Implant-Supported Dentures in Edmond
Tired of Loose Dentures?
Get Stable New Teeth and Increased Chewing Power With Implant-Supported Dentures
At Dental Specialists of Edmond, we provide solutions that enable our patients to overcome the disadvantages of dentures and get a natural-looking, confident smile and stronger chewing power.
Denture wearers are all too familiar with the problems associated with dentures. They come loose, can move around while you're eating or speaking, and need to be periodically relined by a dentist. These issues are a result of continuous bone loss, which is made worse by wearing dentures. Dentures can’t apply enough pressure to stimulate the underlying jawbone. As a result, over time, the jawbone shrinks away, making it very difficult to keep a denture well fitted.
Supporting Dentures With Dental Implants
Implant-supported dentures don’t have the problems that traditional dentures do. Because the teeth are securely attached to dental implants, the teeth remain stably held in place, and the upper denture no longer needs a false palate that prevents you from fully tasting and enjoying your food. The support from implants restores strong chewing power, allowing patients to eat the foods they enjoy and that will help keep them healthy. Plus, the implants stimulate your jawbone rather than encourage bone loss, helping you to maintain a healthy, youthful facial appearance.
State-of-the-Art Dental Technology
Using state-of-the-art dental technology and his ability to perform all aspects of the implant procedure in-house, Dr. Koticha provides the best possible dental implant treatment.
Dental Implant Options For Denture Wearers
Our doctors provide both removable and fixed-in options for implant-supported dentures. After a thorough consultation, they will recommend the best option for your unique case.
Removable, Implant-Supported, Snap-In Denture
Drs. Koticha and Al Sakka provide removable snap-in dentures supported by four to six implants per arch. Snap-in dentures are stable in the mouth and provide significantly greater chewing power than conventional dentures. They can also be removed easily and securely snapped back into place, thanks to special connector points on the implants and corresponding sockets on the denture.
Because they are firmly secured to implants, gooey adhesives aren’t needed to keep them in place. Snap-in dentures don’t move around while eating or speaking, so you won’t have to worry about them falling out or causing embarrassment.
Fixed-In, Implant-Supported Teeth
For the ultimate in chewing strength, you can get permanently fixed-in new teeth. These cannot be removed except by a doctor.
With the revolutionary New Teeth in One Day procedure, you can get fixed-in, implant-supported teeth placed during a one-day procedure, usually without any need for bone grafting. Click here to learn more.
