Implant-secured dentures are a more secure solution for missing teeth replacement.
If you are missing teeth, it is imperative that you find the appropriate tooth replacement solution. For years, the only solution for patients missing a full arch of teeth is to wear a traditional denture.
Traditional dentures are cemented to the mouth using an adhesive paste and removed at the end of each day. Because traditional dentures are secured using a temporary adhesive, patients are more prone to slippage, which can lead to uncomfortable or embarrassing social situations.
However, for patients seeking a more secure solution for tooth replacement, your dentist may offer implant-secured dentures. Implant-secured dentures are a more stable solution compared to traditional dentures. With implant-secured dentures, patients can enjoy their smiles without worrying about slippage.
Columbus dentist Dr. Albert Caves offers a full range of dental implant services, including implant-secured dentures. Visit our Columbus, GA dentist office to determine if implant-secured dentures are right for you.
Why Choose Implant Secured Dentures?
When you lose teeth, the bone in the jaw begins to deteriorate. Patients may experience facial sagging or other complications as a result of bone loss. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution that helps stimulate the bone and encourage natural bone growth. Implant-secured dentures allow patients to smile more confidently, enjoy an improved eating experience, and enhance comfort and confidence.
"Dr. Albert Caves and his staff are amazingly gentle! I had my wisdom teeth taken out by another dentist and I had pain for a month. The other dentist wouldn't do anything so I went to Dr. Albert's office and he helped me. I felt great as soon as I left there. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone! We had to PCS and I can't find another dentist anywhere near as great as he is."Online Review Yellow Pages

Implant Secured Dentures What to Expect
The process for receiving implant-secured dentures will vary from patient to patient. Dr. Caves will evaluate the condition of your teeth and create a treatment plan best suited for your needs. In most cases, Dr. Caves works closely with a local oral surgeon for the surgical phase of the dental implant procedure. Working as a team, they offer patients the benefit of comprehensive, consistent care throughout the entire process.
After the treatment planning phase, your dentist will place the appropriate about of dental implants into the jaw bone. It will take several months for the implant post to fully ingrate into the jaw bone. In most cases, a temporary denture is placed while the dental implants fuse into the jaw bone.
Once the implants completely fuse, impressions of the teeth are taken for the fabrication of the final restoration. Once the final denture is fabricated, Dr. Caves will carefully secure it to the dental implants.
