Implant Supported Dentures Milwaukie

Dentures are a common solution, and you have two primary options: traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures.

At Michael Regan, DMD Family, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, we highly recommend implant-supported dentures to take the place of your missing teeth.

Understanding Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures can be either full or partial, depending on your specific oral health needs.

Partial dentures or bridges are typically removable and rely on crowns for support.

Full dentures, designed for those who have lost all of their teeth, are molded to fit your mouth and remain in place until removal.

However, they tend to be less stable than implant-supported dentures, which can cause discomfort during eating, talking, or any mouth movements. Additionally, they require manual removal for cleaning, which may not be ideal for some patients.

What are Implant Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures involve the placement of dental implants into your jawbone.

These denture replacements serve as anchors for a plastic base that resembles your gums and supports the replacement teeth.

Once attached, these dentures cannot be removed and stay securely in your mouth.

This approach offers many benefits, including enhanced durability, the ability to enjoy a wide range of foods without concerns about denture stability, and the convenience of cleaning them just like real teeth with brushing, flossing, and mouthwash.

Understanding All-on-4 Dental Implants

If you're dealing with severe tooth decay, gum disease, bone issues, or any dental concerns necessitating implants, we want to introduce you to the remarkable All-on-4 treatment, which can serve as your comprehensive and long-lasting solution.

With this implant, you can expect a natural look and feel, effectively addressing your past dental problems.

All-on-4 focuses on the placement of four implants in the thickest areas of your jawbone, even accommodating patients with jawbone loss.

After implantation, dentures and bridges are securely attached to these implants, providing you with a brand-new set of teeth. These four implants provide robust support for all your teeth and are built to last a lifetime.

What Type of Dentures Do I Need?

Our dental professionals strongly recommend implant-supported dentures due to their superior durability and the freedom they provide when it comes to eating and drinking.

The procedure for a full set of implant-supported dentures is relatively quick and can provide you with a beautiful smile for years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Can Dental Implants Help With?
Dental implants are versatile solutions for missing teeth. They can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even all teeth. Implants provide a stable base for crowns, bridges, or dentures, and help preserve the jawbone's integrity, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.

How To Care For Dental Implants?
Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. Regular brushing and flossing are crucial to prevent plaque buildup. It's also important to schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings to ensure the health of the implants and surrounding tissues. Avoiding hard and sticky foods can help prolong their lifespan.
