Implant-Retained and Supported Dentures
Dentures supported by dental implants are the preferred method of tooth replacement for people missing natural teeth.
Dental implants form a stable foundation of support for full and partial dentures, as the implants integrate with the bone to act as an anchor for the denture.
The long list of benefits include:
- Improved oral health and ability to eat
- Increased denture comfort
- Helps prevent bone loss
- Increased denture stability
- Tissue resorption (shrinkage) is reduced
- More secure and “real” feeling dentures
Full dentures replace all of your teeth in either the upper or lower arch of the mouth, or both.
In addition to restoring esthetics and function, a complete denture will re-establish proper facial structure, including support for the lips and cheeks.
Partial dentures replace one or several teeth that are missing, and are supported by the remaining natural teeth & tissues. Partials can be made of different materials, including acrylics, metals, and other combinations.
With the latest designs, materials, and techniques, they can be quite comfortable to wear. They also aid in preventing the natural teeth from shifting or drifting into open spaces, and help with chewing.
An immediate denture is placed in the mouth immediately following extractions of some or all natural teeth. With this method, you avoid the need to go without your new smile during the healing period.
A series of impressions and measurements are taken beforehand to ensure a proper fit, as well as post-operative care to keep the dentures fitting properly as the gums heal.
A reline adds new base material to the tissue surface of a loose or improperly fitting denture. Relines are required when changes to the gums occur due to resorption (shrinkage), which can be caused by loss of weight, loss of teeth, loss of bone, and aging. This procedure can generally be done the same day.
A soft liner is most often placed in a lower denture, and acts as a cushion against the tissues in the lower jaw. This helps displace pressure, minimizing chronic soreness on the gums, and can even help the fit in certain situations.
Denture repairs may be required for broken, cracked, or chipped dentures. In many cases, a broken denture can be restored to its original state. However, this situation can be indicative of underlying problems with the denture, something which can be assessed by your denturist.
If further extractions are required, teeth can generally be added to an existing denture. Most repairs can easily be done in one day, often while you wait.
