What Are Implant Dentures?
Rather than sitting atop your gums, implant dentures are secured onto an average of four to six dental implants – small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jaw. Titanium’s biocompatible properties encourage the surrounding bone and tissues to grow around the implants. This fusion, called osseointegration, gives us a sturdy foundation to attach a personalized denture that will remain firmly in place. No more awkward slippage!
Depending on your preferences and oral health needs, we may recommend one of the two kinds of implant dentures:
Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures
A “permanent” implant denture is attached to the tops of your implants via metal connectors called abutments. Once placed, only an implant dentist in Boerne can remove it. You can brush and floss this denture like real teeth, so you might eventually forget that you even lost any teeth at all!
Removable Implant Dentures
If you’re already used to taking out dentures to clean them, you can choose a removable implant denture. This prosthetic can be secured onto ball sockets or clips so that you can remove it whenever you like.
The Implant Denture Process
Getting an implant denture takes longer than getting a traditional denture, but you’ll find that this solution is worth waiting for. After all, implant dentures can last exponentially longer than traditional ones.
Once we’ve verified that you’re eligible for implant dentures, we’ll surgically place the implant posts in your jawbone. The posts will fuse to the bone over the next three to six months. During this period, you may or may not receive a temporary denture. After osseointegration is complete, you’ll have your custom-made denture fitted and placed.
Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?
Because dental implants in Boerne are so versatile, most patients suffering from tooth loss make good candidates. Typically, all you need is:
- Healthy gums and adequate jawbone density
- Good enough overall health to undergo a minor surgical procedure
- Dedication to good oral hygiene
If you don’t qualify at first, our dentists might still be able to place an implant denture. For example, patients with bone loss in the jaw may need to undergo a bone graft before implant surgery. We’ll do everything we can to ensure your new smile has a healthy foundation!
