Dental implants and dentures have come a long way since your grandparents' time and are now more comfortable and can be customized for your smile. Not only are there many natural looking options and styles to choose from, implant supported dentures can improve your smile and give you confidence you've been missing.
Dental implants and implant supported dentures are the best and most permanent way to replace your missing teeth. In the past, one of the most serious complications to missing teeth is loss of bone. Adjacent teeth may shift and opposing teeth can drop down or migrate to fill that space.
When you have tooth bone loss or weakening, there may be too little bone to hold a denture in place. Loose fitting dentures make it difficult to eat, talk and smile.
Fortunately, we are now able to replace teeth with implant supported dentures. Our implant supported dentures are secured in place with titanium roots and can be just as strong as your original teeth. There are different options. Implant dentures may be removable, others are permanently fixed.
The beauty of implant supported dentures at Frankel Dentistry, is the procedure is done in house. We take a 3D scan that allows us to place the implant virtually, in the perfect spot. Once the dental image of the implant is created we can create a guide. The guide allows the implant supported dentures to be quickly and precisely placed.
Within three to four months, the implant or implants will fuse to the bone, and the implant crown, tooth, or dentures can be placed.
Our patients truly can't believe how easy this procedure is. If you're interested in learning more about how implant dentures can improve your smile, contact Frankel Dentistry today for a consultation.
