What your dentists in Stockton want you to knowimplant dentures

If you wear conventional dentures, or if you need dentures, you owe it to yourself to consider implant-supported dentures. That’s because an implant-supported denture is much like your natural teeth. Implants also help to preserve bone structure, vital to maintaining the youthful contours of your face.

Your dentists at Brookside Dental Care in Stockton, CA, want to share some of the many benefits of implant-supported dentures. When you choose implant dentures, you will experience:

  • Permanence, because with proper care, your implant dentures can last a lifetime
  • Stability, because your implant denture won’t move around like non-supported conventional dentures can
  • Cosmetic beauty, because your implant denture will appear and function just like natural teeth

Conventional non-supported dentures can actually cause bone to diminish over time, due to pressure from the denture. The loss of bone can cause your face to sag and look much older. In contrast, an implant-supported denture will actually preserve bone, helping you maintain your youthful look.

To begin the process, your dentists at Brookside Dental Care will place the implants in your jaw through a simple in-office process. Over time, your body will produce bone to fuse with the implant, locking it in place.

You may receive a temporary denture the same day so you don’t have to live without teeth. A permanent denture will be made for you after the implants have healed completely.

In other cases, you will go through a healing period and once your implants are fully embedded in bone, a permanent denture will be made. This process has the advantage of you only having to get used to one denture.

Your dentists will discuss the various treatment options with you and develop a treatment plan based on your needs and individual characteristics.

If you need a denture, don’t see just anyone. Your smile is your best first impression, so go see the best and find out more about implant dentures.
