Patients who are interested in dentures may be turned off at the idea of using dental adhesives or trusting natural suction to keep them in place. Philadelphia, PA area patients can ask their dentist about the possibility of using an implant-supported denture for the restoration of their smiles. Dr. A is pleased to offer this option for patients in the community.
What is an implant-supported denture?
Implant-supported dentures are made from acrylic and used to snap into place with several dental implants along the dental arch. The purpose of the implants is to give patients a strong, sturdy foundation for their dentures. Full dentures benefit from the placement of dental implants and are highly desirable by patients who are faced with tooth loss and the need for a reliable restoration.
Who is a candidate?
Candidates for implant-supported dentures are individuals who:
- Need to replace an entire arch of teeth
- Are looking for a reliable solution
- Have sufficient bone structure for successful implantation
- Have a healthy smile with strong gum tissue and bone
The process of obtaining dentures
Fabricating and receiving dentures does not happen overnight. Instead, it is a process that starts with an evaluation at Innovative Dental By Dr. A. Patients work with their dentist to design their smile, and then x-rays are taken to plan the placement of implants. Implants are placed during oral surgery and the denture is fabricated at a dental laboratory.
