What are Implant Dentures?
Implant dentures differ from traditional dentures because instead of relying on suction to stay in place, these are anchored to small titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gumline. Due to the biocompatibility of dental implants, they can fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, replacing the root structure of missing teeth to offer a strong, stable, and unwavering foundation for your prosthetic to attach to.
Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures
Fixed implant dentures are permanently attached to the dental implants, meaning the only person who can remove the prosthetic is your implant dentist in Tyler. This makes your teeth feel and function like natural because you’ll never need to take them out of your mouth, not even to brush them. Simply take care of them in the same way you would with your natural teeth.
Removable Implant Dentures
Removable implant dentures, also referred to as overdentures, can be taken out of your mouth whenever you want without the help of a professional. Typically, these can be fixed in place with fewer dental implants, making them an ideal option for patients who have experienced jawbone deterioration.
The Implant Denture Process
- During your consultation, our team will capture X-rays of your mouth and speak with you about your smile goals. Based on your desires, we’ll recommend either fixed or removable implant dentures in Tyler for you
- Preparatory Procedures (If Necessary). If you require any preparatory procedures before you can undergo implant surgery, like a sinus lift or bone grafting, these will be done before the next step.
- Implant Placement. Stansbury partners with local, expert oral surgeons to place your dental implants for the best possible results.
- Healing & Abutment Placement. After your implants have been placed, they’ll fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration over the next three to six months. Afterward, we’ll attach small, metal connector pieces called abutments to them.
- Once your permanent denture is crafted, we’ll call you back into the office to attach them to your implants and complete the process!
