What Are Implant Dentures?
Implant dentures replace entire arches of missing teeth by offering a more secure, natural feeling fit than what you would experience with traditional dentures. Implant dentures are an especially good option for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. The procedure involves the placement of standard dental implants, which are small titanium screws that we insert into the jaw. The implants heal in place, fusing with the jawbone to provide a stable and secure anchor for your dentures. The dentures themselves are customized to look just like your naturally growing teeth, providing you with a healthy and confident smile.
What are the Benefits of Implant Dentures?
This method typically requires fewer implants than traditional dental implants, allowing you to receive a confident new smile in as little as a day. Because of this, implant dentures represent one of the most cost-effective treatment options, and also provide a shorter recovery time than traditional implant procedures. Another benefit is that implants are designed to be strong, secure, and permanent, offering a lasting solution for tooth replacement. You do not have to remove the dentures at night, and they function just like natural teeth. They also stimulate bone tissue for an improved facial appearance.
