Traditional dentures are designed to replace your teeth so you can enjoy speaking, eating, and smiling normally. However, if you have ill-fitting artificial teeth, they may slide or slip in your mouth; they may feel uncomfortable; and they often require messy dental adhesives to stay in place—successful adherence not guaranteed. At Urban Dentistry, our skilled dentist offers a more advanced option. Implant supported dentures can provide the results you desire, including stability, comfort, convenience, and aesthetics, without the typical drawbacks of traditional dentures.
If you’re tired of denture slippage and discomfort, contact us today about implant supported dentures. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will answer questions, schedule your consultation, and help you find the right dental treatment for your needs.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures can improve both the form and function of your teeth with exceptional results. We utilize the most advanced techniques available and customize your treatment to suit your unique anatomy and expressed goals. Benefits of implant supported (anchored) dentures include:
- Enhanced comfort and stability
- Reduced likelihood of food getting trapped underneath dentures
- Preservation of facial bone strength and density
- Reduced wear and tear of gum tissue and surrounding oral structures
- No need for dental adhesives
- Results that both look and feel natural
Many patients develop a renewed sense of confidence and well-being after switching from traditional dentures to implant supported dentures. In addition to this procedure, we also offer full dental implant treatments. If you prefer traditional complete or partial dentures, we also provide expertly made, custom-fit models. We believe a comprehensive selection of state-of-the-art tooth replacement options allows you to choose the best treatment for your needs and goals.
What to Expect
You will need adequate jawbone density and strength to be an ideal candidate for implant supported dentures. When you arrive for your initial consultation, our experienced dental team will examine your oral structures to see if this technique will be right for you. In the event bone density is lacking, bone grafting may be an option in order to better accommodate an implant; or traditional dentures may offer a more ideal treatment. During the evaluation, we will also discuss your goals and concerns, and we will answer any questions you may have. Your comfort, safety, and results are our primary considerations, and we want your experience to be as pleasant as possible.
Implant supported dentures will be anchored into place using titanium posts. These dental implants will be surgically affixed to the bone, functioning as the tooth root. The dentures can later be attached to the dental implants, where they should remain without slipping, sliding, shifting, or wiggling. As a result, you can use your teeth as normal and put aside concerns about their appearance or function.
