Take Your Dentures to the Next Level

They still sit on top of the gums, allowing the jawbone beneath to deteriorate over time. At Brookwood Dental Associates, we are proud to offer implant dentures in Lansdale as an alternative solution. We take pride in the quality of our work, and you can rely on your implant dentures to last for decades, not only a few years like with normal dentures. Contact our team and schedule a consultation with us if you’d like to learn more about implant dentures!

Why Choose Brookwood Dental Associates for Implant Dentures?

Instead of only replacing the visible parts of the missing teeth, implant dentures go deeper, below the gumline. With root-like posts, four to six implants substitute for the natural roots and become embedded in the jawbone. The dentures work with the implants to restore the entire tooth structure and provide more strength and stability than dentures alone can give. There are two types of implant dentures you can get:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

You can choose to have your dentures permanently affixed to your dental implants. This option makes your replacement teeth feel as authentic as possible. In this case, only our professional team will be able to take out your dentures, giving you plenty of peace of mind for your smile.

Removable Implant Dentures

If you prefer to have the option of removing your prosthetic teeth, your dentures can “snap” onto your implants, allowing you to take out your dentures. Some patients choose this route because they like being able to clean their dentures externally. Keep in mind that these dentures are just as secure as fixed dentures.

The process of getting implant dentures is much like that of getting any kind of implant restoration. First, we start with a consultation, when we’ll assess whether this treatment would best meet your needs. After that, we’ll surgically position usually between four and six implants strategically in the arch and cover the sites with protective caps. When the sites have healed and the jawbone has grown around the posts, we’ll then take impressions of your mouth so that our dental lab technicians can create your entirely custom denture. Finally, when it’s finished, you’ll come back in to our office to have the denture bonded to your implants.

Almost anyone who has suffered total tooth loss is eligible for implant dentures, but there are a few requirements. You need to have enough jawbone density in order to give the requisite support for the implants. Your mouth also needs to be healthy, free from infection. Those who have certain medical issues, such as uncontrolled diabetes, osteoporosis, or smoking, may require preliminary treatment to become qualified for implant placement. Even if you do not initially make a good candidate for implants, we can help you become one through bone grafts, gum disease therapy, or other preparatory treatments.

If you’ve worn dentures for any amount of time, you already know many of the struggles that come with them. Dentures can feel strange at first and take some getting used to. Over time, the suction that holds them in place changes, making it easier for the dentures to slip when you talk, laugh, or eat. As a result, you can feel more self-conscious or hesitant around others. Attaching your dentures to implants basically resolves all of these problems. Implant dentures look and feel close to real teeth, and they are extremely stable, helping you feel confident about your complete smile.
