How Do Implant Dentures Work?
Traditional dentures are made from an impression of your mouth to ensure a comfortable fit. They are held in place using suction or an adhesive. Implant dentures are different because dental implants anchor them to your jawbone. This allows you to enjoy unmatched security and stability while regaining as much as 70% of your biting force. They look and feel natural, so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Am I A Candidate for Implant Dentures?
If you are tired of living with the complications of traditional dentures or want to enjoy a long-lasting solution, you may be a candidate for implant dentures in Brookfield. We'll perform a comprehensive consultation to assess your oral health and structures. Besides a visual exam, a CT scan may also be taken to ensure your jawbone can support the posts. You must also be free of certain medical conditions, like those that impact the body’s ability to heal or fight infections.
The Implant Dentures Procedure
The images from your consultation will be used to pinpoint the precise location for your implant posts. On average, you can expect 4 posts to be surgically placed into your jawbone. Your gum tissue is opened to expose your bone to allow small holes to be placed in it. This is performed while you are under sedation with anesthesia to ensure your comfort.
Your implant posts are placed into the holes, and special abutments are connected to them. Over the next several weeks, your jawbone will fuse to the posts because they stimulate new bone growth. This not only preserves your jawbone’s density but also allows your implant posts to remain in place forever with the right aftercare.
