Do you dread putting in your dentures every morning? Do they frequently leave sore spots on your gums or move around when it’s most inconvenient? Unfortunately these are common problems for denture wearers, but here at Envy Smile Dental Spa we have a great solution for you. It’s an implant-supported denture.
Advantages of an Implant-Supported Denture
With an implant-supported denture your teeth will never move around again. Instead you can enjoy the feeling of having teeth that are securely held in place and which will look amazingly natural. Just think about that for a second and imagine all kinds of foods that you’d be able to eat once again and which are impossible to chew properly with loose dentures. So what are dental implants and how could they help you?
Explaining a Bit About Dental Implants
Dental implants are the most advanced way to replace teeth that may have been lost to disease or trauma. Unlike other types of tooth replacement, dental implants are designed to closely replicate a complete tooth root, consisting of a titanium alloy post that is inserted into your jawbone during a small surgical procedure. There is no need to worry about this as it’s actually quite quick and we will make sure that you don’t feel a thing.
Once in position, the post will gradually bond with your jawbone as new bone cells grow on and around it so it becomes firmly anchored in place. By using just a few dental implants, an implant-supported denture firmly holds in place. It will clip onto the dental implants so it is held rigidly in place. If you prefer, you can get rid of your denture completely. Dental implants are strong enough to support a fixed bridge of teeth, replacing a complete arch of natural teeth.
We Plan Every Implant Procedure Very Carefully
At our dental practice we take enormous care when designing dentures or complete bridges of teeth. We make sure you get the very best cosmetic results while benefiting from teeth that are fully functional. Every implant procedure carried out at Envy Smile Dental Spa is intricately planned, ensuring that treatment will proceed smoothly and comfortably for you.
Who Can Have Dental Implants?
This is the nice thing about dental implants as they are suitable for just about everyone. You will need to have a full consultation with our implant dentist as we will want to assess your jawbone and we need to know your full medical history. This is to make sure that you aren’t taking any medications that could interfere with treatment and that you don’t have any medical issues that could slow down healing and make treatment less suitable. Provided you have reasonable dental and general health, it’s likely that dental implants could help you. (Learn whether you are a candidate for implants).
Once you have your dental implants it’s important to make sure you follow up with regular checkups and you must keep your dental implants meticulously clean. This is easy to do and we will show you exactly how to clean around your dental implants to keep them strong and healthy. Hopefully you will be able to enjoy your implants for many years or for life.
