Repairing the smile after tooth loss or extraction can feel overwhelming to patients who are not familiar with restorative dentistry. Dentists in the Carshalton Beeches area have a wide range of techniques and materials that are used to fabricate quality dentures. Whether patients need partial dentures or complete dentures, they can seek services at The Dental Implant Clinic for comprehensive care.
Patients missing an entire arch of teeth are often eligible for complete dentures. These are dentures that fit over the ridge of the gum and replace all the teeth on the top or lower jaw. The dentists at The Dental Implant Clinic have many ways to create custom dentures for a perfect fit, including implant-supported dentures.
Implant-supported dentures are complete dentures that are used by patients who want more stability and strength. Instead of using dental adhesives or natural suction to keep dentures in place, patients can have a few implants placed into the jawbone along the dental arch. The denture is made to snap over them, providing optimum fit, function, and comfort.
The team at The Dental Implant Clinic work with patients to determine if implant-supported complete dentures are appropriate for their specific needs. Patients who consider this method must have enough bone structure in the jaw to ensure the successful implantation of the dental implants. Dental implants need bone in order to solidify them in place during osseointegration. Patients without sufficient bone may not be a good candidate, or may need to speak to their dental team about the possibility of bone grafting.
At The Dental Implant Clinic, we encourage patients to take the time to learn about our implant-supported complete dentures and how much they can change the way patients feel about their appearance and ability to speak and chew even after tooth loss or extraction of the entire dental arch. We recommend men and women take the time to book a no-obligation consultation appointment with our team of professionals to learn about this method of repairing the smile and find out if it is right for them.
