The closest possible replacement for natural teeth are dental implants. Dentures secured on dental implants are more stable therefore a greater variety of foods can be chewed effectively without dislodging the dentures. A dental implant is a small dental “post” or “screw” that is placed in the jawbone as an artificial substitution for a natural tooth root. This provides a strong foundation to support or secure a partial or full denture. The benefits of dental implants are improved ability to eat foods, decreased denture discomfort, increased denture stability, decrease in bone loss at implant site(s), improved digestion and nutrition, improved self-esteem, reduced palate of an upper denture to increase taste, temperature and texture of food.
A consultation is first set up to discuss your treatment options. We work together with the implant placing Doctor* to determine if dental implants are right for you and coordinate the treatment plan that best suits your needs. Several appointments will be necessary for the dentures to be fabricated and to be secured on the dental implants. A consultation appointment and thorough examination will also be required with the implant placing Doctor.
There you will be assessed to see whether you are in good oral and general health, and whether you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. To determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, an x-ray or CT scan may be necessary. The collaboration and the communication shared between you, your Denturist and the implant placing Doctor is essential. Through the consultation, examination, and planning for dental implants, it will be determined whether dental implants are the right treatment for you, and the number of dental implants
required to meet your expectations.
*‘Implant placing Doctor’ refers to a Dental Surgeon (Dentist), Oral Surgeon (Maxillofacial Surgeon), or Periodontist (Gum Specialist) trained and licensed to place dental implants in the mouth.
