Why Are Implant-supported Dentures a Better Denture Alternative?
Replacing missing teeth can preserve your facial structure, improve the aesthetics of your smile, and allow you to eat and speak properly. Implant-supported dentures are held in place by implant posts or a metal bar that is secured into the jawbone. As a result, your replacement teeth will remain firmly in place, meaning you never have to worry about slippage. Implant dentures are available in both fixed and removable varieties and can be used to replace upper or lower teeth.
How Do I Go About Getting Implant-supported Dentures?
To receive implant dentures, you first need to schedule a consultation with our dentist. After a thorough examination, you and the dentist can decide if implant-supported dentures are the right option for you. If so, a second appointment is scheduled so that the implants can be set into place. After the implants have sufficiently healed and fused with the jawbone, you’ll return for a second procedure to expose the implants in preparation for the denture. The final visit takes place about two weeks later during which the denture is set in place. Overall, the process takes five to seven months. In certain cases, the dentist may be able to use a one-step procedure, which allows the patient to get a complete denture in less time.
Can I Find Affordable Quality Implant-supported Dentures in Chesapeake?
A number of factors will determine the final cost of denture implants, including the type and number of implants required. We can discuss your final cost once the dentist has completed your initial consultation. Our staff may be able to recommend options to help you manage your implant-supported dentures cost.
Why Should I Choose Implant-supported Dentures in Chesapeake?
The following are just a few of the reasons why an increasing number of patients are opting for implant-supported dentures over traditional dentures:
- Implanted dentures stay in place without the need for messy adhesives.
- Because they are more stable, implants may feel and function more like natural teeth.
- Implants reinforce the jawbone resulting in less natural bone loss.
Is It Easy to Clean and Maintain Implant-supported Dentures?
If you select a fixed denture, all that you have to do is brush and floss as normal. Removable dentures should be taken out each night and given a thorough cleaning. It is important to continue to see your dentist so that the dentures can be adjusted as needed and the implant attachments can be checked for damage and wear.
