Implant DenturesA conventional denture or a simple denture sits on the patient’s gums. After a time, your gums shrink or recede. Resulting in your denture moving every time you eat, talk, or even open your mouth. That is why we recommend implant dentures.
As your fit changes, traditional dentures should be relined or rebased regularly. For patients who are suffering from these resorbed ridges, implant assisted dentures are an ideal solution. Implants improve fit and function. Although the initial cost is slightly higher the overall advantage is significantly more over the long term. Patients who never had dentures and need their teeth extracted are also good candidates for implant-assisted dentures.
Implant-assisted dentures in the upper jaw can be designed so the roof of your mouth is not covered. Resulting in considerably reducing bulk. Not covering the roof of your mouth is particularly helpful for patients who have a sensitive gag reflex. This is not an option with traditional simple dentures.
Dr. Dhawan will fabricate dentures with different kinds of attachments per the need of the patient. With help of the latest technology, we can plan the correct number, angulation of implants needed and then fabricate a precise fitting denture to fit all your needs. We would love to answer your questions.
