Replacing missing teeth is often needed for our patients, especially when they have lost or extracted a large number of teeth. Traditional full dentures are usually the route they consider. However, there’s another option that is regarded as a more effective way of replacing teeth and enjoying all your favorite foods! Drs. Mark Duncan and Mandy Holley of Aesthetic Dentistry of Georgetown in Georgetown, TX may recommend an alternative treatment known as implant-retained dentures that can provide reliable restoration of the smile for new and returning patients in the practice.
What exactly are implant-retained dentures?
Our implant-retained denture is a type of complete denture that is supported by dental implants rather than natural suction or adhesives. Dental implants are unique, quality titanium posts placed into the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Once the implants are fully integrated with the bone, they provide a stable foundation for your new teeth.
Am I a candidate for implant-retained dentures?
The best way to determine if you are a candidate for implant-retained dentures is to schedule a consultation appointment with Drs. Mark Duncan and Mandy Holley at their Georgetown, TX area practice. During your appointment, they will perform a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, and gums. They will also review your medical history to ensure no contraindications with medications or conditions that could make the placement and maintenance of dental implants difficult. X-rays get imaging of the natural jawbone and decide if your jaw can support the implants placed along the arch. Only then may they recommend the use of implant-retained dentures to restore the function and beauty of the smile.
