What You Should Know About Implant Dentures
Most of us know about dentures. These dental appliances can be a lifesaver for patients who have lost their natural teeth. But traditional dentures aren’t for everyone. Many denture wearers experience problems with loose-fitting plates that slip out of place frequently. For those patients, Dr. Robertson offers the alternative of implant dentures. This alternative to regular dentures allows patients to avoid all the problems of loose-fitting plates.
The Procedure Involved in Implant Dentures
Before beginning the implant denture procedure, Dr. Robertson sedates the patient. After that, he will implant two titanium screws into the upper jaw. Next, Dr. Robertson will connect the exposed parts of the implants with a small bar, then repeat that procedure for the lower jaw.
This process, known as Osseointegration, allows the bones to grow slowly over time into the grooves of the implant. The result is a strong, permanent hold. The connecting bars will hold dentures in place, allowing the patient to engage in talking, heavy chewing, or any other activity enjoyed by people with natural teeth. This process is also a great choice for people who are missing teeth.
