We know dental implants provide a strong and esthetically pleasing replacement for missing teeth, but what about patients missing all of their teeth? As a breakthrough alternative to traditional dentures, we offer many tooth-loss patients implant-retained dentures. To preserve your smile’s appearance and health, we can provide a more comprehensive tooth-loss solution by stabilizing your dentures with dental implants.
How Will My Implant Dentures Work?
Traditional dentures, which span an entire dental ridge, require the use of adhesives and may slip occasionally. By contrast, implant dentures are attached to a series of dental implant posts, helping you avoid the risk of slippage when enjoying a meal or engaged in conversation. The implant-retained dentures will look and function like natural teeth, including the stability that roots grant your healthy, natural teeth, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence and ease.
How Do I Care for My Implant-Retained Dentures?
- As with natural teeth, your implant dentures will require thorough cleaning. You will need to obtain a denture brush and non-abrasive toothpaste to clean them.
- If you can, try to find the time to remove and clean your dentures following every meal. In addition, always brush your implant dentures at least before bed. Plaque buildup can form on your implant dentures, causing stains and risking your dental health.
- Finally, soak your dentures each night in a recommended denture solution.
