Thanks to advances in restorative dentistry over the last several years, patients today have a number of effective options when it comes to replacing missing or damaged teeth. More and more people are choosing denture implants in Edmonton from Bonnie Doon Denture Clinic. Unlike full or partial dentures, which sit on top of the gums, denture implants attach to the jawbone. They consist of an artificial titanium tooth root which functions as an anchor for the denture.
Why Choose Denture Implants?
Many people prefer to use denture implants in Edmonton for how similar they look and feel to natural teeth. Denture implants also function just like natural teeth, restoring your ability to bite and chew. Strong and stable, dentures supported by implants move around far less than regular dentures, making it easier to speak clearly and more comfortable to wear. Because of how similar they are to natural teeth, denture implants take very little time to get used to.
Another important benefit of implant-supported dentures is that they can protect the health of the jawbone. When you lose a tooth, the bone that used to hold the root in place can begin to deteriorate as a result. Denture implants replace a natural tooth root with a metal one which attaches to the jawbone just as a natural root would, helping to preserve the surrounding bone.
The Denture Implant Procedure
The complete process of placing denture implants in Edmonton is straightforward. Consult with your Denturist for more details.
During the first procedure, the titanium metal roots of the denture implants are placed into the gums and attached to the jawbone. The gums are stitched back into place and completely cover the implants, which need two to six months to bond to the jawbone and create strong anchors for the artificial teeth. This process is known as osseointegration. Once the bonding process is complete and the gum tissue has healed, a second procedure is needed in order to expose the implants and connect abutments to them. The abutments will serve to hold the dentures in place.
After the abutment placement, your Denturist will fit your new dentures to the top of the implants. These dentures will be precisely custom-made to your mouth for the perfect fit. Once the whole denture implant procedure is finished, it won’t take long before you feel comfortable in your ability to bite, chew, and speak.
