Dental implants can replace teeth that are missing with perfect replacements that completely restore your smile’s function and aesthetic, but did you know they can also be used to add support for your dentures? Implant supported dentures feel permanent and provide added jaw support and other amazing benefits.
Have you lost the vast majority of your upper or lower teeth? You may be a candidate for our lifelike custom-made dentures.
At Dream Dentist, we create dentures that will improve your chewing ability and speech patterns. They will provide support for your facial muscles, giving you a youthful appearance.
There are four types of dentures to consider, including complete dentures, partial dentures, immediate dentures, and dental implant dentures.
A complete denture is a permanent solution that is designed after all of the teeth are removed and the gum tissue has healed. The complete denture process may take about two weeks.
Complete dentures consist of a pink plastic base that forms a seal with the gums. Your new bright, white teeth are connected to the base and usually made of porcelain or plastic.
Patients who are missing several teeth but still have some healthy teeth left in their mouth may need partial dentures. Partial dentures anchor themselves to the remaining teeth with metal clasps.
Immediate dentures are fashioned in advance so they can be placed directly after tooth extraction. You won’t have to be without teeth during the healing process at all. Once the tissues heal, Dr. Thompson can make adjustments to your immediate dentures.
Dental Implant Dentures
If you still have sufficient jaw bone density, you may want to consider dental implant dentures. Implant retained dentures snap on to titanium rods that are surgically placed into the jaw bone. Implant supported dentures are often the next-best-thing to natural teeth.
