If you have lost most of your teeth but your jaw is still intact, implant dentures in Oakville are a great solution for your needs. Also called implant supported dentures, these dentures are a permanent solution to your missing teeth problem. Dental implants that are set into your gums and jawbone provide sturdy support for your new teeth. They do not rest on your new gums, rubbing them raw, and they won’t move around the way other types of dentures can.
Implant dentures are perfect for those who have lost their teeth bust still have an intact jawbone that can support dental implants. When you come to Burloak Denture Clinic for implant dentures in Oakville and the surrounding areas, you’re getting a permanent denture solution that can help prevent the shrinkage of your jawbone that happens after your teeth fall out.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant dentures can replace just your upper or lower teeth, or they can be used to replace all of your teeth. Implant dentures are most often made for the lower jaw because other dentures tend to be unstable there, but they also work well for the upper jaw as they don’t cover the entirety of the roof of your mouth the way complete dentures do.
At your first implant denture appointment, you will meet with your denturist to see if you have enough jawbone to connect with implant dentures. If so, you will undergo a surgery where four to six dental implants will be placed into your jawbone. The implants are often placed towards the front of your mouth because there is usually more bone there. After the implants are placed, your new, non-removable teeth will be secured.
Healing times are estimated to be between three and four months, but patients often report quick healing times and little discomfort. You will want to take pain relieving medications for two or three days after the procedure, but after that main should be very minimal.
Caring for Implant Dentures in Oakville
Implant dentures withstand the forces of biting and chewing better than conventional dentures can. You can brush and floss implant dentures the way you would natural teeth, and your diet is much less restricted with these than other dentures. Because they are sturdier, you can eat foods like nut butters and tough meats but should still avoid sticky candies, seeds that can get stuck between your teeth, and hard foods that can damage the denture.
Replacing your missing teeth will improve your appearance, smile and confidence while helping keep your jawbone intact. Your implant dentures will be more stable than regular dentures. It will be easier to speak, and they stay in place while you eat, talk and laugh. You won’t have to worry about them coming loose and falling out of your mouth at any time.
