Why Choose First Line Dental for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

Instead of relying on adhesive or suction to stay in place, implant dentures are attached to prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants) that are surgically inserted beneath the gumline. They thus provide outstanding stability and strength.

There are a few main categories of implant dentures:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

Fixed implant dentures, sometimes called hybrid prosthetics, are permanently attached to the implants that support them. They can only be removed by a dental professional. Typically, it takes 4 – 6 implants to provide adequate support for this type of restoration.

Removable Implant Dentures

As their name implies, removable implant dentures (sometimes called overdentures) are easy for patients to remove on their own. They may be secured onto their implants via ball socket attachments or a bar. They usually require fewer implants than a fixed restoration.

The Implant Denture Procedure

From beginning to end, the entire process can take several months to a year or longer. Although it requires a significant investment of time, most patients would agree that the end result is worth it!

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?

In general, candidates for implant dentures are in fair oral and overall health. They should also stick to excellent oral hygiene habits and have a jawbone that is strong enough to support implants. Most adults who have suffered extensive tooth loss are able to receive dental implants in Manchester, either right away or after some preliminary treatment.
