Implant-Retained Dentures – Baytown, TX
Ditch the Denture Adhesive & Improve Your Quality of Life
Many patients find themselves unsatisfied with their traditional dentures because they’re not as stable and secure as they would have hoped. If you find yourself getting frustrated with messy denture adhesive or wanting to improve your smile by replacing an arch of missing teeth, implant-retained dentures in Baytown are a great option for you. To learn more about this advanced tooth replacement method, including whether you’re a good candidate, don’t hesitate to contact our office to schedule a consultation today.
How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?
While traditional dentures are a great choice for some patients, we understand that they’re not built for everybody’s lifestyle, which is why we also offer implant-retained dentures. By securing your prosthetic to anywhere from four to eight dental implants that we place below the gumline, we’re able to eliminate reliance on adhesive and natural suction to provide your replacement teeth with stability. The implants fuse with your jawbone through a natural process called osseointegration, replacing the missing roots of your teeth and making sure that your denture never slips or shifts.
Am I A Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?
The best candidates for implant-retained dentures in Baytown are patients who have some of the following features or traits:
- Are missing an entire arch of teeth.
- Have a dense and strong enough jawbone to support the dental implants.
- Don’t have oral health problems that could cause healing complications, such as gum disease.
- Have good physical health, including not having any medical conditions that impact their immune system.
- Don’t smoke.
Even if you’re not an “ideal candidate” from the start, there are several ways to get you there, including gum disease treatment and preparatory procedures, such as bone grafts. That’s why the best way to find out whether you’re truly a good candidate for this procedure is to visit us for a consultation.
