Enjoy Ultimate Smile Stability With Implant Retained Dentures In Etobicoke ON
Here at Stonegate Denture in Etobicoke, ON, we take pride in providing individualized care and treatment. We offer several different options including implant-retained dentures, which closely mimic the natural oral anatomy by replacing tooth roots.
About Dental Implants
You have probably heard mention of replacing teeth with dental implants. However, implants do not directly replace teeth. Instead, they are prosthetic tooth roots, usually made of high strength, non-allergenic titanium. Like natural roots, they are firmly seated in the bone, creating a solid foundation for teeth. They also help prevent jaw bone loss (resorption) that typically follows tooth loss.
What Are Implant Retained Dentures?
If you have problems with loose dentures, find it difficult to eat, or miss the natural feeling of your own teeth, then implant-retained dentures may be a great solution. The implant-retained dentures are partial or complete dentures that snap securely over implants, which provide a stable fit and improved functions. Often, a complete implant retained denture can be stabilized with two or more implants. The implant-retained removable dentures can be removed from the implants for cleaning.
Your denturist will work closely with a qualified oral surgeon for a seamless experience and excellent result. The benefits of implant-retained dentures include:
Optimal chewing efficiency
Prevention of jaw bone shrinkage in the area of the implant
Eat anything you want without worry
No risk of slipping or loose dentures
What To Expect
The first step is a complimentary consultation during which we will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants and discuss your options. Most people who are healthy enough for very minor surgery are potential implant candidates.
The process involves several phases, with cooperation between your denturist and the oral surgeon. The implant placement surgery is performed by a qualified oral surgeon. For patients with severe bone loss, the surgeon may need to perform a bone graft prior to placing implants. Your denturist will take impressions and handcraft natural-looking dentures, specially designed to fit over the implants.
