Dr. Ryan Clagett has years of experience placing dental implants and securely fitting dentures. Clagett Periodontics is proud to offer implant dentures, along with numerous other options for long-lasting tooth replacement for patients in Radcliff, KY.
What are Implant Dentures?
Implant dentures replace entire arches of missing teeth while providing a more secure, natural feeling fit than that offered by traditional dentures. As such, implant dentures represent a great option for patients who have experienced significant or even comprehensive tooth loss. The procedure involves standard dental implants, which are small titanium screws that we insert into the jaw, where they fuse with the surrounding bone to provide a stable and secure anchor for your dentures. The dentures themselves are customized to replicate the appearance of healthy, natural teeth.
What are the Benefits of Implant Dentures?
Implant secured dentures require fewer implants than traditional dental implants, allowing you to receive a beautiful new smile in as little as one day. They are one of the more cost-efficient restoration options available at Clagett Periodontics. Because every case is unique, the timeline may vary patient-to-patient, but many people experience a shorter treatment time and recovery period.
Additionally, implant dentures are designed to be strong, secure, and permanent. You do not have to remove the dentures at night. They do not shift out of place, they do not harm the health of your remaining natural teeth, and they look and function just like natural teeth. They also stimulate jawbone tissue for better oral-facial health and an overall more youthful appearance.
