Are Dentures Secured By Implants The Solution For Your Missing Teeth?

Salt Lake City dentures secured with implants

Implant-supported dentures are held in place with permanent metal posts. They are far more stable than conventional dentures and have improved the lives of thousands of people. Implant-supported dentures are available at The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City.

How are the posts inserted?

The implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone.

The patient is given time to heal. During this period the post integrates with the jaw bone in a process called osseointegration.

Once healed, the tooth implant patient returns for a final placement of his/her new permanent dentures.

Who is a suitable candidate for dentures secured by implants?

When considering whether to get implant secured dentures, conventional dentures, or some other restoration option, the number of teeth missing will be a determining factor. If you have experienced excessive tooth loss but still have good bone then you may be an appropriate candidate.

For patients with one or two missing teeth, an implant for each missing tooth may be a better option. Each post would have an abutment (connecting piece) and crown attached.

People with three or four adjacent missing teeth may consider two implants affixed to a dental bridge. This configuration is similar to dentures secured by but the bridge covers less gum tissue at the location.
