When you’re suffering from tooth loss, the problems can be more than cosmetic – missing teeth can result in jaw instability, speech problems or even issues when eating. If tooth loss is affecting your daily life, implant-supported dentures in Lake Katrine are an affordable, long-term solution that can restore your quality of life. These appliances are easy to care for and are placed during a pain-free procedure. Keep reading to learn more about this effective restorative treatment.

What Are Implant-supported Dentures?

If you’re looking for a stable restorative dental option, it may be time to ask a dentist about implant-supported dentures. This type of denture is ideal for those with significant tooth loss but with enough jawbone to support implants. Surgically attached to the jawbone, an implant-supported denture won’t shift or dislodge when you’re speaking or chewing.

Dentists usually use implant-supported dentures to restore teeth in the bottom jaw, but they can be used to replace the upper arch as well. During your consultation, the dentist will examine the condition of your teeth and jaw and help you decide whether our affordable implant-supported dentures are right for you.

How Does an Implant-Supported Denture Work, and What Happens During the Procedure?

A natural-looking solution for missing teeth, dentures are created using a gum-colored base and prosthetic teeth, usually fabricated with acrylic or porcelain. With an implant-supported appliance, the denture base is secured in place using dental implants. These appliances are available in two major types: ball-retained and bar-retained. With ball-retained implant dentures, the denture is held in place using ball-shaped abutments, which fit into sockets on the denture. Bar-retained dentures consist of a single bar to secure the denture along with a clasp system that allows the appliance to be removed.

The implant-supported procedure usually occurs over two appointments. If your dentist determines you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the implant posts will be placed during a surgical visit. As your mouth heals – usually between three to six months – the implants will fuse to the jaw and become a stable foundation for your new denture. When you return to have your denture placed, the dentist will surgically expose the tops of the implants and secure the base and prosthetic teeth. This can sometimes be done over one visit.

If you have questions about the denture implants procedure, please contact our practice.

Is the Cost of Denture Implants Affordable?

Every patient has unique needs when it comes to restoring missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures in Lake Katrine are fully customized, meaning that their cost varies. The health of your teeth pre-surgery, the number of appointments needed, your location, and your insurance plan will factor into the implant-supported dentures cost. It’s important to note that some providers will not cover implant dentistry because it’s considered cosmetic; we encourage you to contact your provider to review your options.

Even without insurance, affordable quality implant-supported dentures are possible with our financing and payment options. Don’t wait another minute to find out how you can restore your smile. Give us a call today to find out more about getting implant dentistry when on a budget.

What Are the Advantages of Implant-supported Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures offer a long-term, reliable solution for tooth loss that can give you a dazzling smile. While traditional dentures can slip or move when you speak and eat, implant dentures will not shift during your daily activities. You’ll be able to eat and enunciate with confidence with an implant-supported appliance. They also require fewer adjustments than traditional dentures because they are attached to the jaw.

Denture implants offer health benefits as well. When teeth are missing, the jaw may shrink over time due to lack of stimulation. The denture implants provide stimulation to the jaw, preventing further shrinkage and protecting your jaw health. Without restoring missing teeth, you may develop further jaw complications in the future.

Getting an implant-supported denture can also increase your quality of life. The ability to speak clearly, chew and care for your smile can boost your self-esteem. If you’re wondering what’s possible with denture implants, give us a call today to get started.

How Do You Take Care of an Implant-supported Denture?

Good oral hygiene can help you keep your new dentures looking great for decades. Prosthetic teeth and the connecting abutments should be cleaned in the morning and at night to avoid bacteria buildup. A soft-bristled toothbrush should be used to remove plaque and debris, and a proxabrush can also be used for more intensive cleaning. If it’s difficult to floss between the prosthetic teeth, use a threader to help the floss glide more easily. Contact us if you have questions about caring for your denture implants.

Should You Get Implant-supported Dentures?

After discovering the many benefits of denture implants, you might wonder, “Who is eligible to get implant-supported dentures?” Only an experienced dentist can determine whether this type of denture is right for you.
