What To Expect From Implant-Held Dentures

Through implant dentistry, we can help patients who have lost teeth regain confidence in their appearance and their bite function. What might surprise you is that this approach to prosthetic work is effective at more than just supporting individual restorations. With a series of carefully placed implants, we can hold a full denture! What this means is that even someone who has experienced significant losses can regain the ability to bite, chew, and speak with more confidence. They also enjoy protection against jawbone deterioration, a problem that occurs after tooth loss. Our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office is ready to meet with you to start plans to take on your problems with tooth loss.

Can You Really Trust Dental Implants To Secure A Full Denture?

If you need more than just a single prosthetic tooth, you may worry that your options for treatment are limited. This can be especially true if you are missing an entire row of teeth. In addition to removable dentures, patients can now address this problem with a permanent denture that is held in place with a sequence of dental implants. By using this approach to restorative treatment, we can give you back your full smile, make positive changes to your bite function, and even provide lasting oral health benefits!

Planning Prosthetic Treatment To Replace A Row Of Teeth

To hold a full denture in place, we will need to provide multiple dental implants. Each one is set carefully after a review determines their ideal locations and placement angles. Before you receive your prosthetic, you will wait as you heal from the initial placement process. At the designated time, you can return to our practice to have your appliance secured. The placement gives permanent stability to a denture so that it more easily remains in place as you bite, chew, and speak, and so that it actually stimulates your jawbone tissues and helps to preserve bone density.

Enjoying Life After Your Smile Is Fully Restored

There are several benefits to having your smile restored with an implant-held restoration. You can enjoy more confidence in your smile, have an easier time biting and chewing, feel more comfortable when you speak, and better preserve your oral health. Your dentist can offer guidance on keeping your restoration and your smile healthy. At regular checkups, you can receive updates about the effectiveness of your care, and you can receive early warnings if there are any problems that need to be managed.
