At Elevate Dental Implant Center, we are happy to provide our patients with all dental implant services under one roof, including implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are the premier restoration service for patients missing a full arch of teeth.
While traditional dentures will get the job done in the short term, patients often struggle with the lifestyle alterations that are required. Implant-supported dentures minimize the discomforts associated with traditional dentures and gift patients with the opportunity to experience life with a fully functioning, stable smile.
Implant-Supported Dentures in Hanover, MD
Our experienced doctors have helped many patients achieve a better quality of life for themselves with implant-supported dentures. Traditional dentures come with a variety of inconveniences that make it difficult to enjoy your dental restoration. With implant-supported dentures, patients can look forward to the following benefits:
- Longer lasting restoration
- More stability
- No denture slippage
- No dietary restrictions
- Better ability to enunciate
- Increased confidence and self-esteem
- Prevention of bone loss and facial sagging
Incorporating dental implants into your restorative dentistry treatment plan can save you many years of discomfort. The implants hold your dentures firmly in place, allowing you to speak and eat confidently and without worrying about denture slippage.
Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures rarely require adjustment because the implants prevent bone loss in your jaw–saving you time spent in the dental chair later on.
How long will it take my implant-supported dentures to heal?
Whenever dental implants are incorporated into a treatment plan, patients should expect longer healing times. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures require a surgical procedure. The implant posts will be surgically implanted to allow them to fuse together with your jawbone and give you the long-term support you desire.
Following the post-placement procedure, it can take up to six months for the posts to fully fuse together with your jawbone. This process is called osseointegration, which is the process of the posts replacing your tooth roots and giving your dental restoration the full functionality that your natural teeth once did.
