Implant-supported restorations for the smile
- Posted on: Nov 15 2021
With tooth loss comes many decisions, including the choice you make to replace your missing teeth. For many patients in the Golden, Colorado area, choosing a long-lasting, reliable option for replacing teeth is always a top priority. Drs. Nancy Gill, Dallas Kenson, and Evelyn Qi of Golden Dental Solutions find that many patients who need to replace all their teeth are less likely to consider conventional full dentures and instead choose solutions such as implant-retained dentures instead.
What are implant-retained dentures?
Our dentists describe implant-retained dentures are restorations that are more conservative than a traditional denture and are held in place with the use of four dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are sometimes used with a dental crown to replace a single tooth. However, several implants placed along the dental arch can be used as a foundation for a denture. Instead of using dental adhesives to keep a full denture in place, patients can use the implants instead for strength and durability. Additionally, the dentures made for placement over the implants are smaller and easier to adjust to.
Why choose implant-supported denture?
Many patients choose this option when they are missing all the teeth in the dental arch and are in a position where they would prefer not to deal with traditional full dentures. Many patient also love the idea of adjusting to their dentures faster, as the dentures made for implants do not cover the upper or lower portions of the mouth. Additionally, with proper care, implants will last a lifetime and provide the stability patients need to enjoy all their favorite foods!
