Benefiting from Dental Implant Solutions
Implant supported dentures are one of the most secure, dependable, and long-lasting solution to full-arch replacement. These restorations are fixed onto dental implants, which are titanium posts surgically placed in the jawbone. Over the course of 3-6 months, these implants fuse with your jawbone to create a strong foundation for implant supported restorations. Unlike traditional dentures, which can slip out of place when you speak or chew, implant-supported dentures always remain firmly in place. Although your denture may still require replacing, with proper care, implants can last a lifetime. You can choose between two types of implant supported dentures:
A thin metal bar that follows the curve of your jaw is attached to 2-5 implants that have been placed in your jawbone. Clips or other types of attachments are fitted to the bar, the denture or both. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by the attachments.
Each implant in the jawbone holds a metal attachment that fits into another attachment on the denture. In most cases, the attachments on the implants are ball-shaped (“male” attachments), and they fit into sockets (“female” attachments) on the denture. In some cases, the denture holds the male attachments and the implants hold the female ones.
How We Secure Your Denture
During your consultation, we will evaluate your medical and dental history before examining your smile. Using state-of-the-art technology such as digital x-rays, an intraoral camera, and a cone beam scanner, we can review detailed images of your teeth, soft tissue, and jawbone to determine if you are a candidate for implant supported dentures. Using these scans, we can design a custom treatment plan suited to your needs and goals. Your dentures are made from an acrylic base that will look like gums onto which natural-looking porcelain or acrylic teeth are attached. Depending on the unique structure of your jawbone, you may require between 4-8 implants to support your full dental arch.
