Implant-retained Dentures in Byford
Do you have dentures that are uncomfortable or ill-fitting? Implant-retained dentures may be right for you! Implants provide a much more stable foundation for your dentures, so you can eat and speak with confidence. At Byford Smiles, we offer implant-retained dentures as a way to improve both the function and appearance of your smile.
The Stability of Implant-retained Dentures Makes Chewing and Speaking Easy
Implant-retained dentures are a set of dentures that are attached to the jaw bone by implants. Two to four strategically placed dental implants secure the dentures in place. An implant-retained denture is functionally stable but still easy to remove and clean. Our Byford Smiles dentists are trained and skilled to give you the stability and durability of implant-retained dentures to help you perform oral functions with ease and confidence.
Advantages of Implant-retained Dentures
A significant advantage of implant-retained dentures is that they look and feel a lot like your real teeth. If you're self-conscious about wearing dentures, this dental treatment offers a more natural look and feel. Implant-retained dentures are also much more comfortable to wear.
Implant-retained dentures are anchored directly to your jaw bone via dental implants. You will not have to worry about them falling out or moving in your mouth. This stability also makes them function like naturally healthy teeth and improves your bite force.
Prevents Bone Loss
Implants are usually made of titanium, which bonds with the bone tissue. This bond stimulates bone growth and prevents bone loss. Implant-retained dentures preserve the health and shape of your jaw bone and maintain your facial structure.
Why Our Patients Love Byford Smiles
Implant-retained dentures are becoming increasingly popular, but not everyone is a good candidate. You must have adequate bone density and healthy gums for the implants to be fitted properly into your jaw. You should also be free of systemic health issues that might hinder dental implant success.
Please schedule a consultation for dental implants at Byford Smiles to determine if implant-retained dentures are suitable for you. Our experienced team of dentists can evaluate if implant-retained dentures are suitable for you.
Implant-supported dentures are like traditional dentures. They are composed of a set of artificial teeth attached to a gum-coloured base. The dentures are removable to allow cleaning and are clipped onto the implants afterwards. The difference is that an implant-retained denture attaches to dental implants instead of simply resting on top of the gums. It has small attachments on the bottom that “snap” onto implants that were surgically inserted into the jaw.
The implants act as a substitute for your natural tooth roots and as an anchor for replacement teeth for a more stable denture. A traditional denture can sometimes be modified to function as an implant-retained overdenture. The vast majority of the time, however, a new prosthesis must be designed and manufactured.
Dental implants are generally not covered by Medicare or health funds. If your health fund does not cover dental implants, you may still be able to receive financial assistance if you have a high level of extras cover. It would be advisable to check this with your health fund provider for more accurate information on what is included in your insurance policy.
