Replace Missing Teeth By Using Dental Implants
If you live in Austin and have missing teeth, you’re probably aware that these missing teeth can cause problems for you emotionally, aesthetically, and physically. Do your missing teeth make you avoid laughing or smiling? Do you avoid activities where you might have your photo taken? Is it difficult to eat?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, schedule an appointment with us. We’ll have you smiling confidently again and eating the foods you love in no time.
What Makes Implant-Supported Dentures Different?
In the past, traditional dentures were the only option for multiple missing teeth. While these dentures are still an option, Dr. Brian Scaff offers another treatment that is more permanent, more attractive, and more comfortable at his practice near Round Rock. This treatment is implant-supported dentures.
Implant-supported dentures are a denture apparatus that is connected to dental implants. Dental implants are metal posts placed into your jaw. These posts heal and become a part of your jaw within 3-6 months.
Dental crowns are then placed onto the implants. The denture apparatus is connected to the dental crowns to form the implant-supported dentures unit.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
There are plenty of good reasons to try our implant-supported dentures. They’ll leave you looking and feeling great!
- Implant-supported dentures are remarkably sturdy.
- They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
- They are attached to permanent dental implants and do not require any adhesive.
- Implant-supported dentures don’t slip or fall out.
- With implant-supported dentures, dental implants are like real tooth roots, so they can prevent receding gums.
Our office also offers the All-on-4® treatment concept. Dentures that are used with this treatment concept require only four dental implants for a secure fit.
However, the denture apparatus is placed onto the dental implants only after 24 hours of the implants being placed, so you will have dentures within one day! Implant-supported dentures with the All-on-4® treatment concept give you the opportunity to go from missing teeth to a set of dentures that look, feel, and function like natural teeth!
