Dental implants are the absolute best way to support your dentures. With proper care, dental implants can offer a lifetime of support for your partial or full dentures. Implants are also unique in that patients do not have to worry about their dentures slipping out of place while eating or speaking.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically embedded at the jawbone. Placing dental implants usually requires two surgeries over a period of a few months, and then the denture is attached to the implants when healing is complete. As you heal, the implant will fuse with the bone, eventually functioning as an artificial tooth root. The result is the most durable and lifelike way of supporting your dentures.
Those with dental implants can easily bite into apples or steaks without having to worry that their dentures will slip out of place. They can speak easily and articulate their words as they normally would. They also don’t have to worry about bone loss as a result of a missing tooth. In the absence of tooth roots, the jaw can begin to atrophy, or shrink. Dental implants actually halt this process, making them one of the wisest investments you can make in a compromised smile.
If you require a full arch of dentures, then you may be a candidate for an innovative procedure called All-on-4®. This treatment requires only four dental implants to support an entire dental arch. The entire procedure, including tooth extraction, inserting the implants and placing the dentures, can be completed in one visit.
For patients who want the benefits of dentures combined with a more youthful appearance, Jackman Dental is proud to offer Stricland Facelift Dentures™. These dentures provide support for your underlying facial structure, making your lips look more full, reducing the prominence of wrinkles, strengthening your chin, and filling out your face. These dentures can be traditional or implant supported. They are great for patients who want to reduce the aged look that long-term traditional denture use can sometimes cause.
Dr. Jackman can also provide traditional dentures. Our traditional dentures are crafted to achieve a snug fit onto your gums, and are further secured with a mild adhesive.
We take great care to create dentures that look and feel natural in your mouth. As a very patient-oriented practice, we work closely with you to determine which denture options are the best to meet your goals and needs. We have a long-standing relationship with our excellent offsite lab, and take accurate impressions of your smile to ensure that its exact dimensions are used in creating your dentures. Turnaround time for dentures differs from case to case, but most patients are able to have their dentures within just a few days.
We want you to have the confidence and quality of life that a full smile provides. If you need to replace missing or severely damaged teeth, contact us to learn more about our denture options.
