Implant Dentures

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are dentures that snap onto implants. They are a popular option for patients who are missing all of their teeth. Implant dentures are secure, comfortable, and natural-looking.

Advantages of Implant Dentures.

One of the major advantages of implant dentures over other forms of dentures is their stability. With regular dentures, the jawbones gradually change shape as the patient ages. This causes the dentures to become loose and uncomfortable. With implant dentures, the dentures are securely attached to several dental implants that are placed into the jawbone. It will not become loose because of the implants.

How are Implant Dentures Placed?

Before getting implant dentures, the patient will meet with the dentist for a consultation. They will assess the health of the mouth and review the medical history. The dentist will also take X-rays and impressions of your teeth.

A fixed implant denture is secured to the jawbone by dental implants, which serve as artificial tooth roots. Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, where they fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration. This fusion creates a secure anchorage for your replacement teeth, which will not slip or shift in your mouth. This secure fit also prevents food particles and bacteria from entering the pockets between the replacement teeth and the gums, which could cause gum disease.

Aftercare

The dentist may have specific instructions for caring for the new implant dentures. Follow them carefully to avoid complications and to ensure the implant dentures last for a long time.

After the surgery, it is vital to rinse the mouth with salt water three times a day. Mix a teaspoon of sea salt in a cup of warm water. Then, gently swish the solution around in the mouth. This will disinfect the mouth and soothe the delicate gum tissue.

It’s important that the patient eat soft foods for the first few days. Smoking can negatively affect the gum tissues, bone, and tissue in the mouth—making it difficult to heal properly.
