Losing your teeth shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a good laugh with your peers, being too cautious of the people around you when speaking, or chewing your favorite food without fear of hurting your gums. Bellissima Dental Boutique can help you regain the healthy smile you once had by installing implant-supported dentures.
Implant-supported dentures are the more innovative substitutes for traditional dentures used to improve dentition flaws due to tooth loss. They are the ideal solution for replacing missing teeth. Instead of resting directly on the gums, implants attach the denture to the jawbone. This makes them more stable, which in turn, provides a more natural look and smile.
Implant-supported dentures are the ideal solution to your upper and lower teeth loss problem. Using regular dentures causes increased load on the gums, resulting in a depression that becomes apparent over time. In addition, your facial features may become less natural because the jawbone tends to wear away after prolonged tooth loss.
Implant-supported dentures make all these more natural because they are fastened to the jawbone and provide the stability needed to maintain your facial structures and smile more confidently.
After tooth loss or installing the traditional denture, there’s a long list of food you cannot consume. You may even have to have special meal reservations during festivities and family gatherings because of your limited food choices. Installing implant-supported dentures gives you another chance to have a nice time with your family and friends.
Implant-supported dentures look, feel and function like actual teeth. They are made from acrylic materials that have been customized specially for your mouth, teeth structure, and in some cases, color. Because they fit right in and are super stable, you feel like you never lost teeth.
Having multiple occurrences of your traditional dentures falling out of your mouth can be embarrassing and discomforting. Implant-supported dentures are fastened to the jaw, making them less likely to rock your gums and cause pain. You do not have to worry about certain food substances or your biting power dislodging your dentures when they are implant-supported.
You are required to replace your traditional dentures every five years, or in some cases, seven. It’s a totally different scenario with implant-supported dentures. They last decades and are simple to clean — daily brushing and flossing will do. Traditional dentures cleaning routines are very detailed; it involves removal, cleaning, sterilizing and scrubbing off remnants of adhesives and food before they are fitted back.
Our service delivery process is designed to make you smile in the shortest time possible, say five simple steps. You:
You need implant-supported dentures when most of your teeth are missing or have a few missing teeth in several places.
Yes, they are. There’s the fixed and removable option, and the one you get depends on our final evaluation of your medical records. In some cases, you get to pick your preferred choice.
Implant-supported dentures are generally made up of two parts, the overdenture and dental implants. The overdenture typically lasts 15 to 20 years, while dental implants do not need any replacement once installed.
Most of our patients start to adjust to implant-supported dentures pretty quickly — some within a week. However, they take several weeks and months to heal and integrate fully into your jawbone.
