Are you missing all or most of your teeth? If you have dentures already or are considering them, you may want to think about implant-retained dentures as an option. This solution provides you with a way to restore all of your teeth with the advantages of dental implants. Dr. Afshin Azmoodeh and Dr. Adrian De Vincenzo are experienced in placing and restoring dental implants to give their patients unmatched comfort and confidence.
Implant-retained dentures combine the benefits of dentures and dental implants in Richardson to give you unmatched feel, function, and beauty. We use dental implants, which are tiny titanium posts that are placed in your jawbone to secure your dentures. A traditional prosthesis rests on top of your gums, whereas implant-retained dentures actually anchor your dentures permanently to your jaw. This creates not only a more natural looking and feeling smile, but it allows you stronger biting power to eat a more varying diet.
Candidates for implant-retained dentures will typically have a jawbone that is strong enough to accommodate dental implants. However, a bone graft can be performed in many cases to add volume to your jawbone. You must also be committed to a good oral healthcare routine. The best way to ensure that you’re a candidate is to visit our office. Dr. Azmoodeh or Dr. De Vincenzo will carefully examine your mouth to decide whether or not you could benefit from implant-retained dentures.
After deciding that implant-retained dentures are right for you, we will develop your personalized treatment plan. First, we will make small incisions in your gums to access your jawbone. Then, we’ll place your dental implants, allowing for at least 3 to 4 months for them to completely integrate into your jawbone. Once they are permanently in place, we’ll mount your custom-made denture onto your implants, giving you a beautifully restored smile.
