One of the most complete restorative dentistry treatments available combines dental implants and dentures for a natural look and excellent function. Columbine Creek Dentistry offers implant supported dentures for our patients that need a full mouth restoration. This advanced method of dental restoration can give you back a complete smile that stays in place without adhesives.
Some of the biggest downfalls of dentures are due to the possible movement while wearing them. Dentures can slip and cause embarrassing moments in social situations. Shifting of the dentures can cause discomfort and it can be difficult to eat certain foods. The adhesives used to hold them in place can be gritty and unpleasant to use.
With implant supported dentures, you do not need to worry about adhesives or slipping incidents. The dentures are held in place by dental implants, giving them a secure foothold for more natural function. There are several different options for supported dentures; some are removable while others are permanently secured in place. One of the options we offer at Columbine Creek Dentistry is the popular All-on-4 Dental Implants.
All-on-4 dental implant supported dentures give you the benefits of complete dentures with the advantages of implant support. This method uses four implants to hold the dentures in place permanently. There is no slipping or movement for improved appearance and function compared to traditional dentures. They can be cleaned like natural teeth and can last a lifetime if maintained.
Another benefit of implant supported dentures is improved bone growth in the jaw. Once teeth are lost, the bone can deteriorate, changing the shape and strength of the jaw. Implants stimulate bone growth, helping reduce the chance of bone loss. This helps support the facial muscles for a more youthful appearance.
