Dentures are restorative dental treatments that can replace rows of consecutive missing teeth in different areas of the mouth or full arches of missing teeth. Patients can benefit from traditional dentures that provide false teeth that improve the smile’s aesthetic. Implant-secured dentures are a modern alternative that uses small titanium posts to secure false teeth in the mouth. Dr. Anthony Yaldo offers dentures for patients at Orchard Lake Dental Care in Keego Harbor, MI.

Traditional and Implant-Supported Dentures

Partial dentures are false teeth that replace rows of consecutive missing teeth, typically in different areas of the smile. Full or complete dentures can restore all of the teeth in the lower and upper tooth arches. Traditional dentures are removable and lay on top of the gums. They’re typically what patients think of when they think of dentures. However, dentures can also use dental implants for support. Dental implants are small cylindrical posts made of durable titanium. An oral surgeon can place implant posts in key areas of the smile to support dentures and support false teeth at the root. Implants often offer long-lasting results because the posts fuse with the bone tissue in the mouth to become a stable foundation for restorations.

Treatment with traditional removable and implant-secured dentures differ in total treatment time. While implants may take more time and preparation, they offer more lasting, durable results. Patients who receive traditional dentures only need minimal preparation and impressions to create removable appliances.

We work with oral surgeons to place dental implants before we take impressions for the custom dentures. After the surgeon places the implants in the jaw bone, it can take three to six months for the implants to heal and stabilize. Some patients may also require bone grafting treatment to ensure that they have enough healthy tissue for the implant posts. However, patients can eat and speak comfortably once they receive their final dentures.
