Implant-Supported Dentures Old Bridge, NJ
Are you looking for a comprehensive solution to replace multiple missing teeth? Implant-supported dentures from Empire Dental Group could be the answer you've been searching for. Unlike traditional dentures that sit atop your gums, implant-supported dentures offer a more natural look and feel, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest while confidently flashing your beautiful smile.
The Beauty of Implant-Supported Dentures
A Natural Appearance: Implant-supported dentures closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, which can sometimes look artificial, implant-supported dentures seamlessly blend with your existing teeth, enhancing your overall facial aesthetics.
Enhanced Functionality: One of the key advantages of implant-supported dentures is their superior functionality. Traditional dentures may slip or move while eating or speaking, causing discomfort and embarrassment. With implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy a more natural chewing experience, making it easier to savor your favorite foods and aiding in better digestion.
The Implant-Supported Denture Process
The journey to a stunning smile with implant-supported dentures typically involves several key steps:
1. Extractions and Bone Grafts: In some cases, tooth extractions and bone grafts may be necessary to ensure a stable foundation for your dental implants. Dr. Pavlushkin will assess your unique situation and recommend these procedures if needed.
2. Implant Placement: Dental implants, small titanium posts, are surgically implanted into your jawbone. These serve as sturdy anchors for your dentures.
3. Abutment Placement: After your implants have healed and fused with your jawbone, abutments are attached to connect your dentures securely to the implants.
4. Denture Fitting: While your permanent custom dentures are being crafted in a dental lab, you will be provided with temporary dentures to wear during the process. These ensure you maintain your smile and functionality throughout the transition.
5. Custom Denture Creation: Crafting your custom implant-supported dentures is a meticulous process carried out in a dental lab. This involves creating a denture piece that perfectly matches your existing teeth in size, shape, and color. The result is a set of dentures that look and feel completely natural.
Maintaining Your Implant-Supported Dentures
Proper care is essential to keep your implant-supported dentures in excellent condition. Here are some tips for maintaining your dentures and oral health:
- Clean Your Dentures: Brush your removable dentures at least twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. For fixed dentures, ensure thorough brushing and flossing around your dental implants.
- Soak Overnight: If you have removable dentures, soak them in a denture solution overnight to keep them clean and fresh.
- Regular Checkups: Schedule regular checkups with our Old Bridge, NJ dentist to monitor the condition of your implant-supported dentures and address any issues promptly.
With their natural appearance, improved functionality, and meticulous customization, implant-supported dentures provide not only a beautiful smile but also enhanced overall well-being.
