Denture Implants

Dentures are currently one of the most widely used forms of tooth replacement, however removable dentures are well known for causing continual aggravation and embarrassment for those that wear them. Removable dentures rarely say firmly and comfortably in place, and often cause problems when speaking and eating, which is why more and more denture wearers are turning to denture implants.

Dentures are a great solution for patients looking to replace large groups of teeth. They are easy to use and give men and women a naturally beautiful smile. But dentures can often cause irritation due to movement within the mouth, and can make daily tasks such as eating and chewing difficult.

Denture implants have revolutionized the way that men and women wear dentures. Removable dentures will no longer shift in the mouth; instead the implants will hold the dentures in place, providing patients with stable, long-term support.

If you are interested in denture implants, consult with your dentist to see if you are a proper candidate. Once it is determined that dental implantation will work for you, the implants can be placed.

After the administration of a local anesthetic, incisions will be made in the gum line (one for each implant), which will allow access to the jawbone. Utilizing a specialized drill, your dentist will then create a space in the jawbone for implant insertion. The implant is then ‘screwed’ in using a specialized wrench, until only the head, or abutment, of the implant is visible above the gum line. The implants create stable support for your removable dentures.

At this point, metal housings will be attached to your dentures, one to coincide with each implant. Within each metal housing lies a rubber o-ring, which works to effectively create a tight seal when the housing is attached to the implant abutment. Once the dentures are attached to the implant, they will be held firmly in place.

Denture implants are an innovative procedure for those men and women who are looking to enhance their smile without the daily hassles of removable dentures. Find out today if denture implants are right for you.
