Implant-Retained Dentures – Mt. Holly, NJ
Stabilize Your Denture with Dental Implants
You probably never expected it to happen to you, but now you’re among the 35 million Americans who don’t have any of their natural teeth left. If you’re like most people who have lost their teeth, you’ve tried a traditional full denture. Although several improvements over the years have enhanced their fit and aesthetics, they still have their limitations. Now, you can permanently eliminate any slipping or irritation by securing your denture with dental implants. We’ll help you enjoy nearly identical replicas of your real teeth.
How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?
A traditional denture has been the go-to solution to replace an entire arch of missing teeth for over 100 years. Elite technology is used to create an acrylic base to hold the carefully crafted prosthetic teeth. It’s attached to the gum tissue using suction or an adhesive. Now, they are more realistic than ever, but they will never truly feel natural.
As an alternative to an adhesive or suction, many patients are choosing to stabilize their denture with dental implants. This replaces both the roots and crowns of your teeth to enjoy exceptional results that aren’t possible with a standard denture.
Am I a Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?
If you’re lost all your teeth in one or both arches and a full denture didn’t give you the results you wanted, it’s time to discover another solution for full mouth replacement. In most cases, if you have good oral and general health, you’re a candidate for implant-retained dentures, but you may need additional procedures before your placement surgery, like bone grafting. We’ll perform a comprehensive consultation and create a personalized treatment plan to rebuild a beautiful, functional smile.
The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure
The process to replace your missing teeth with an implant-retained denture will occur in multiple stages over several months, but it’s time well spent. After you’ve healed from any previous treatments, oral surgery is used to strategically place implant posts into pre-determined locations in your jawbone. Over the next several months, your jaw fuses to the posts through a process called osseointegration. After your jaw has healed, special fixtures are placed on each post to connect your denture.
