You can replace a full mouth of teeth with dental implants: Sterling Heights dentures systems

Full mouth dental implants available from dentist in Sterling Heights

Full mouth dental implants in Sterling Heights and beyond is another way of referring to a type of denture system. Dentures are mad in several types, and they certainly are no longer like your Grandma’s dentures. By that, full mouth tooth replacement no longer means false teeth soaking in a glass, nor does it mean you’re sentenced to a life of mishaps due to loose or ill-fitting appliances.

Thank you, dental advancements!

Even conventional dentures have come a long way. Earlier-generation plastics were generally not as comfortable or as natural looking as today’s advanced resins, which are flexible and mimic natural gum tissue and teeth in form and function. Improved materials complement improved systems. Dentures can be stabilized with implants. They work similarly to implants to replace a single tooth or a few teeth, in that:

  • Each implant is shaped like a cylinder, because it’s designed to replace a tooth root.
  • Made from a biocompatible material like titanium or zirconium, the implant is placed in your jawbone where it later fuses with the surrounding supportive bone.
  • After the site has healed and the implant is integrated in your jaw, it’s time to place your new tooth or teeth!

In the case of full mouth tooth replacement, you don’t need an implant to support every new tooth. Can you imagine the time in the treatment chair, not to mention the cost? That is simply not feasible, and not necessary. With a little planning, the doctors determine the best sites to place your implants. Strategic placement allows a maximum number of teeth to be supported with a minimum number of implants. It’s a feature that minimizes costs and time. The denture is equipped with special attachments, which securely snap over implants for excellent stability.

We understand you may have a lot of questions about your new teeth or retrofitting existing dentures. We welcome them! Call at  586-838-2017.
