Are you among the 36 million adults in the United States who are living with complete tooth loss? Have you tried traditional dentures but did not get the results you wanted? You are not out of options. With implant retained dentures in Louisville, you will regain the next best thing to your natural teeth. Using dental implant posts, your denture will be securely held in place, so you no longer need to worry about slipping or irritation.
Dental implants have quickly become the preferred solution to treat tooth loss because they offer over a 95% success rate. By surgically placing implant posts into your jawbone, they act as a new tooth root. This stimulates new bone growth, allowing the posts to fuse with your bone. This not only allows them to potentially remain in place forever, but also provides a secure and stable foundation for the denture.
After ensuring that you are a candidate for the procedure, an average of 4 dental implant posts are inserted into your jawbone. Then, abutments are placed on the posts to connect your custom-made denture. When compared to traditional dentures, the use of the implant posts allows you to enjoy an increased biting force of over 70%.
You will be able to eat your favorite foods while also speaking clearly without the worry of your dentures slipping. They will look and feel natural to improve your smile.
If you are ready to complete your smile with dental implants, you will first require an initial consultation to ensure that you are a candidate. In addition to a visual examination, diagnostic images are needed to evaluate the density of your jawbone. You must have adequate bone density to support the posts. If it is compromised, you may need a bone grafting procedure prior to the placement of the posts.
In addition to the density of your jawbone, you must also have good oral and general health. You cannot have any risk factors that may hinder the healing process or the long-term success of the procedure, such as immune disorders.
To begin the treatment, the diagnostic images will be used to pinpoint the precise location for your implant posts. After they have been inserted into your jawbone, digital impressions are taken to create your custom-made denture. It will be made to match your exact size, shape, and color needs. Not only will this ensure the proper fit and function, but also create a flawless smile that looks natural.
