Considering permanent dentures with implants? Contact San Jose area dentist for more information!
Restoring the smile can be a confusing aspect for many patients in the San Jose, California area. From bridges to dentures, the options may all seem like viable choices. However, when patients are seeking permanent solutions for their smile, they are urged to consider the benefit of implant-retained dentures available at Starbrite Dental.
What are implant-retained dentures?
Patients with full dentures that cover the entire arch may experience complications with these restorations. While full dentures are held in place with natural suction or dental adhesives, they may still become troublesome for patients. They may shift or fall out, resulting in embarrassing social situations. Instead, patients should think about alternative options such as implant-retained dentures. These are dentures that replace the full dental arch but are held in place with several implants placed along the gums. The dentures then snap into place with the implants for full retention.
What is the process of obtaining implant-retained dentures?
Permanent dentures such as these start with an evaluation including x-rays. X-rays allow the dentist to determine if the patient has enough bone structure to successfully hold implants in place. The implants are put into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery and then are restored over the top with the dentures themselves. The entire process may take several weeks, but the finished results are flawless!

- Natural appearance
- Strength and durability
