Has your extensive tooth loss caused you to lose your self-confidence? Even if you have traditional dentures to help correct your problem, you have probably experienced some embarrassment due to your dentures slipping or falling out while you eat or speak. If you’ve been looking for a long-term and secure solution to your problem, then implant-supported dentures in Atlanta may be the answer that you have been looking for.

What Do I Need to Know About Implant-Supported Dentures?

Affordable, quality implant-supported dentures are both supported by and attached to dental implants. This means that they are a stable, secure and comfortable alternative to traditional dentures. Traditional dentures rest on the gums and are sometimes held in place via adhesive, meaning that you may experience some slippage or your dentures falling out when chewing or speaking. Implant dentures avoid this problem entirely. If you don’t have any teeth and your jawbone still has enough structure to support two or more implants, this kind of denture could offer you a number of benefits. We usually recommend these dentures for the lower jaw, but they can also be utilized for the upper jaw as well.

Can You Tell Me How Implant Dentures Work & What the Procedure Consists Of?

There are two main types of implant-supported dentures: ball-retained dentures and bar-retained dentures. While these two types of dentures function in different ways, they both offer the same amount of comfort, stability and reliability. Both kinds are composed of acrylic bases that match the look of your gums. Porcelain or acrylic is used to match the look of natural teeth. Ball-retained dentures have sockets that fit the ball-shaped attachments that are located on each implant. Bar-retained dentures are clipped into place on a curved metal bar via attachments.

Your dentures will be put on over the course of two dental visits. First, the implants will be surgically placed into the jawbone and under the gum line. You will then come in to see the dentist again after a period of three to six months has passed. This gives the implants time to fuse into the jawbone. The second procedure you will undergo will expose the tops of your implants. Sometimes, the dentist may be able to place your implants and any supporting mechanisms in just one visit. Once you have seen one of our dentists, he or she will determine what the best course of action is for you.

How Much Will My Bill for Implant-Supported Dentures Cost?

Figuring out the cost of denture implants is something that many of our patients are concerned about. It is important to understand that the cost of these implants varies significantly from patient to patient.

Will I Need to Do Anything Special to Take Care of My Implant-Supported Dentures?

If you want to keep your implant-supported dentures looking brand new, you will need to practice proper oral hygiene. We always recommend that you clean your dentures and any attachments at morning and at night so that there is no opportunity for bacteria to grow inside of your mouth. To properly clean your dentures, use a toothbrush with soft bristles. You should be holding your toothbrush at an angle to the gum and using a horizontal brushing movement during cleaning. A proxabrush is available for more intensive cleaning that can reach the tips of your dentures. In order to fit dental floss under tight areas you will need to utilize a dental threader.
