Implant Supported Dentures Can Restore an Attractive, Functional Smile
When adult teeth are lost due to injury, damage, or decay, there are a number of oral health consequences. Oral functions are likely to become difficult or painful, the health and structure of adjacent teeth become compromised, and the jaw bone may begin to lose density. On top of this, the appearance of the smile is obviously affected, leaving many embarrassed to laugh, smile, or show their teeth in any way. Fortunately, there are many solutions that allow patients to restore the health and beauty of the smile. Implant Supported Dentures are a healthy restorative treatment for patients who have lost some or all of their teeth. However, because of the reputation dentures have for being ill-fitting and unnatural looking, many are hesitant to undergo this form of treatment. With dental implants, Dr. Steve Brown offers patients a more secure and attractive solution than traditional dentures to his Fort Worth patients.
Am I a Candidate for Implant Supported Dentures?
In the simplest of terms, if you are missing most or all of your teeth, then you are likely candidate for implant supported dentures. Dentures come in either partial or complete sets so that they can replace a group of teeth, an entire arch of teeth, or even a complete set of teeth. Implant Supported Dentures address tooth loss in order to restore oral function, comfort, and confidence to our patients. Patients who have experienced any of the following side effects of tooth loss should consider this treatment:
- Difficulty chewing, eating, or speaking
- A loss of density in the jaw bone
- A noticeable change to facial structure
- A shifting or caving in of remaining natural teeth
- A decrease in self-confidence
Dr. Brown believes in offering his patients only the best dental treatments, so when addressing these concerns, he opts to provide patients with implant supported dentures rather than traditional dentures. Implant dentures are affixed to the jaw bone in order to provide patients with the most secure and comfortable fit. Traditionally, patients who undergo dental implant treatment must have a significant amount of bone density in order to adequately support the implants. However, we offer a variety of dental implant techniques including the following:
- Traditional dental implants
- Small Diameter Implants
- Mini Dental Implants
- Bar-supported dentures
- Bone grafting
Because we offer all types of implants, we can meet the specific oral health needs of each of our patients, making virtually any patient who has experienced significant tooth loss a great candidate for dental implant dentures.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures offer patients all of the benefits of traditional dentures, which include increased comfort, improved oral function, as well as an aesthetic improvement to the smile. However, they go beyond the benefits of traditional dentures and also offer a superior level of comfort, security, and confidence.
- They remove the need for adhesives.
- They drastically reduce slippage, offering a firmer fit.
- They offer even greater comfort, taking stress off of your gums.
- The dental implants stimulate the jaw bone so that healthy tissue is preserved and the new tissue growth is promoted.
