Implant Supported Dentures
Replace Missing Teeth With Our All On 4 Denture Treatment For Cedar Park
If you have teeth missing in Austin, it can cause problems for you emotionally, aesthetically as well as physically. Do you avoid laughing or smiling? Do you avoid activities where you might have your photo taken? Is it difficult to eat?
In the past, traditional dentures were your only option, and while these dentures are still an option, Dr. Brian Scaff offers another treatment that is more permanent, more attractive, and is 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 and within 3-6 months are healed and then dental crowns are placed onto the implants. The denture apparatus is then connected to the dental crowns to form the implant supported dentures unit. Another treatment along these lines is the All on 4 which we discuss further down.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
- Implant supported dentures are remarkably sturdy. Not only that, they look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. The reason why patients around Cedar Park and Austin love these implant supported dentures and Dr. Scaff recommends them so highly is because they don’t have any of the issues present with traditional dentures.
- They are attached to permanent dental implants and do not require any adhesive to stay attached in your mouth.
- Implant supported dentures don’t slip or fall out.
- With implant supported dentures, the dental implants are like real tooth roots so they prevent receding gums as much as when traditional dentures are used.
Same Day Dentures
Dr. Scaff also offers All-on-4 implant supported dentures. All-on-4 dentures use the dental implants to secure the denture apparatus. 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! All-on-4 implant supported dentures give you the opportunity to go from having teeth missing to a set of dentures that look, feel, and function like natural teeth!
