Do you wear Traditional Dentures?
Do you wear traditional dentures? Are you able to eat, talk, laugh and smile with confidence? Our passion at Contemporary Smiles Dental is to help restore these essential elements of everyday life to our patients who are finding their traditional dentures inconvenient and sometimes awkward.
What Are the Pros of Implant Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures offer a considerable number of benefits for suitable patients, including the following:
- Preservation of jawbone density, strength and appearance,
- The results appear very natural,
- An exceptionally secure and comfortable fit for the patient,
- No messy pastes, gels, or adhesives needed,
- The ability to eat all types of food,
- There are numberous other advantages that may apply, depending on your particular case. Implant supported dentures also come at a more affordable price tag than a full set of dental implants.
“Restore your ability to eat, talk, laugh and smile using modern dental implant technology to enhance your life with dentures.”
“Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and can last a lifetime with correct maintenance.”
“Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures anchor directly to your jawbone using dental implants. As a result, they offer more stability for chewing and speaking.”
Frustrated By Dentures?
People lose their teeth for a variety of reasons over their lifetime and we have seen first-hand the impact this can have on our patient’s quality of life.
Do you have to avoid certain foods?
Unsecured dentures can make it difficult to chew some of the foods you once enjoyed due to a lack of stability, especially in the case of the lower full denture.
Do your dentures affect your sense of taste?
The upper denture extends across the palate and this gives more stability compared to the lower denture but this extension can decrease the sense of taste and enjoyment of food and feel bulky and intrusive.
Are you worried your dentures will accelerate your facial aging?
When you lose your teeth, the stimulation to the jawbone is removed and this results in a loss of bone which causes physical changes to your face, which in turn causes your dentures to become looser over time.
Are you embarrassed or lack confidence due to your dentures?
Dentures can sometimes affect your ability to pronounce words correctly, and therefore the way you speak. They may also come loose on occasions which often leads to awkwardness and a lack of confidence.
What are my options?
LOWER JAW SOLUTION (Removable Implant Overdenture)
We place 2 implants in your lower Jaw onto which a new denture is attached. This cost-effective option will significantly improve the retention and stability of your new lower denture. This is one of the most common implant procedures performed at Contemporary Smiles Dental in Corrimal. It is very predictable and allows you to eat, laugh and speak with far more confidence!
UPPER JAW SOLUTION (Removable Overdenture upper arch)
In cases where 4 implants can be placed in parallel within your upper jaw arch, we can provide a more streamlined denture that does not extend across your palate. This provides a higher level of stability and comfort; and an improvement in the taste and enjoyment of food. It will also help to maintain bone levels which will slow the facial ageing look often associated with the loss of teeth and wearing traditional dentures.
FIXED IMPLANT SUPPORTED BRIDGES (Upper or lower jaws)
This solution is the closest thing we can offer you that mimics the natural dentition (natural teeth). It is fixed to 4 or more underlying implants, maintains underlying bone and the bridge can be fitted within 2 days of placement of implants allowing our patients to look, feel and function as normal as soon as possible.
