How Can We Improve the Fit of Your Dentures?
While the traditional dentures of today certainly fit and function better than ever before, they still require ongoing re-lines and adjustments to continue fitting well. Anchoring a denture with dental implants is a game-changer because it dramatically improves the fit, function, and chewing strength of dentures while also improving your overall oral health in several ways.
This provides many benefits: your jawbone and facial structure are preserved, the need for adhesive is greatly reduced or eliminated, and you won’t have to worry about “slips” the way you might with a traditional denture.
How Does the Process Work?
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Parker. He’ll begin by discussing your goals and assessing your dental history before doing a thorough exam and taking detailed images of your jaws. With these images, he’ll be able to evaluate your bone levels to see if there’s enough bone mass to support implants. Even if it’s been a long time since you lost your teeth and your jawbone has become thinner, there’s a good chance implants are still an option for you. In some cases, he may recommend a preliminary procedure such as a bone graft, but he’ll discuss that during your consultation so you know what to expect.
The titanium implants used to secure dentures are generally smaller and shorter than the traditional kind and, in most cases, just 2-6 implants are needed per arch. For patients who are interested in All-On-Four, they can usually have their implants placed and receive their new prosthetic teeth the same day.
