Replace Your Missing Teeth with Stable and Secure Implant-supported Dentures
Conventional dentures are excellent, but implant-supported dentures are the real deal. Anchored securely in the jawbone, implant dentures combine the beauty of dentures and the stability of implants. At A Dental & Denture in Settle, Washington, our team has used implant dentures to help many patients restore their smile’s beauty and function after tooth loss. You, too, can join the list of our transformed patients by scheduling an appointment today.
What to expect from the treatment
Restoring teeth with implant dentures starts with a consultation with our dental team. We evaluate your oral health and overall well-being to determine your suitability for the treatment. If given the green light, we numb your gums and place 4-6 titanium posts in precise locations in the bone. This outpatient procedure is carried out under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort.
After surgery, we’ll leave your implants to heal and fuse for 4-6 months. During this period, we’ll place a temporary restoration to ensure you continue using your smile. After healing and integration, you’ll return to our office for the final restoration. We’ll attach abutments to your implants and place a natural-looking denture to snap onto the abutments.
The implant denture can be fixed, but you can opt for a secure but removable option for easier cleaning. Whatever the choice, you’ll get a restoration that looks and functions like your own teeth.
The benefits of implant-supported dentures
Since conventional dentures rest on the gums, everyday grinding and chewing can cause gum shrinkage. With dental implants “rooted” in the jawbone, we eliminate shrinkage because the biting forces are absorbed through the implant into the bone. This design eliminates sore spots, and the dentures snap securely into the implants for a stable fit.
Implant-supported dentures offer numerous benefits. Some include:
- Enhanced stability
- They prevent bone loss to some extent
- Easy to clean at home
- Restored oral function to nearly 100%
- Better aesthetics
- Durable treatment
The next best thing to natural teeth
