Permanent Denture Solutions in Cornwall, ON
Tooth implants can replace individual teeth or support a prosthetic (denture, partial, or bridge). If you suffer from a loose or slipping denture, dental implants can help you reclaim self-confidence in social, romantic, and professional situations.
Dental implants are small titanium posts embedded in the jawbone. In addition to anchoring prosthetic teeth, tooth implants reduce the potential for jaw deterioration because of the stimulating effect they have on bone tissue.
Implant posts for implant dentures come in two styles. Your denture (new or modified to fit on tooth implants) will snap onto abutments on the implant posts or, if you so choose, they may attach to a bar supported across implant posts. Dr. Deneka will talk with you about these options and help you decide which solution is best for your situation.
The Implant Dentures Procedure
To get your implant dentures, plan on a minor surgery with a respected oral surgeon or periodontist. Dr. Deneka will oversee your treatment as your general dentist, coordinating with the specialist throughout your surgery. Then, once your mouth has healed and bone has integrated with the posts, Dr. Deneka will work with our dental lab to create a custom denture, partial, or dental bridge, or to modify your current prosthetic. He’ll teach you how to attach and remove your implant dentures if applicable.
You will not have to hassle with messy denture adhesive or natural suction to hold your denture in place. Simple care instructions will be provided, and if you follow them, your tooth implants could last the rest of your life.
When the actual denture or other prosthetic wears out, it will need to be replaced or altered. Regular maintenance and checkups are highly recommended.
