Can I Replace Older Dentures With An Implant-Held Appliance?

While traditional dentures can give a person back their complete smile, they may begin to frustrate you over time due to their lack of support. Worrying about their stability while biting, chewing, and speaking can become frustrating, and you can be less than pleased with the feeling of epoxies used to hold them in place. Over time, you can start to find them less comfortable because the loss of jawbone density you experience can make them less secure. So what can you do about these issues? By moving to All-On-4 implant dentures, you can enjoy better stability for your prosthetic. Our Katy, TX dental office can speak with you about moving to implant-held dentures, and discuss the process of implant placement and restoration with you.

Implant-Held Dentures Offer Exciting Benefits

With implant-held dentures, you can have an easier time biting and chewing food, and you can even find that speaking and laughing are more comfortable. You can also be glad to know that your implants will be able to stimulate your jawbone, and encourage a flow of nutrients to the bone that can keep it in good health. With better stability, and better jawbone health, you can find that your implant-held dentures offer more appeal in the long term.

Discussing Implant-Based Prosthetic Work With Your Dentist

At our practice, we have worked with patients who were interested in single-tooth dental implants, as well as sequences of implants to hold larger restorations. Before moving forward with treatment, an evaluation should be performed to confirm that you are a good candidate for implant placement. It may be necessary to arrange a grafting procedure to give your jawbone more support to hold your implants. Once you are approved, we can help you understand the process, and start you on a path to a secure prosthetic!

We Can Help You Resolve More Than Just Tooth Loss

Advanced tooth loss can do more than just change the way you look. As we work with you, we can discuss treatments for issues like TMJ disorder, which can occur when tooth loss affects your jaw movement as you bite, chew, and speak. We can also talk to you about restoring any remaining teeth that may be in poor health, so you can be free of any lingering oral health concerns that have not been managed already.
