Implant retained dentures

What are implant retained dentures?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made out of titanium. The implants are surgically placed in the jawbone and mimic the roots of your natural teeth.

The implants are then capped with a dental crown. The crown is a lab-fabricated tooth that mimics the appearance and function of a natural tooth.

How are implant retained dentures placed?

Dr. Smith will surgically place several titanium implants into your jawbone. The implant posts will act as tooth roots, providing stability and strength to your restoration. The implants will fuse to your jawbone over a period of a few months, giving you a sturdy and natural looking restoration.

What are the benefits of implant retained dentures?

Dr. Chang recommends implant retained dentures for patients who need dentures that won’t slip or shift. Implant retained dentures attach to your jawbone with implants, rather than using adhesive paste. This means they won’t move or fall out of your mouth while you’re eating, talking, or laughing. Another benefit of implant retained dentures is that you won’t have to remove them to clean your teeth. Simply brush them as you would your natural teeth.

What happens when implant retained dentures fail?

If implant retained dentures fail, they can usually be replaced with either a fixed bridge or overdentures. These prosthetic devices rest on top of a gum-colored base that follows the natural curvature of the gums. The base is designed to fit over a small number of implants, which act as anchors.

What are the different types of implant retained dentures?

There are a variety of different types of implant retained dentures, so here we’ll go over some of the common ones.

The most common type of implant retained denture is the snap on denture. This denture attaches to the implants by snapping onto the abutment. In most cases, this type of denture is made to be a temporary solution, as they don’t offer enough stability for long term use.

Another type of implant retained denture is the permanent denture. These dentures are screwed into the implants. This denture is more likely to have a better fit, as well as offer better long term results.

How do I care for my implant retained dentures?

Be sure to brush your implant retained dentures daily. This should include cleaning both the prosthetic and your natural teeth and gums. Your dentist can recommend the best type of brush and toothpaste for cleaning implants. Be sure to use a soft bristled brush and toothpaste made for sensitive teeth.

In addition, it is important to clean your dentures daily. Start by brushing your dentures with a soft toothbrush. Next, brush your gums and natural teeth to remove any food debris. Finally, rinse your dentures off with clean water before placing them back in your mouth.

Yes! Implant-retained dentures are more stable, give patients more chewing power, and are more comfortable. The implant-retained dentures are anchored to dental implants, and your cheeks and lips are gently supported by the implants.
