Implant Dentures

How implant-supported dentures keep Pflugerville, TX smiles stable

Just imagine a lovely picnic in the park, or evening out at your favorite Pflugerville, TX restaurant. All is well, until dinner is served. Suddenly, you find yourself faced with crusty artisan bread, corn on the cob, or thick steak and wondering… Will you be able to eat it without pain, will your dentures stay in place? Most of all, how can you avoid this embarrassing, uncomfortable situation? The answer is implant-supported dentures (overdentures) from Elite Smiles of Pflugerville.

About dental implants

An implant is a small device made of titanium, usually similar in size to a tooth root. It is placed in the jawbone with a minor oral surgery. Over the next few weeks or months, the bone will attach itself to the implant in a process known as osseointegration. Essentially, a dental implant is an artificial tooth roots, and the human body accepts it as if it were natural.

The most obvious reason that patients choose dental implants is ultimate stability of replacement teeth. No matter what you eat, you won’t need to worry about them slipping because they are attached to the bone. Furthermore, they help preserve bone health. Chewing, or any other pressure applied to teeth is transferred to the root or implant, and then on to the jawbone. When this stimulation is lacking, the bone starts resorbing (shrinking).

What are implant supported dentures?

Implants are extremely versatile, because they do not directly replace teeth. Instead, they replace the roots and can support many different types of restorations – including your own denture. Rather than topping the implant with a porcelain crown or bridge, we add a small attachment. Your dentures are retrofitted with corresponding attachments, allowing them to snap in place over the implants. Typically, just a few implants are needed to support a full denture.

The benefits include:

  • End discomfort and denture sores caused by loose appliances
  • Eat anything you want, with confidence
  • No more messy denture adhesive
  • Preserve bone tissue
  • You can still remove your dentures for ease of cleaning
