To enhance the stability of your dentures, dental implants can be placed to provide extra support. For more information about dental implants in Abbotsford, come in for a consultation at Kafka Denture Clinic. We'll examine your mouth and talk to you about your options as we develop a personalized treatment plan. Implant-supported dentures are recommended for patients who are missing their teeth but have enough bone mass in their jaw to adequately support two or more implants.
If you're not familiar with dental implants, they're constructed from titanium posts and surgically implanted into your jaw beneath the gum line. Special attachments located on the denture snap onto corresponding attachments on the implants. Over time and as your mouth heals, the implant and your jawbone fuse together and form a stable root that securely holds the dentures in place. The entire process, including your recovery time, can take anywhere from 5 to 12 months.
For full or partial dentures, the implants work well for retention of dentures. You can eat, speak and laugh with greater confidence knowing that your dentures are secure! Implant-supported dentures over dental implants have been found to have a high clinical success rate and are known for feeling and functioning like natural teeth. Studies have also shown that they preserve the health of your jaw and reduce bone and gum tissue loss.
The dentures made by Kafka Denture Clinic are fabricated in house by owner and registered denturist Cliff Kafka. Implant-supported dentures over dental implants offers you increased comfort and confidence in your smile. Additionally, because of the stability of dental implants, they allow for fewer dietary restrictions. Implant-retained dentures should still be removed and cleaned daily.
Today's dentures are much less noticeable and designed to last longer. Contact our clinic today to schedule a consultation and speak with an experienced, compassionate denturist about your wants, needs and concerns. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you in any way that we can!
