Why should I choose implant-retained dentures?

If you’re suffering from extensive tooth loss and decay, there are many options to save your smile. Implant-retained dentures are one of the most durable, natural-looking, and sturdy options available today. Dental implants help anchor the dentures in place, preventing them from slipping or causing discomfort. Plus, they can help preserve your jaw bone, which reinforces your natural face shape and prevents premature aging. You can still remove your implant-retained denture for easy cleaning and maintenance. With proper care, implant-retained dentures can last for many years, making them a great long-term solution for tooth replacement.

The Benefits of Implant-Retained Dentures

Removable for Easy Cleaning

While the denture is firmly anchored in place by the implants, it can still be easily removed to clean. This is one of the advantages of implant-retained dentures over traditional dentures, which are held in place by suction or adhesives and can be more difficult to remove.

Easier Chewing

Because implant-retained dentures are anchored in place, they can improve your ability to chew and eat with ease. You'll be able to enjoy a wider variety of foods without worrying about your dentures slipping or causing discomfort.

Improves Jaw Health

Dental implants can help preserve the bone in your jaw, which can help prevent the jawbone from deteriorating over time. This can help maintain the shape of your face and prevent issues like premature aging.

The Implant-Retained Dentures Treatment Process

Consultation and Assessment

The first step in the implant-retained denture treatment process is a consultation with a dental professional. During this consultation, the dentist will assess your dental health and determine if implant-retained dentures are the right option for you. They will also take x-rays and impressions of your mouth to create a personalized treatment plan.

Implant Placement & Osseointegration

The next step is to have the dental implants placed. This is usually done under local anesthesia and involves the dentist surgically placing the implants into the jawbone. After the implants are placed, there is a healing period of several months during which the implants fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration.

Denture Attachment

Once the implants have fully healed and fused with the jawbone, the final step is to attach the denture to the implants. This usually involves a small metal bar or ball attachment, which allows the denture to snap onto the implants securely. Once the denture is attached, you can enjoy the benefits of having a stable and secure denture that won't slip or move around in your mouth. It's important to note that implant-retained denture treatment may require additional steps or variations depending on your individual case. Your dentist will be able to provide a more detailed treatment plan based on your specific needs.

How long do implant-retained dentures last?

With proper care and maintenance, implant-retained dentures can last for many years.

Regular check-ups with your dentist and good oral hygiene practices can help ensure that your implant-retained dentures last as long as possible.

Are implant-retained dentures more expensive than traditional dentures?

Yes, implant-retained dentures are typically more expensive than traditional dentures. The cost of implant-retained dentures varies depending on the number of implants needed and the type of denture being used. However, many people find that the benefits of implant-retained dentures, such as improved stability and function, are worth the additional cost.

Is the implant placement procedure painful?

Your dentist will provide you with post-operative instructions to help you heal as quickly as possible.
