Implant-Retained Dentures in Jonesboro
Do you want to replace 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?
Dr. Anthony Baretls is pleased to offer implant-retained and implant-supported dentistry at our Jonesboro dental office. This allows our patients to enjoy the benefits of teeth that function well without getting a full set of implants.
Reliable Implant-Retained Dentures
Ill-fitting dentures are a problem that plagues millions of people. Dentures that are loose or don’t fit well can cause soreness and irritation and make it challenging to eat healthy, nutritious foods. Speaking clearly and confidently can be a challenge, and loose dentures that shift and move lead to awkward and embarrassing accidents around others. In short, ill-fitting dentures can diminish your enjoyment and quality of life.
But there is a stable, secure solution to the problem of shifting dentures. Our Jonesboro dentist places several dental implants at strategic points along your jaw, and your dentures are customized to attach to the implants. Implant-retained dentures do away with all the common problems denture-wearers face, and they are the closest we can get to real teeth.
Even if you have been told in the past that you suffer from jawbone bone loss and can’t get implants, Dr. Bartels may be able to use mini-implants to provide you with the function and stability you need. Choosing implant dentures also helps support your oral health because it promotes bone regeneration in your jaw to keep it strong and healthy and help you maintain a full, youthful facial 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 in the 72401 Area
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 you 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 materials 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.
