Implant-Retained Dentures – Millersville, MD

Secure Your Denture with Dental Implants

No one ever expects to lose all their natural teeth in one or both arches, but it’s a reality for over 36 million Americans. A traditional denture is the most conventional solution to replace missing teeth. While they have undergone several advancements over the years, they will always have their limitations. As an alternative, many patients are turning to implant-retained dentures in Severna Park. You can enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth using an option that can last for a lifetime. We can handle the entire process in-office for your convenience and comfort.

How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?

A traditional denture is made from an impression of your mouth to recreate the teeth you’ve lost. It’s held in place using suction or an adhesive. Although they have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, they are more realistic than ever, but they still have their disadvantages. Stabilizing your denture with dental implants in Severna Park resolves many of the common complaints.

A dental implant replaces the entire structure of a tooth, including the root. A titanium implant post is surgically placed into the jawbone to act as a new root. Your jawbone fuses to the post through a process called osseointegration. Once your jawbone has healed, an abutment is placed onto the post to connect your denture. In most cases, 4 to 8 implant posts are used to secure your denture to your jawbone.

Am I a Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?

If you’ve lost all your natural teeth in 1 or both arches and dentures didn’t give you the results you wanted, you might be a candidate for dental implants. Generally, if you have good oral and overall health, you can undergo the placement surgery; however, you’ll still need a thorough consultation with your implant dentist.

Besides a visual examination, you’ll also need a CT scan to assess your oral structures. Your lifestyle habits are also discussed to ensure there are minimal risk factors for complications. Based on the results of the consultation, you might need additional procedures before moving forward, like periodontal therapy, bone grafting, or a sinus lift. Although it adds another step to your treatment plan, it’s necessary to ensure the long-term success of your new smile.
