Just like traditional dentures, ones retained by implants are crafted to make everyday living easier and more enjoyable. They are customized, natural-looking replacement teeth that are attached to a small, gum-colored acrylic base. Instead of relying on natural suction to stay in place, these restorations are secured to titanium dental implants that have naturally fused with your jawbone. This way, you won’t have to worry about having them slip or shift in your mouth while you’re eating or speaking.
Whether you’re unsatisfied with the traditional dentures you currently have or haven’t replaced your missing teeth with any other solution, the best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cea. He will examine your facial structure to determine whether your jawbone is dense enough to bond with the implants and examine the health of your teeth and gums to determine if there are any lingering problems that need to be treated.
Many patients aren’t ideal candidates for the dental implant procedure right off the bat. Some require preparatory services such as bone grafts, periodontal therapy, or even sinus lifts before their surgery can be scheduled. This provides a strong and healthy base for your replacement teeth to be secured to, increasing your replacement teeth’s success and lifespan.
Using the information that we gathered during your consultation, Dr. Cea will determine the best places for your implants to be placed. After your surgery, our team will temporarily fit you with a denture so you can still have teeth while your gums are healing from the procedure. Once your healing period is over and the implants have naturally fused with your jawbone, we’ll place your custom-crafted permanent dentures so you can enjoy a beautiful and completed set of teeth.
When you invest in implant-retained dentures, you’ll be able to enjoy countless advantages over getting traditional dentures. Here are some benefits of this modern restorative procedure:
