Dentures are typically known to slide around your mouth with annoying paste, but there is a better option available for you. Implant-supported dentures use dental implants to act as a foundation, keeping your dentures completely secure.
When electing to use implant-supported dentures, you will have the opportunity to choose if you want them to be removable or fixed. If you are unsure which will be best for you, Dr. Kelly is here to give her expert opinion.
The first step of the procedure is placing the dental implants. To get the best results, we use the assistance of a CBCT scan, which provides us with a 3D image of your oral region. This allows for a much more precise placement. After Dr. Kelly places the implants, we will snap on your custom-made dentures.
Implant-supported dentures are a viable restoration, but they might not be right for everyone. To place the dentures, you will need a healthy jawbone. Too much time without teeth can cause it to deteriorate, leaving it unable to support the implants.
Compared to traditional removable dentures, implant-supported dentures have numerous unique benefits. You can look forward to:
