Treatment for Implant Supported Dentures
Depending upon your dental needs, you may need to undergo preparatory restorative or periodontal treatments before receiving dental implants. If you have insufficient jawbone tissue to support implants, we may recommend a preliminary sinus lift or bone graft for the best results. During your consultation, our team will evaluate your particular dental needs to determine the best course of action. He may also request x-rays or advanced images of your smile, which can help him plan your implant placement strategy.
To ensure a secure foundation, dental implants will be placed prior to your dentures. To begin, your doctor will create a small incision in the gum and create space in the jawbone for your implant post. Once the post is in place, We will close the incision with sutures. Our team will provide you with a temporary denture to wear while your jaw heals. Typically, the entire dental implant process will span over about two and a half months.
Our highly-trained team can help you achieve your aesthetic goals and dental needs, restoring full function to your smile.
Once the post has fused properly, you will have a follow-up appointment with our team, during which we can attach abutments. These devices will connect your dentures to the implant posts. Once your gums have healed sufficiently, which can take about two weeks, we can provide your permanent, customized restoration.
