Implants can make your dentures feel new again!

Millions Of Americans Have Successfully Used Dentures To Restore Their Smile After Tooth Loss, But They Aren’t Without Drawbacks.

Even high-quality dentures that look and feel great are initially likely to become loose or ill-fitting over time. This can seriously impact your quality of life, making everything from socializing with friends to enjoying a meal more difficult. At Royal Dental Care, we have a fantastic way to improve these issues: implant-retained dentures.

How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?

Traditional dentures are held in place with suction and adhesive, while implant-retained dentures are more securely held in place with dental implants. One option is a removable implant denture. As the name implies, you can remove it and put it back in yourself.

A fixed implant denture is “bolted” into place and must be removed in our office. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of each and which one is right for you during a consultation.

Is An Implant-Retained Denture Right For You?

Since everyone’s needs differ, we look at several factors to ensure you are a great candidate for an implant-retained denture. During a consultation, we’ll evaluate all of the following so we can recommend the best treatment plan for your needs:

  • The bone density in your jaws
  • Lifestyle choices such as tobacco use
  • Gum health
  • Oral hygiene habits
  • Medical and dental history
  • Current medications

The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure

The procedure for getting dental implants at Royal Dental Care is done in phases:

  1. First, we will complete dental work that is considered necessary beforehand, including extractions or bone grafts.
  2. For the first part of the procedure, you’ll have a minor, in-office surgery to place the implants in your jaw. Often, anywhere between two and six implants are needed per arch.
  3. The implants are then given several months to integrate, or fuse, with the surrounding bone of the jaw. A temporary denture is made at this time.
  4. The final phase is coming back to get your permanent denture. At this visit, we’ll ensure everything has healed well, and your new denture feels great.

Benefits Of Combining Both Full Dentures & Dental Implants

By using dental implants to anchor your dentures, we can give you all the advantages of a complete denture, along with the strength and support of implants. Here are some of the benefits you can expect:

  • Your denture won’t shift or “slip” during meals, so you’ll have the chewing power and stability to eat your favorite foods comfortably.
  • Lifestyle choices such as tobacco use
  • When a denture is held in place with implants, you’ll need no dental adhesive.
  • Your dentures will fit firmly and stay that way much longer, so they won’t need costly adjustments nearly as often.

At Royal Dental Care, we’re thrilled to use dental implants to improve our patients’ quality of life and help them get the most out of their dentures. Wondering if implant-retained dentures are right for you? Don’t hesitate to give our office a call!
