Permanent Dentures

Denture implants in NYC can treat all of the missing teeth of the upper and lower jaws. Denture implants are also commonly referred to as implant-supported dentures, snap-on dentures, or snap-in dentures. Tooth loss affects your ability to eat and speak properly and can even cause you to feel self-conscious when you smile. Previously, people who’ve lost teeth could only turn to traditional dentures. Unfortunately, traditional dentures affect your quality of life, can easily become dislodged, and can even result in jawbone loss. Denture implants are successful in restoring your smile and permanently replacing missing teeth.

WHAT ARE DENTURE IMPLANTS?

Implant supported dentures are dentures that are supported by dental implants, which are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Denture implants provide you with a strong bite and proper chewing capabilities. Implant-supported dentures can restore your ability to eat, smile, and talk with ease and confidence. Additionally, denture implants can preserve proper jawbone density, cause less gum irritation than traditional dentures, and are long-lasting. Patients are not required to perform any specialized care for denture implants, as they can be brushed and cleaned like regular dentures. A great benefit is that there is no need for any denture pastes, creams, or adhesives.

An implant overdenture uses pink acrylic at the gums and porcelain or acrylic teeth for the crowns to resemble your natural teeth. You need a minimum of two dental implants to keep implant-supported dentures in place. In the majority of cases, 4 dental implants are often recommended when placing denture implants. Oral surgeons in NYC offer three main types of denture implants, including bar-retained denture implants, ball-retained denture implants, and fixed denture implants.

TYPES OF DENTURE IMPLANTS
BAR-RETAINED DENTURE IMPLANTS
These Denture Implants Use A Metal Bar That Runs Along The Natural Curve Of Your Jaw And Connects To The Dental Implants. The Denture Then Rests On Top Of The Bar With The Help Of Attachment Clips.
BALL-RETAINED DENTURE IMPLANTS
These Involve Both The Dentures And Implants Having Attachments That Connect Together Like Press-On Buttons.
FIXED DENTURE IMPLANTS
These Use Dentures That Are Screwed Directly Onto Your Dental Implants.

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR DENTURE IMPLANTS?

Ideal candidates for denture implants are patients looking to replace all of the teeth of the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both jaws. Proper jawbone density is necessary to be a candidate for denture implant surgery. If an oral surgeon determines that you do not have adequate jawbone density, then a dental bone graft may be suggested. A dental bone graft restores jawbone density. Once dental bone grafting has taken effect, the majority of patients have adequate jawbone density and can receive denture implants.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY DENTURE IMPLANT SURGERY?

The process of getting a new set of denture implants starts with a complete dental examination. Your jawbone density and the health of your remaining teeth and gums will be checked. You may need to undergo a dental bone graft if your jawbone has deteriorated to the point that it cannot support denture implants.

Sometimes the first step of denture implant surgery is to remove any remaining teeth. Dental implant posts will be surgically inserted into the jawbone. In many cases, 4 implant posts are used on each jaw. These implants act as a stable foundation for your dentures and replicate the roots of your natural teeth.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY DENTURE IMPLANT SURGERY?

Following denture implant surgery, patients typically feel mild discomfort, tenderness, or soreness around the surgical site. A modified diet of softer foods will have to be followed as your dental implants heal. Any stitches can be removed 2-3 weeks following denture implant surgery. Once you have healed from denture implant surgery, routine dental cleanings are required to maintain the health of your smile, including brushing your dentures twice a day. Use softer toothbrushes or an electric toothbrush, as they make brushing your restorations easier. Floss the part of the implant that shows above the gums. Following denture implant surgery, you will receive detailed post-operative instructions.
