The advantages of implant-retained dentures
If you live in Livermore, Pleasanton, or East Dublin, California, and are dealing with most or all of your natural teeth missing, you may be unhappy with the idea of moving forward with traditional full dentures. For many patients, a more durable and better-functioning option is available: implant-retained dentures. Dr. Kimberly King of Kitty Hawk Dental Care is excited to offer implant-retained dentures that look real and natural while functioning at their best, thanks to the foundation set up for support.
What are implant-retained dentures?
Implant-retained dentures are special dental appliances that use several dental implants along the dental arch that permanently attach to the upper or lower jaw through osseointegration. That is the process of jawbone growth that occurs to hold the implants in place. Then, false teeth snap into place with the implants to provide better stability and function. Patients with implant-retained dentures can enjoy their favorite foods without worrying about loose or lost false teeth.
What are the benefits of implant-retained dentures?
When patients consult with Dr. King and her team at Kitty Hawk Dental Care about dental restorations such as implant-retained dentures, they find that they have many benefits compared to alternative treatments such as traditional false teeth. Implant-retained dentures:
- Do not shift or move when eating or speaking
- Maintain bone and avoid natural jawbone resorption
- Look and feel more like natural teeth
- Provide long-term restoration of all the missing teeth in the dental arch
- Require little to no extra care when compared to conventional appliances
- Do not require messy denture adhesives or specialized attention
- Are natural-looking and do not stand out as obvious “false teeth”
