew. It also plays a vital role in securing a removable denture in the mouth.
Implant Dentures – The Clear Choice
With over 40 years of extensive clinical research and a high success rate, the use of denture implants, as a preferred alternative to standard conventional dentures is very common. Our patients who have elected implants to secure their dentures are more confident, have a better ability to chew and feel happier about themselves. Dental implants feel like real teeth compared to regular dentures. In addition, implant dentures feel more stable and secure.
THE BENEFITS OF IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES
If you are looking for a durable and comfortable way to replace missing teeth, you should consider this solution. Implant supported dentures make it easier to eat your favorite meals and engage in normal daily activities, because they will remain securely in your mouth. You will not need to worry about them coming loose or slipping out of place while eating, speaking, or engaging in high-impact activities. Instead, you can rest assured that your teeth will be secure regardless of what you do. Not only will this prevent unnecessary embarrassment, but it will also make life more comfortable, since your dentures will not be rubbing against your gums, causing irritation.
The Process of Getting Implant Supported Dentures: The Procedure
Before we can begin the actual procedure, we will need to examine your gums to ensure you do not have any gum disease that needs to be addressed. If you do, we will treat it first. Next, we will take x-rays to determine the density of your jawbone and if it is sufficient for supporting the implants. Typically it will be, since these implants are shorter than traditional ones. We will then take an impression or mold of your mouth along with measurements. This information will be sent to the lab so they can create your new set of false teeth to our exact specifications.
When it is time for the implant procedure, we will have you come back in and numb your gums and provide you with anesthesia. Typically, we will then place four small implants under your gum line. These implants will serve as anchors that your new set of teeth can attach to. Once they are firmly in place, we can snap in your dentures. These implants are an alternative to simply hoping your dentures stay in place or using adhesive to ensure they do. With implants to secure to, your teeth will not fall out, even if you are going on a run or eating pizza. For more information, call.
