Implant Supported Dentures in Hendersonville, Asheville & Brevard, NC
Choosing dental implants in North Carolina with Dr. Glenn J. Shefter and Dr. Greg S. Fertik in Asheville, NC will give you different options to choose from when considering your dental care solutions. To replace missing teeth, some patients are best suited for denture implants, or implant supported dentures.
Implant supported dentures are less expensive and less time consuming than having a single dental implant procedure for each missing tooth, but they still provide many of the same benefits. Denture implants make dentures more stable and are also healthier than traditional dentures. This is because dental implants are designed to work the way real, natural tooth roots do. Tooth roots engage and stimulate the jaw bone to keep it from becoming weak and deteriorating. Even if you already have bone loss, which is a common problem among patients who wear traditional dentures, getting implant dentures will help to stop it from worsening.
Two Types of Implant Dentures
These implant dentures work just above the gum tissues. After placing the implants in areas where your bone density is greatest, we will connect them with a thin bar of wire, place the denture on top, and clip it securely in place. It really is that simple and stable!
These implant dentures operate with a ball and socket model and are also called stud attached dentures. Unlike a traditional denture, which covers the roof of the mouth, this modern alternative keeps the roof open, allowing you to fully taste and feel your favorite foods and beverages. The implants, which have tiny balls on the tips, are surgically placed in the jaw and then a denture with matching sockets is lined up and snapped into place.
