Dentures are a restorative solution that replaces full arches of teeth or a complete set of missing teeth. This solution to missing teeth provides stable, natural looking results. Custom-made comfortable dentures restore the form and function of teeth. Dental implants can also be used to secure a denture in place. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw and used to anchor a denture arch to provide a more stable restoration.
Benefits of Implant Secured Dentures
Dentures can offer many benefits to patients, such as:
- Stable results
- Improved bite function
- Renewed speech and chewing ability
- Bone retention
- Long-lasting results
Treatment with Dentures & Partials
Partials, also known as removable dentures, are made of replacement teeth that are attached to a base. Before placement, dental impressions of teeth are taken for creating the custom restoration. A temporary restoration may be placed while the final one is being made. Partials are color-matched and shaped for a natural look.
The process for implant-secured dentures begins when dental implants are surgically inserted into the jaw bone. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, an abutment and dental crown will be added to each implant. Then, a custom-fit denture will be attached. The restoration is created from stain and decay-resistant material that is long-lasting.
