At Bionica Dental Wellness, Dr. Holinbeck and her team want you to feel great about your smile. When teeth are missing, this can wreak havoc on not only your self-esteem but also your oral health. To fix this problem, you may be tempted to settle for more traditional options like full dentures, but what if there was another way to permanently restore your smile? With dental implants, Dr. Holinbeck can give you greater confidence and enhance aesthetics! Using bioceramic implants, these metal-free restorations will have you seeing a new and improved appearance that is safer, more environmentally friendly, and healthier for your smile and body. Contact our team today to learn more about taking the next step toward implant-retained dentures.
Implant-retained dentures are made up of bioceramic material, which means there is no metal involved. Instead of using a traditional titanium post, these non-metal restorations are a safer alternative and can easily fuse with your jawbone and surrounding tissues when surgically placed.
Using between 4 and 6 bioceramic implants, you will have a solid, more stable foundation that supports your custom-made denture.
To receive an implant-retained denture, you must have missing teeth in the lower or upper arch of your mouth. These restorations are ideal solutions for individuals who’ve lost all their teeth or require tooth extraction to remove the remaining teeth.
When arriving for your consultation with Dr. Holinbeck, she will examine your oral cavity and facial structure to determine whether your jawbone is strong enough to support your implants. If it is, you will continue through the process of impressions and scheduling your implant placement procedure. If not, she will likely recommend that you have an additional procedure known as a bone graft or sinus lift to add bone minerals to the weakened areas of your jawbone.
Once you’ve fully healed from this process, which typically takes several months, you can then move forward with dental implant placement to replace your missing teeth.
The dental implant placement process takes time and should not be rushed. It is necessary to undergo a full recovery before having the finalized restoration put into place, as this will ensure your implants are fused properly and create the solid foundation needed to support your restoration.
When it comes to choosing implant-retained dentures, the benefits are far greater than other, more traditional methods. Some of the advantages you’ll notice with dental implants include:
