Implant-Supported Dentures in Modesto, CA

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dentures have long been a popular solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring smiles. However, traditional dentures may have challenges such as discomfort, slippage, and difficulty eating and speaking. Fortunately, advancements in dental technology have led to the development of implant-supported dentures, a revolutionary solution that offers stability, comfort, and a confident smile. Implant-supported dentures, also known as overdentures or implant-retained dentures, are a type of dental prosthetic that combines the stability of dental implants with the convenience of dentures. Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums, implant-supported dentures are securely attached to dental implants anchored in the jawbone, providing a stable and comfortable foundation for the replacement teeth.

The Advantages of Implant-Supported Dentures

Enhanced Stability

Implant-supported dentures offer unmatched stability, preventing slippage or movement while eating or speaking. This ensures that you can enjoy your favorite foods and speak with confidence.

Improved Comfort

Traditional dentures can sometimes cause sore spots or discomfort due to pressure on the gums. Implant-supported dentures eliminate this issue by distributing the biting and chewing forces to the implants, making them more comfortable to wear.

Restored Functionality

With implant-supported dentures, you can regain the functionality of your natural teeth. You can chew more effectively, leading to better digestion and improved nutrition.

Preserves Bone Health

Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss that occurs with traditional dentures. This helps maintain facial structure and avoid the sunken appearance often associated with tooth loss.

Improved Confidence

Implant-supported dentures eliminate the fear of dentures slipping or falling out, providing you with the confidence to smile, speak, and interact with others without worry.

The Implant-Supported Denture Procedure

During the initial consultation, your dentist will assess your oral health, determine if you are a suitable candidate for implant-supported dentures, and create a personalized treatment plan. The dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone under local anesthesia. Over several months, the implants will fuse with the bone through osseointegration, providing a stable base for the denture.

Once the implants have integrated with the jawbone, abutments are attached to the implants. The abutments are small connectors that hold the denture in place. Impressions of your mouth are taken to create a custom-made denture that will fit securely over the abutments. The final step involves attaching the denture to the abutments. The denture will be securely fixed, providing a stable and functional smile.

Remember, with implant-supported dentures, and you can regain the joy of eating, speaking, and smiling confidently, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest with a complete and beautiful smile.
