Implant Dentures in Southlake
If you are missing several teeth, whether from extractions, injury, severe gum disease, or other causes, implant dentures are a beautiful solution for restoring your smile. Implant dentures are supported by titanium implant posts secured within your jaw. This makes them a permanent solution to your missing teeth without the slippage and movement that is so characteristic of traditional dentures.
What are Implant Dentures?
Implants are made from biocompatible titanium which fuses directly with the bone in your jaw. An oral surgeon will implant the screw-like root into your jawbone and you will be given time to heal. Part of the healing process is an integration of the titanium with your bone tissue, one of the very appealing characteristics of implant dentures. Because the implants fuse with bone tissue, they are longer lasting than other types of dental prosthetics.
Dr. Wright will then fit your specially made dentures to the implants, giving you a whole new set of artificial teeth that look and function like natural teeth. Some implant dentures can be removed for daily cleaning, but you can rest easy knowing that your implants will hold the dentures in place while eating and during conversation, eliminating any embarrassing moments caused by slippage. Other implant dentures can only be removed by your dentist.
What are the Benefits of Denture Implants?
At your appointment, Dr. Wright will address all of the benefits involved in investing in denture implants. Some of these advantages include:
- Dramatically improved chewing ability.
- A boost to your self-confidence. Knowing that your dentures will not slip during the course of a meal or conversation leaves you free to enjoy your socializing without the risk of embarrassment.
- A more youthful appearance. Teeth help to support the structure of your face. If you are missing a significant number of them, the cheeks and lips are no longer supported, giving you a sunken in, older look. Denture implants restore your youthful look.
- A full mouth makeover. If you are missing all of your teeth, implant dentures will give you a full set of beautiful, functional teeth that you’ll look forward to showing off.
