Why Choose Greeley Complete Dentistry for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

Traditionally, full and partial dentures simply sit on top of the gums and rely on the surrounding teeth and bone to remain in place. An implant denture, however, is secured directly in the jawbone using just a few prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants in Greeley). This makes implant dentures much more secure than their traditional counterparts.

Depending on your unique circumstances, we may recommend that you receive one of the following types of implant dentures:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

These are permanently attached to the dental implants that support them; they can only be removed by a dental professional. It typically takes 4 – 6 implants to secure a permanent denture in place, which means you can enjoy long-term stability and strength, as well as the convenience of not having to remove your teeth to clean them.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures are secured via ball- or bar-shaped attachments. They typically require fewer dental implants than permanent dentures, which makes them a good choice for patients who have lost some bone mass in their jaw. In some cases, we can retrofit a patient’s existing denture to work as a removable implant denture.

The Implant Denture Procedure

Everything starts with a consultation with your implant dentist in Greeley. They’ll examine your mouth, take X-rays, and use this information to plan your treatment. Sometime after your consultation, you will undergo implant placement surgery.

Many dental offices have to refer their patients to a specialist to have this done, but our team has the training and expertise to perform the entire dental implant procedure in-house. Dr. Smith has taken countless hours of advanced training specifically dedicated to placing and restoring dental implants, meaning you’ll be able to get everything you need right here at home.

Once your implants have been placed into your jaw, your jawbone and mouth will be given time to heal over the course of a few months, and eventually, you’ll return to our dental office to receive your final restoration.

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?

People who are missing most or all of their teeth can greatly benefit from implant dentures. Typically, a patient only needs good oral health and a strong enough jawbone to support the implants to be a qualified candidate. Any pre-existing dental problems like gum disease must be taken care of first before the implant surgery. And, if the jawbone is too thin or brittle to support implants as is, a patient may need to undergo a bone grafting procedure.
