Dentures can be uncomfortable, irritating to the tissues and annoying. With advances in dental implants, we now have many innovative denture stabilization techniques that can change your comfort and confidence.
Implants are titanium screws placed in the bone to replace the original roots. Depending on the treatment, you may need between 4 and 8 implants to stabilize each denture in place. It is a simple procedure that can be completed with a local anesthetic. It will take three to six months for the implants to heal and attach to your jawbone to provide a solid support for the replacement teeth.
The temporary replacement teeth, if conditions allow, are placed at the same time as the implant is placed, which will remain in place until the final restoration appointment.
Once your bone has healed, a brace will be attached to the implant to hold your denture in place.
Then dentures are placed on top, to replace the missing teeth. Your dentist will carefully match the color of your cases with your natural teeth.
The use of implant-supported dentures to replace multiple teeth has the following advantages:
- Chewing function improves - denture is much more stable - reduced risk of digestive problems
- No More Worries About Annoying Situations When A Conventional Denture Can Fall Out - Improved Confidence
- Better support for facial tissues - giving a more "youthful" look
- You do not need any unpleasant dentures or pastes
- The secure denture can be removed to facilitate cleaning around the implants
