Your first dental visit will be a consultation to discuss the dental treatment process. Your dentist can show you models of available options. You can bring up any questions or concerns have about the implant time frame.
For implant surgery, your dentist will drill holes in the jawbone where you want to put your implants. Then they will be inserted and fixed into place with stitches. They must integrate with your jaw bone to be viable. This process might take three months or more for lower teeth but up to six months if situated on the upper set. You can get a temporary tooth replacement option to wear during the healing process.
The permanent dentures are made to mimic your lost teeth. The colour of tooth enamel aims to blend seamlessly with your existing actual teeth. Once your gum health and implant fit have been evaluated, the dentures will be permanently fitted into the implants.
With proper care, these types of dental prosthetics can last anywhere from 10-20 years or longer. Chew and smile confidently with quality dentures that will function for a long time!
Implant-supported dentures not only look and function just like natural teeth, they are also more comfortable than traditional denture sets. These devices allow you to maintain your biting strength while wearing them. In fact, many patients claim that these types of dentures provide an enhanced sense of security when eating or talking with others.
The basic denture is a gum-coloured acrylic base with artificial teeth attached. The fit and comfort depend on your jaw structure, which can be customized for a comfortable fit. Implant-denture hybrids provide greater comfort and security than traditional dentures. This is due to the stability provided by the implants. Thus, patients may feel more confident eating or speaking while wearing an implant-based denture.
There’s no denying that traditional dentures provide relief when eating and chewing food. However, denture wearers will experience bone loss over time. This can lead to many different health problems over time if left untreated or unchecked by dental care providers.
Chewing and eating are natural ways to stimulate new bone growth. When we lose our teeth and use dentures, the forces generated by these actions are not generated through the jaw bone. The lack of stimulation eventually leads to difficulties with bone resorption. The metal in the embedded post attracts bone cells, which then grow and adhere to the implant surface. Over time, this can increase the amount of sufficient bone attachment and help maintain jaw bone volume via the stimulation when chewing.
Dental implants can be a great option for people who want affordable and secure dentures. An implant-supported denture is more expensive than a conventional one. On the other hand, it is a cheaper option than replacing each tooth with an implant or conventional denture repairs.
There are several dental enhancement options to convert your current dentures to implant-supported ones. Your doctor will be able to give recommendations on which would suit your circumstances more.
Option 1: Using a snap-on connector on our traditional dentures
It is by far the most affordable way to upgrade your traditional dentures if you currently have them. You’ll experience a world of difference in comfort and security. In this procedure, two implants are placed in the arch. Denture apparatuses are equipped with snap fasteners so that they can be snapped onto an arch rather than adhered.
Option 2: All-on-four Dental Implants
All-on-four dentures are permanently attached to four implants in the arch. Compared to the snap-on type, this type of implant treatment offers better comfort and support at a reasonable price. Having your denture attached to an implant is very similar to having real teeth, and you won’t have to worry about loose dentures shifting when speaking or eating.
Option 3: Six to eight implants with zirconia dentures
In terms of denture stability, jaw bone preservation, and cost, placing up to 8 implants on each arch would be the next step up, which can then support either a fixed denture or a removable overdenture. By increasing the number of implants, we can then consider getting a zirconia denture, which is heavier than acrylic but lasts longer and does not develop “acrylic mouth,” a funny taste that is sometimes caused by more porous acrylic dentures.
Due to the higher cost of zirconia dentures and the additional surgery time involved when placing more implants, this is the most expensive and invasive option of the three. However, increasing the number of implants also increases the pressure on your jaw bone. This is essential to prevent jaw bone deterioration and offer a better biting and chewing experience.
This alternative to dentures can have a positive impact on general oral health.
- They address the concern of missing teeth while preserving gum tissue and preventing bone loss. The latter is commonly observed in traditional denture wearers.
- They are more stable than dentures without the need for adhesive.
- They provide stronger biting power, which allows you to eat a wider variety of food.
- The snap-on option for dentures allows you to remove them for cleaning. This makes them easier to maintain.
Manduring Dental Centre offers convenient, high-quality oral health care. Implant-retained full dentures will generally cost between $6,200 and $9,500. This will depend on the complexity of the procedures and the cost of the materials used during the treatment process.
