When you have multiple missing teeth, or have lost all of them, then you need replacement to eat and speak again without difficulty. Instead of relying on removable dentures that last only a handful of years, we have a more secure option. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist talks about the benefits of fixed implant dentures.
The Value of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that can last for decades to come, or possibly even an entire lifetime. They prevent the jaw from losing mass and density, a complication that follows tooth loss, so you maintain your facial structure and avoid further tooth loss. They involve inserting a biocompatible titanium post into the jaw, where the body accepts it as natural tooth structure and the jaw bonds with it. Next, an abutment is attached to it and finally, the restoration or prosthetic. In addition to a single missing tooth, we could use them to support fixed and lifelike dentures, ones that never slip when you eat or speak!
Creating Lifelike Prosthetics
The denture itself will be designed based on detailed digital images we take of your smile, ensuring it not only looks natural, but fits comfortably and preserves the overall balance of your bite. This will also restore your ability to smile with confidence and eat your favorite foods again too! We will guide the implant post into the smile with digital technology. We then attach the abutments as we mentioned above, and finally connect this custom set of dentures.
Dental implant dentures offer a host of benefits for our patients. First, they’re very sturdy and never slip, functioning like natural teeth. They also look natural and offer good esthetics for our patients. You never need to remove them for cleaning or soaking, and they can last for a much longer time than removable prosthetics or traditional bridges. You will be able to ensure optimal oral health and a durable, lifelike set of teeth. If you have any questions about how we secure these prosthetics, or if you would like to see if you’re a candidate for a set, then contact our team today to schedule a consultation.
A visit now means we can start the process before your schedule fills up due to holiday events and get-togethers. You can also use your 2022 dental insurance benefits before they expire, the same goes for any health savings account funds too. Let’s start 2023 with a full and stunning smile!
