Missing most or all of your teeth makes eating, speaking, and smiling with confidence incredibly difficult.
Implant-supported dentures are anchored directly to the jawbone so you can eat any foods you want, speak clearly, and feel proud to smile.
So what makes implant-supported dentures so great?
Traditional dentures make enunciation difficult and limit you to foods that are soft or cut into small pieces. Implant-supported dentures let you speak clearly and enjoy all foods.
Jawbone recession follows tooth loss. Implant-supported dentures are artificial tooth roots that continuously provide the stimulation necessary to stop bone recession.
So how do implants secure your dentures?
More than 36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth. However, there is a reported 95.5% success rate among those who have chosen to rebuild their smiles with dental implants.*
See how implant-supported dentures can transform your smile...
The cost of dentures varies greatly. Traditional dentures can cost from $300 to $5,000. Meanwhile, traditional dentures require ongoing maintenance to accommodate changes in the jaw due to bone recession, and remain prone to uncomfortable shifting. Implant-supported dentures cost more, but for most patients, the benefits justify the added expense. Implant-supported dentures require an additional average cost of about $1,600 to $2,200 per implant. However, they may never need adjustments and will provide far better comfort and functionality.
Let's look at how implants and dentures work together...
Receiving implant-supported dentures typically requires two phases.
Your dental implants will be surgically placed in the jaw. Typically, it will take about three to six months for the implants to become integrated.
The doctor will take impressions of your bite. These will be sent out to a lab to create your custom dentures.
Your doctor will attach your denture to your implants, and you can immediately begin experiencing the benefits of a fully restored smile.
At this time, the doctor can also address any issues with comfort or fit to provide you with the best possible results.
