Living with missing teeth can be difficult, but when you are unhappy with the way your dentures fit or function, it can be downright frustrating. Loose or ill-fitting dentures can make it difficult to bite and chew properly, require gag-inducing adhesives to stay in place and often require repetitive and costly adjustments to fit a deteriorating jaw. At Gentle Dentistry, we offer a solution to your denture woes with dental implant supported dentures in Haworth, NJ. Implant supported dentures utilize two to four dental implants to securely hold a denture prosthesis in place and alleviate most if not all of your denture concerns. Implant supported dentures can also be a good choice for those looking to eventually transition to our Hybridge® full arch dental implant option.
When it comes to placing dental implants, Dr. Andrew Spector and our team utilize some of the latest dental technology to ensure you see successful and lasting results. One of the biggest advantages we offer is guided implant surgery. This combines the highly precise digital images we capture from a cone beam CT scanner with 3D imaging software to create a guide that directs Dr. Spector to the precise angle, depth and position for each dental implant. Pre-planning your surgical appointment with guided implant surgery technology means less time in the dental chair, faster results, and the precise placement of each implant for lasting stability. For those with any level of dental anxiety, we offer IV sedation during your surgery to put any fears to rest and ensure a comfortable, safe experience!
We can either have a new prosthesis created that will support the implants, or we can retrofit your existing denture. The denture itself will connect to the implants securely. In many cases you will still be able to remove your implant supported denture for adequate cleaning and to sleep. But thanks to your new dental implants, your smile will not fall out or shift out of place. In addition to firmly holding the denture in place, your new implants will stimulate your jaw bone to promote healthy new growth and prevent deterioration. This means your jaw will maintain its appearance and you will no longer need to receive denture relines. Stop letting dentures hold you back from a life you love. Contact us for a consultation today!
