To enhance the stability of your dentures, dental implants can be placed to provide extra support. For more information about dental implants in Abbotsford, at Kafka Denture Clinic, come in for a consultation. 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.
