Losing many or all of your teeth can have a drastic impact on your overall quality of life and is a reality for over 35 million American adults. The good news is that with the recent advancements made in dentistry, we can replace your missing teeth with the closest solution to your natural teeth. They look, feel, and even function almost identically to your home-grown pearly whites and restore your ability to complete basic daily tasks like chewing and speaking with complete ease. That way, you can smile and laugh with complete confidence that the only thing people will be focusing on is your beautiful-looking teeth. To learn if you can benefit from implant-retained dentures in Coppell, schedule a consultation at Sandy Lake Dental & Orthodontics.
Just like traditional dentures, ones that are retained by implants are have a gum-colored acrylic base with natural-looking prosthetic teeth attached. These are typically made from materials such as porcelain or ceramic and mimic the appearance of your natural teeth. Implant-retained dentures have a smaller gum-base than regular restorations because they don’t rely on suction to stay securely in place.
Once your implants have been surgically placed, your gums have healed, and the posts have fused with your jawbone, our dentists will secure your restoration. Because they’ll be attached to a solid foundation, you’ll be able to eat and speak without worrying about them shifting or slipping in your mouth.
If you had traditional dentures and they didn’t suit your lifestyle, you may be a good candidate for dental implants in Coppell. We like to ensure that our patients have good oral and overall health so they can recover from the surgery with minimal complications or risks. To find out if it’s the right choice for you, visit us for a consultation. We’ll conduct a visual examination of your mouth and take images of your facial structure to determine whether you need preparatory procedures such as a bone graft or gum disease therapy.
Using the images that we captured during your consultation, we’ll determine what areas of your jawbone are best suited to support your dental implants. After surgically placing your posts, we’ll temporarily fit you with a denture so you won’t have to go without teeth while your gums are healing. After the posts have naturally fused with your jawbone, we’ll place your permanent dentures on the them so you have a complete and revitalized set of pearly whites.
With dental implant posts, patients can enjoy countless additional benefits compared to traditional dentures, such as:
