One of the chief complaints about dentures is that they slip and fall at the most inopportune times – while eating, laughing and speaking. Let’s face it; it can feel embarrassing and frustrating to many people who simply want a full smile. Implant-retained dentures solve this problem by keeping dentures in place with four or more dental implant posts.
Preparing for Implant-Retained Dentures
One must have sufficient bone to support dental implants. The use of 3D dental imaging help Dr Amir Kiaee determine if patients will need bone grafting before their dental implant placement. Once Dr Amir identifies the ideal location for dental implants, he will plan the surgery at your earliest convenience. The goal is to place dental implants over the bone arch for an even distribution of force when chewing.
Patients often find that dental implant surgery is well-tolerated, with only minor swelling and bruising following the procedure.
Fitting for an Implant-Retained Denture
After the initial healing process, Dr Amir will plan for your final denture. He meticulously plans for ideal fit, function and appearance so the denture can exceed your expectations and meet all of your dental needs.
Today’s modern dentures look more like natural teeth than ever before. We can shade- and size-match the denture teeth to complement the patient’s age, skin tone, hair colour and smile goals! No more boxy, false teeth that look too big or too white.
Reliability with Implant-Retained Dentures
Your new denture will lock into place on four or more secure dental implants. Your newfound denture stability could mean a considerable improvement in your quality of life. For example, with implant-retained dentures in Pascoe Vale, you can:
- Eat a wider variety of food
- Live without worry of embarrassment
- Enjoy life without denture relines
Dental implants also have the added benefit of maintaining bone in the area of the dental implant because of the natural stimulation that occurs from bite-force pressure.
