Implant Supported Dentures
When it comes to securing your dentures, the most preferred method is using dental implants. Dental implants have revolutionized the way we replace missing teeth, with an unrivaled ability to stabilize full dentures. Sunrise Dental and Implant Center is proud to offer implant supported dentures, or overdentures, at our family-centered practice in Fairfield.
Implant supported dentures give patients a smile replacement that looks, feels and functions most like their natural teeth. If you are interested in securing either your current dentures or future dentures with dental implants, we are happy to discuss the details of the process as well as tell you about the significant advantages that implant retained dentures can offer.
Implant supported dentures typically involve a series of dental implants or mini-implants. The number of implants needed is determined based on the number of teeth you are replacing, their location in your mouth as well as the type of implant denture you are choosing.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone. These biocompatible posts fuse to the jawbone over time, through a process called osseointegration. They can then become strong enough to act as your artificial tooth root, which offers significant advantages in terms of how your dentures fit and function as well as how your jawbone structure and lower face shape are preserved. Without a tooth root to stimulate it, the jaw bone will shrink or atrophy over time. However, using dental implants to secure your dentures can help prevent jawbone deterioration and the premature facial aging that often results.
Removable Implant Dentures
At Sunrise Dental and Implant Center, we have a reputable team of dental professionals who specialize in teeth replacement. When it comes to replacing a full arch of upper and/or lower teeth, we proudly offer a number of valued and advanced treatment options, including the top-ranked method of implant-supported dentures.
Dentures can be attached to dental implants in a few different ways. Our denture experts will carefully explain the unique functions, complexities and costs of each option to help you make the best decision. At Sunrise Dental and Implant Center, we are pleased to offer a removable implant denture option. Using this method, your dentures can be anchored to dental implants using locator attachments, which enables your dentures to “snap on” to your implants with the help of an o-ring attachment. This type of overdenture is not only comfortable and stable to wear, but also allows you to easily remove your dentures to clean them.
Never underestimate the value of a beautiful and secure set of teeth. At Sunrise Dental and Implant Center, we proudly offer denture options that help patients regain full confidence in their smile. Our custom implant supported dentures will allow you to speak, laugh and eat without worry. Contact our Fairfield dental practice today to learn more about removable implant dentures.
