Secure Your Denture with Dental Implants
Are you among the 35 million Americans who do not have any remaining natural teeth? You have probably tried conventional dentures to regain your ability to eat your favorite foods; however, they did not give you the results you wanted. Now, you can enjoy the next best thing to your natural teeth using dental implants in Klamath Falls. Premier Care Dental can complete your smile with implant-retained dentures.
How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?
Traditional dentures feature a custom-made acrylic base held in place using suction or an adhesive. Despite several innovations over the years to improve their fit and aesthetics, they never truly look or feel natural. As an alternative, over 500,000 people a year are turning to the security of dental implants.
Your denture is secured to your jaw by surgically placing an average of 4 implant posts into the bone. Your bone fuses to the posts, so you will never need to worry about any slipping or irritation again. This also allows the implants to stay in place forever with the right aftercare to make a long-term investment in your smile.
Am I A Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?
If you are missing all your natural teeth in one or both arches, you may be a candidate for implant-retained dentures in Klamath Falls. To ensure there are minimal risk factors for implant failure, Dr. Jordan Singer provides the consultation you need.
Besides a visual examination, he also takes digital x-rays and a CT scan to assess your oral structures and the density of your jawbone. Your jaw must be able to support the posts; however, if it is compromised, bone grafting can make you a candidate for the treatment.
He also discusses your medical and lifestyle history to ensure your body can properly heal and fight infections.
The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure
The CT scans taken during your consultation are used to pinpoint the precise location for the placement of your implant posts, which are surgically inserted into your jawbone. Sedation or anesthesia is used to ensure your comfort while your gum tissue is opened to expose your jawbone. Small holes are drilled into it to allows the posts to be inserted. Now, the healing process can begin. Over the next several weeks, your jawbone fuses to the posts. After you have healed, you are given your custom-made denture, which clips or clasps onto the posts via abutments.
