Our dental team can help you determine if these advanced denture options are the right choice for you.
What Is an Implant-Supported Denture?
Implant dentures are artificial teeth that are attached to implants in your jaw. These implant-supported dentures differ from traditional dentures because they are permanently affixed to implants that are placed into your jaw and allowed to heal there. This can provide you with the next best thing to your natural teeth and can allow you to bite, chew and talk with absolute confidence that your teeth will stay in place. Our dental team will examine your jaw to determine whether you have adequate bone remaining in this area to hold your implants securely in place. Dental implants and attached dentures are available for upper dentures, lower dentures or both.
How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?
Dental implants are placed directly into the bones of the jaw. There are two basic types of implant-supported dentures:
- Ball-retained dentures connect to your implants using individual ball-shaped attachments that connect with sockets inside your dentures. This allows them to stay in place even during chewing and biting.
- Bar-retained dentures are attached to a bar that is connected to multiple implants. This type of implant denture is ideally suited to full rows of replacement teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth.
The dental implant process typically requires a number of appointments to complete, including an initial consultation and any necessary follow-up visits. If you require extractions, these procedures will take place before other treatments can begin. The placement and positioning of your implants will usually require another appointment, as will the attachment of your dentures to your implants once they have had an opportunity to heal.
Our affordable, quality implant-supported dentures are typically constructed of artificial teeth connected to an acrylic base. The teeth may be fabricated from porcelain, acrylic or other materials that look and feel like your natural teeth. This can help you to look your best and to feel confident in your appearance and in the performance of these teeth.
How Much Do Implant-Supported Dentures Cost?
The cost of denture implants typically varies depending on the configuration of the denture, the number of implants and the cost of materials. Our team offers affordable, quality implant-supported dentures that are designed specifically to suit your needs and to provide you with the most cost-effective solutions for a brighter smile. We will work with your insurance company to keep your out-of-pocket expenses as low as we can. Our office can also provide you with payment options designed specifically to ensure that your treatment plan is as affordable as possible.
What Are the Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures offer some important benefits, including the following:
- Improved comfort
- Easier care and greater convenience
- Added confidence that your dentures will stay securely in place
- A more natural appearance that closely resembles the look of your natural teeth
Taking steps to secure these benefits can help you to feel much more confident when showing off your smile, chewing, eating and completing other activities that might cause anxiety if you have traditional dentures.
