A More Stabilized Denture
An implant-retained denture is a type of overdenture that’s stabilized using dental implants. Typically, dentures rest on top of your gums using adhesives or suction, but an implant-retained denture is fastened to your jawbone.
An overdenture secured by dental implants is a great restorative treatment for patients who are missing all of their teeth, yet still have sufficient bone in their jaw. It can also be a great solution for those who have tried a traditional denture, but can’t get accustomed to it as it constantly slides around.
Dr. Hobbs can help improve your ability to eat and speak, as well as completely enhance your appearance and boost your overall confidence with this natural-looking solution.
Benefits of Implant-Retained Dentures
Implant-retained dentures provide you with ultimate comfort. They’re custom-made to fit in your mouth precisely and they’re secured with numerous dental implants, so you won’t have to worry about them shifting around.
When you undergo implant treatment for your overdenture, you’ll experience many advantages with your new smile, including:
- Ability to eat all your favorite foods again
- Speak without hesitation
- Enjoy a comfortable, customized fit just for you
- A permanent denture that doesn’t move
- More confidence with a stunning, natural-looking smile
The Process with Dr. Hobbs
If you’re considering implant-retained dentures to completely restore your smile, the first step of the process is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Hobbs. At your first appointment, he’ll listen to your smile goals and evaluate the condition of your mouth.
After he examines your oral health using our advanced technology and confirms you have enough bone density to support dental implants, he can begin planning your treatment.
At your next visit, Dr. Hobbs will surgically place a few dental implants, typically in the front of your jaw, and provide you with a temporary denture while your mouth recovers over the next couple of months.
During your healing process, the implants will integrate with your jawbone, creating a durable, firm base for your overdenture. After the dental implants have successfully bonded with your jaw, you’ll return to our office so Dr. Hobbs can attach your beautiful denture.
