Do you want a complete smile without the fuss of removable dentures? Are you tired of messy denture pastes and creams? When you were told that you need dentures, you probably automatically thought of the removable kind. Not only can they be uncomfortable, but they can be a distraction for some users. An alternative to traditional dentures are permanent dentures. In Issaquah, our team offers implant dentures for candidates who want a long-term, attractive, functional solution to the problem of missing teeth.
The only way to tell if you are a candidate for implant dentures is to make a consultation appointment with Dr. Kimberly Santiago and Dr. Jed Santiago at Santiago Dental Wellness. You will be fully examined and evaluated to determine if this type of denture is appropriate for your situation. If you do not have the bone density to support the titanium implant posts, a bone graft or sinus lift may be necessary before the implant dentures are placed.
A lot of people have never heard of permanent dentures in Issaquah. This is not surprising, since the techniques used to create them have only been developed and perfected relatively recently. Permanent dentures affix to titanium implant posts that are surgically embedded into the gum and bone at the site of the missing arch of teeth. They look just like they have always belonged in your mouth, and will make your smile more even. Plus, they help keep the bone and gum tissue healthier!
Implant denture surgery takes place over several months. At the first surgery, we surgically embed the posts into your jaw. Then, we allow them to heal for a few months, periodically checking to ensure they look good and are fusing with the bone. During this time, we may provide you with a temporary denture that will attach to the posts. The temporary denture will be replaced with a permanent denture that has been carefully crafted to fit your jaw and look natural. Schedule a consultation and see if implant supported dentures are right for you.
