Implant Assisted Dentures in Woodbury, MN!

Do you struggle with uncomfortable dentures that fit poorly? Are you failing to see the benefits of dentures as a result? If so, your best option is to see a dentist from Tamarack Hills Family Dentistry and inquire about implant-supported dentures in Woodbury, MN – a relatively simple solution that can help you forget your traditional denture woes. Patients who are missing most or all of their teeth can greatly benefit from implant-supported dentures. This innovative restoration option offers a much more secure fit than traditional dentures, providing you with additional comfort and confidence when speaking, smiling, and eating. In order to ensure the success of your permanent dentures, the procedure requires a strategic placement of the implants in your jaw bone as a crucial first step.

The overall Denture process is as follows:

Implants are placed along your entire upper or lower arch, or both, depending on which teeth need to be replaced.
Holes are drilled into your denture to line up perfectly with the new implants, which have small ball joints on the heads.
Your denture snaps firmly into place over the ball joints, holding the restoration in place so that it will no longer slip or irritate your gums.

The Benefits of Dentures

There are a myriad of benefits to permanent, non-removable dentures. The key benefit is a fully restored function of your mouth, as the artificial teeth will feel entirely like your own. Because the dentures will no longer be supported only by your gums, the effects of gum recession and bone loss would also be controlled or even eliminated entirely. It is important to note that implant-supported dentures are not for everyone. If you have lost all of your upper and/or lower teeth and have perhaps delayed treatment, your jaw may be in an advanced stage of bone loss due to a prolonged lack of support from natural tooth roots. As a result, you may not have adequate bone structure to support the replacement roots, i.e., dental implants. Other issues that may affect your candidacy for implant-supported dentures include tooth decay or gum disease, teeth grinding, regular smoking and alcohol use, and many more. Your dentist Dr. Matha will perform a thorough evaluation of your dental health to ensure that this procedure is indeed right for your distinct situation. Should the procedure not be suitable at the moment, we will offer our support in improving your eligibility, if at all possible.
