Implant-retained dentures, commonly called implant-supported dentures, are artificial teeth anchored by metal tooth roots. Dr. Alsbury inserts the posts in your jawbone, where they remain securely in place when you eat, speak, and brush your teeth.
Apex Dentures Studio offers implant-retained dentures that snap into implants previously placed at another appointment.
If you’re missing any permanent teeth or need extractions, implant-retained dentures offer the following advantages:
Implant-retained dentures look, function, and feel like real teeth. They offer dramatic improvements in your smile’s appearance without significant downtime. The dentures are easy to keep clean and may last a lifetime when cared for properly.
Candidates for implant-retained dentures are those with missing permanent teeth or teeth requiring extraction due to extreme damage or decay. To determine if these dentures are best for you, Dr. Asbury examines your gums and teeth, reviews your oral health history, asks about your cosmetic goals, and evaluates the results of your most recent dental X-rays.
You might be a candidate for partial or full implant-retained dentures, based on the number of missing teeth you have and the desired results. You may first need bone grafting if you lack sufficient jawbone mass and strength. Dr. Alsbury tailors a treatment based on your specific needs.
You first receive dental implant posts, which your provider inserts into your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. As your jaw heals around the implants, the Apex Denture Studio team crafts a set of dentures that bonds to the implants. When the new teeth are ready, Dr. Alsbury ensures they fit comfortably.
Take good care of your new dentures by not chewing on hard objects, brushing your teeth after eating, and flossing daily. See a dentist regularly to undergo professional teeth cleanings and dental exams. Call Apex Denture Studio if your dentures get damaged.
