Implant-Retained Dentures – Odessa, TX
Achieve Your Best Smile with Implant-Retained Dentures
Replacing all of your teeth with dentures is a big decision! You may be nervous thinking about the dentures your parents or grandparents wore in the past, but rest assured that today’s dentures are much different. Designed with both your facial features and skin tone in mind, your team at Boyles General Dentistry has been handcrafting dentures for patients in our own in-house dental laboratory for decades. Combining dentures with dental implants provides an even more reliable fit than ever before. Here’s what you should know about implant-retained dentures.
How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?
Implant-retained dentures rely on the support of a few strategically placed dental implants which are designed to hold the denture in place. This eliminates any movement or slippage that might occur when eating or talking. Patients can rely on a secure fit that provides peace of mind and makes chewing and interacting with others much easier.
Am I A Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?
If you are living with multiple failing teeth, or you’re currently struggling with an ill-fitting denture, you may be a great candidate for implant-retained dentures. Dr. Boyles can determine if you have enough healthy bone left to support dental implants with a thorough examination and some x-rays.
If it’s decided that implant-retained dentures are right for you, our team at Boyles General Dentistry can guide you through the entire process from start to finish at our Odessa dental office.
What’s the Procedure for Completing Implant-Retained Dentures?
Once it’s determined that implant-retained dentures are right for you, Dr. Boyles will place the dental implants during a surgical procedure. Our dentists have been hand crafting dentures in our office for over 40 years, which means you get an exceptional fit and design. Your denture is designed to snap into the implants, which hold your appliance securely in place.
You will love how your denture restores your smile and provides the function you need to enjoy all of your favorite foods again!
What Are the Benefits Of Combining Dentures & Dental Implants?
Besides restoring your smile and your confidence, implant-retained dentures also offer other benefits for our patients. Traditional dentures rely on suction to your jawbone to stay in place, which puts pressure on the bone and gradually causes it to deteriorate.
Dental implants actually work to keep your jawbone stimulated, which promotes bone regrowth and protects against deterioration. Bone regeneration means better support and longevity for your denture.
Because dental implants can potentially last for a lifetime, it means that implant-retained dentures are a smart long-term investment in your oral health.
