Implant Supported Dentures
You may not realize it, but if you are missing all of your top or bottom teeth then you are not alone. There are millions of Americans in the exact same situation as you. For decades, conventional dentures have been the preferred option for these patients, but now there is a better choice: implant supported dentures. Elite Dental of Natick can tell you everything you need to know about this exciting new dental innovation.
What are Implant Supported Dentures?
If you are familiar with conventional dentures, then you are familiar with the basics of implant supported dentures. Both are dental appliances designed to replace a full arch. The difference is how they anchor themselves. While traditional dentures form a seal with your gums, these revolutionary new dentures use a technology called dental implants. Implants are miniature titanium rods that one of our skilled oral surgeons will place in your jawbone. These rods fuse with the bone and the dentures snap onto them, offering unparalleled stability.
What to Expect When Getting Implant Supported Dentures
Getting implant supported dentures typically requires coming into our office at least a couple of times. First, we want to get to know you and your teeth, going over your medical history and performing a thorough dental exam to determine where your implants need to be placed. We can usually place the implants in a single sitting. While the dental implants begin the process of fusing with your jawbone to become a natural part of your body, we will get to work on designing and manufacturing your custom dentures. When everything is completed, you will make one last visit so we can place the dentures and make sure they fit perfectly.
