Implant-Retained Dentures in Jonesboro
Do you have multiple missing teeth? You have probably heard of dental implants as an effective and reliable tooth replacement option. But did you know that dental implants can work with other types of dentistry to provide you the same great benefits but with more stability and reliability?
Implant-retained and implant-supported dentistry can provide you with the benefits of dental implants without having to replace all of your missing teeth with implants.
Reliable Implant-Retained Dentures
Many people are plagued with ill-fitting dentures. They can cause pain and embarrassing situations and make it difficult to eat. When your dentures do not fit properly, you may acquire sores caused by rubbing or have to limit yourself to certain foods just to make sure that your dentures stay put. Pastes and gels are not a good long-term solution for most people, and dealing with difficult dentures can really decrease your enjoyment of life.
Implant-retained dentures utilize several strategically placed dental implants to hold your denture in place. Even if you suffer from some bone loss, we may still be able to use mini-implants to provide you with implant-retained dentures.
When you choose to have implant dentures, you are making a decision that supports your health because they can help you to retain your remaining bone. Bone retention is important for your health, as well as your appearance.
If you have multiple missing teeth in a row, a traditional bridge may not be an option because it will not provide proper stability. In the past, that meant that you had to have a partial denture. Today, however, we can utilize a combination of a traditional bridge and dental implants to complete your smile.
As with traditional dental implants, implant-supported bridges help you to retain your bone structure while supporting artificial teeth to fill in the gaps in your smile.
Dental Implant Procedures
We place some implants in our Jonesboro dental office. We also work with some of our community’s best oral surgeons to place your implants. Implant placement requires surgery, but most patients tolerate it well and report no problems with healing. Once your have your dental implants, you will need several months to heal and for your bone and implants to stabilize. Dental implants are made of biocompatible metals such as titanium that allow your natural bone and your dental implant to integrate just like your natural teeth.
Once your healing process completes, we will restore your dental implants with tooth-colored dental restorations, leaving you with a beautiful, functional, and stable smile.
