Are you tired of wearing traditional dentures? If so, our dentists and team may recommend that you get implant-supported dentures to replace your traditional dentures. One of the most common complaints of traditional denture wearers is that the dentures can become loose, creating a feeling of the dentures “floating” around the mouth. This looseness limits your ability to eat and speak comfortably.
Implant-supported dentures can be a cost-effective way to provide stability and functionality to your smile. Often, we can alter existing dentures to fit over dental implants, giving you a smile you are sure to feel great in. The dentures can look, feel and function like your natural teeth.
The process of getting implant-supported dentures can be somewhat lengthy but yields consistent, long-lasting results. The first step is getting a series of four to six dental implants per arch of teeth that need to be replaced. The number of implants that need to be placed will depend greatly on your smile needs. These dental implants, which resemble the appearance of screws, will be surgically placed into your jawbone. After a period of healing over the span of several months, Dr. Ibrahim El-Garawany and associates can attach your dentures to the implants.
The result of this treatment is a restored smile that looks and feels great in your mouth. After getting this treatment, you should never need to worry about wearing removable dentures.
