Dental implants and full dentures can be used together for tooth replacement in Fremont
When patients have full dentures, they may experience complications with keeping them in place. While dental adhesives are a common method of securing dentures, they are not the only way. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of Fremont, CA can use dental implants to stabilize full dentures and provide worry-free restoration of the smile.
What are implant-supported dentures?
Full dentures that are made to snap over dental implants are an effective way of replacing an entire arch of teeth. Full dentures on their own may be troublesome, and patients may feel self-conscious and worry about their dentures slipping out of place at inopportune moments. This is when the dentist may suggest implant-supported dentures. These full dentures work with the implants which are fixed into the bone of the jaw – providing the ultimate stability.
How does it work?
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala first determines if patients are appropriate candidates for dental implants. These candidates must have sufficient bone of the jaw to keep the implant firmly in place. An oral surgery procedure is scheduled during which several implants are placed along the dental arch. Then, the full dentures are made to fit into place over these implants for unsurpassed stability and strength.
What are the benefits of implant-supported dentures?
- No worries
- Wise investment
What other tooth replacement options are available?
Dental implants are used in many ways to replace one or more teeth. They can hold a denture, a dental bridge, or a dental crown. Alternatives patients can consider when restoring their smiles include dental bridges and partial dentures.
