If you have missing teeth and are considering dental implants for dentures, our dentists can help determine if implant-supported dentures in Fayetteville may be a treatment option for you.
Partial denture implants are replacements for missing teeth, helping you regain the ability to enjoy your favorite foods and improving the appearance of your smile. Implant dentures are secured to dental implants that are inserted into your jaw, unlike traditional dentures that rest on your gums. These affordable quality implant-supported dentures can be used as a replacement for teeth in your upper or lower jaws, and they can be fixed or removable.
The process for getting implant-supported dentures begins with scheduling a consultation with our dentists. After evaluating the health of your teeth and gums, your dentist will discuss the denture options available to you.
If your dentist determines that denture implants are a good option for you, the implants will be placed into your jaw during your next visit to our office. Sometimes, only two implants are required to secure the denture, but some patients may require four or more implants.
You can expect to wait several months before your next procedure; this period of time allows enough time for the implants to integrate with your jawbone. During your next appointment, the dentist will expose the tops of the implants. This is a small incision that takes about one to two weeks to heal. Once the area has healed, you’ll receive your final denture placement.
Overall, the entire process takes between five and seven months. Some patients may be candidates for our newer one-step process, which lets you receive your new dentures in much less time.
Since affordable quality implant-supported dentures are designed to be long-lasting, they are an economical way to restore your smile and improve your oral health. The type of denture you receive and the number of dental implants you need are factors that influence the cost of denture implants.
Many of our patients choose dental implant dentures because they offer a secure fit, and there’s no risk of them shifting or slipping out of place. In addition to increased stability, these dentures are designed to look just like your natural teeth, and they eliminate the need for adhesives.
If you receive removable dentures, you can take them out for easy cleaning. Fixed dentures are brushed daily, just like you would care for your natural teeth. Scheduling regular dental exams is important as well, so your dentist can ensure that your implant-supported dentures are fitting comfortably and examine your gum tissue.
Compared to other types of restorations, implant-retained dentures reduce bone loss since the dental implants integrate with your jawbone. Their stability and secure fit can also boost your confidence while speaking and eating, and you’re free to enjoy all of your favorite foods.
