For anyone who has lost all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures from Stewart & Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Comstock Park may sound like a dream come true: dentures that are attached to the jaw, and surpass traditional dentures in appearance and functionality.
You know what they say: if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But set aside any skepticism. Implant-supported dentures are already worn successfully by hundreds of thousands of people.
As you may know, a dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. One post can support one artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a dental arch.
Implant-supported dentures have a number of advantages over traditional dentures:
- More stable. Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
- Natural in appearance. They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
- Built to last. Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
- Prevents bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth rootes, so the bone is preserved.
Implant-supported dentures can transform your life, and they are among the procedures available at Stewart & Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry in Comstock Park. We also offer family dentistry services. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.
