If you are currently a denture-wearer, but are experiencing a resorbed ridge, or you are just looking to get the most in the ways of function and appearance, implant-support dentures may be right for you. Implant-retained dentures use a root device that is surgically implanted into the jawbone. Over time, your implant will actually fuse with the jawbone, helping to form a tight bond. By stimulating the area, your dental implants will actually help preserve bone material, a benefit you won’t find with dentures alone.
Usually made of long-lasting titanium, this prosthetic root closely mimics the feel and function of your natural tooth roots. After the root has been inserted, artificial teeth or dentures can be placed atop the implants. This combination provides the best look, feel and function available on the market. Best yet, since implant-support dentures have a high success rate and have been in use for a number of years, the cost has fallen to the point where the procedure is now affordable to most patients.
