The Benefits Of Dental Implant Dentures

livonia implant denturesWhen you have substantial tooth loss, you may need a set of dentures. But if you want an option that can last for more than five years, possibly decades or a lifetime instead, we can help with dental implants. Using multiple posts, your Livonia, MI dentist can offer secure and lifelike options, sometimes even in one visit!

Supporting Dentures with Implant Posts

Receiving dentures can help restore function and beauty to your smile again. While effective, removable dentures can sometimes shift when you eat and speak, slipping from position and causing embarrassment. They also need to be taken out for soaking and cleaning, and will need to be replaced every five to ten years as the shape of your jaw ridge changes. However, if we secure a full prosthetic with multiple dental implant posts, this can provide tooth replacement that will last for decades to come, and possibly even an entire lifetime!

Benefits for Your Oral Health

Dental implant posts are made from titanium, which is biocompatible. This means they are accepted as new roots and bond with the jawbone tissue. This prevents the changes to the jaw ridge, stimulating the growth of jawbone tissue. You avoid further tooth loss, maintain your youthful features, and your prosthetic can last much longer. You can also eat your favorite foods again and smile with confidence. The prosthetic will also never need to be removed for cleaning and soaking, and can never skip when you eat or speak too.

Qualifying for Treatment

To begin, we will first take a close look at your smile with advanced imaging technology. We want to assess the extent to your tooth loss, and also the strength of your jawbone. If you have lost mass and density due to untreated tooth loss, we could build up the structure with grafting and sinus lifts, or we could use options like All-On-Four or Mini Implants, which can support a full prosthetic with less jawbone structure. No matter what state your smile is in, we can find a way to secure a complete set of dentures that are lifelike, secure, and ready to restore function and beauty to your smile again.
