San Jose, CA dental practice offers full-arch implant-retained dentures
Patients of the San Jose, California, community, and beyond who want to restore their smile with an alternative to traditional full dentures will want to take the time to consult with Drs. Munira Lokhandwala and Maryum Tariq of StarBrite Dental to learn more about the use of full-arch dental implants. With dental implants placed along the dental arch, patients can use an implant-retained denture that ensures the best possible function.
What is an implant-retained denture?
Traditional full dentures are used to replace all the teeth in the dental arch. They are made of acrylic and include both false teeth and gums. In most situations, patients will keep these dentures in place with either natural suction or the use of denture adhesives. However, these can be messy and unreliable. Instead, many patients opt for implant-retained dentures through StarBrite Dental. These dentures use just false teeth that snap into place using dental implants along the dental arch. This ensures better fit, function and a more conservative restoration requiring less time to adjust.
Who is a candidate for full-arch dental implants?
The best candidates for implant-retained dentures are patients who have an otherwise healthy smile free from periodontal disease and tooth decay. Additionally, they should have sufficient bone in the jaw to ensure the implants’ successful placement during oral surgery. During a consultation appointment, our dentists may take a series of x-rays in addition to providing a thorough physical examination of the smile to determine a patient’s candidacy for this or alternative options.
How much do dental implants cost?
There are several factors involved in the cost of dental implants and their use for implant-retained dentures, so it is important that patients book a consultation visit with our team for a full evaluation. In some instances, patients may have dental insurance benefits that can significantly reduce the cost of treatment.
