Why Choose Northern Smiles Dentistry For Your Implants and Implant Dentures?

Dental implants and implant dentures are advanced solutions for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral function and aesthetics. Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums or rely on neighboring teeth for support, dental implants provide a more stable and permanent option by anchoring artificial teeth directly into the jawbone.

Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gums. These implants serve as artificial tooth roots, providing a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Over time, the jawbone fuses with the titanium post through a process called osseointegration, creating a secure and stable base. Once the implant has integrated with the bone, a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture can be attached to the implant, effectively replacing the missing tooth or teeth.

What Are Implant Dentures?

Implant dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures or overdentures, combine the benefits of dental implants with the convenience of dentures. These dentures are designed to attach to a few strategically placed dental implants in the jawbone, providing increased stability and support compared to traditional removable dentures.

There are two main types of implant dentures:

Bar-Retained Dentures:

In this approach, a thin metal bar is attached to the dental implants in the jawbone. The denture is then fitted with special attachments that clip onto the bar, holding the denture securely in place.

Ball-Retained Dentures:

This method involves attaching small ball-shaped connectors to the dental implants. The denture is designed with corresponding sockets that fit over the balls, creating a secure connection.

Both dental implants and implant dentures require a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan, and the process typically involves multiple stages, including implant placement surgery, healing periods, and the final attachment of replacement teeth. While the initial investment may be higher compared to traditional dentures, the long-term benefits and improved quality of life often make implants and implant dentures a preferred choice for many individuals seeking tooth replacement solutions.
