An incomplete smile may cause stress, anxiety, and even embarrassment. Implant-supported dentures are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring your confidence.
The solution includes implants that hold the dentures securely and firmly in place, giving the appearance of a whole, healthy smile. And since they are permanent, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of implant-supported dentures for the rest of your life.
At Silver Firs Dental in Mill Creek, Washington, we provide our patients with implant-supported dentures to give them a reliable and solid alternative to dentures, dental bridges, and traditional dental implants.
Implant-supported dentures are a combination between dentures and dental implants. Unlike dentures, this solution is permanent and fixed.
Implant-supported dentures use dental implants to anchor the replacement teeth in place guaranteeing the stability of the denture using two to four implants.
On top of enhanced strength, these dentures improve speech, chewing, and overall oral health. They also reduce gum irritation and provide greater comfort.
Implant-supported dentures provide a comfortable and long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth.
Some of their main benefits include:
What Is the Process for Placing Implant-Supported Dentures?
Next, we will take X-rays to determine your jawbone density and find out if it is sufficient for supporting the implants. We will then take an impression of your teeth along with other measurements.
These details will be sent to the lab so they can fabricate your new set of artificial teeth to our precise specifications.
During the implant process, our dentists will use local anesthesia to numb your gums. Then, they will surgically place up to four small implants under your gum line. These implants will serve as support for your new set of teeth.
Once they are firmly in place, we can snap in your dentures.
