Common Type of Dentures
A custom removable dentures is taken out daily and held into place using a high quality adhesive. This form of tooth replacement requires daily cleaning and maintenance. Most patients with dentures often seek a more stable solution in the future.
A fixed denture, also known as an implant secured denture, is a permanent restoration. Implant secured dentures offer a long lasting, stable solution for tooth loss. This option also allows you to smile, chew, and speak without worry of slippage.
Benefits of Implant Secured Dentures
When you lose your teeth, the remaining teeth shift to fill the empty space your missing teeth left behind. The bone underneath your missing teeth also begins to deteriorate until the point where it can no longer support your remaining teeth.
Implants are designed to replace the natural tooth root, which helps stimulate the jaw bone and prevent further deterioration. Many patients choose implant supported dentures because it offers them a secure and natural looking solution for missing teeth.
With implant supported dentures, you can also look forward to these key benefits:
- Improved gum health
- Prevents bone retention
- Prevents facial sagging due to missing teeth
- A more secure solution
- More convenient
- Less irritation to the gum tissue
Dentures: What to Expect
During your consult, our team will evaluate your smile and recommend the best solution for you. If dentures are right for you, we will discuss if traditional dentures or implant secured dentures are the best option for you.
If you choose implants to secure your dentures, our team of dentists can perform the entire dental implant process in our Pomona dentist office. We will place the necessary amount of implants into the jaw bone. On average, implants take 3-6 months to fully fuse into the jaw bone. During the healing phase, we will place a temporary denture to restore function to your smile. After the healing process is complete, we will take impressions of your teeth to help create your custom dentures.
We will create your custom denture with your specific needs in mind. A beautifully crafted denture will fit comfortably and blend seamlessly with your natural smile.
