What are Implant Dentures?
Implant dentures combine realistic-looking dentures designed to replace teeth in a natural-looking way with dental implant posts that fulfil the same role and functions as tooth roots. Both partial dentures and full dentures can be attached to implants for stability and security. Four to six implant posts are generally needed for full dentures; the correct number of posts needed to support partial dentures will vary from person to person. You can choose between one of the following two options for implant dentures based on your situation:
Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures
Fixed dentures are sometimes called a hybrid prosthesis. Your denture will always stay in your mouth; only your implant dentist in Frisco will be able to remove it. It usually takes more implant posts (around 4 to 6) to support fixed dentures. This tooth replacement option is only available for those who have a sufficient level of jawbone density.
Removable Implant Dentures
These are sometimes called overdentures or Snap-On dentures. The latter name refers to how they snap in and out of place with clips or ball sockets. Removable dentures let you clean every surface of your prosthetic teeth as well as the gums underneath. Fewer implant posts are usually required for this treatment.
The Implant Denture Procedure
To prepare your mouth for implant dentures, damaged or decayed teeth will be removed, tissue grafts may be performed to reverse and bone loss, and periodontal therapy and other services may be employed to make sure you’re at optimal oral health before the procedure. We perform dental implant surgery in-house; once the surgery is complete, the posts will be topped with special caps that will protect them while the implant is joining with the jawbone. The osseointegration process (which is how the implant posts fuse with the bone tissue) takes several months. Once you’ve fully recovered, abutments will be attached to the posts, and we’ll start designing the final denture. We’ll attach the final restoration once it’s arrived from our dental lab.
