Dentures: a new smile
Dentures can give you a new lease on your smile
Are you missing teeth?
Aren’t a fan of the idea of loose, wobbly dentures slipping and sliding around?
Want a solution that’ll allow you to eat and speak normally without embarrassment?
If you are looking to achieve a new smile, Brisbane Dental Implant Group offers implant-supported dentures. The benefit of implant-supported dentures over traditional denture treatment is that implants provide stability for the denture as well as support for your jaw.
Implant-supported dentures and your smile
If you are missing teeth, Brisbane Dental Implant Group offers a number of options. From implant-supported bridges to implant-supported dentures we have the technology and the specialist team to help restore your oral health.
If you are missing two to four teeth, then either an implant-supported bridge or an implant-supported partial denture may be the ideal solution for you.
The best way to determine which treatment will work for you is to visit us and have a consultation. Our experienced team will assess your oral health, take x-rays and determine the best way to treat your missing teeth.
Dentures: a new smile
When it comes to missing teeth there is no advantage in not replacing them. Missing teeth cause a host of problems such as poor digestion, jawbone degradation, gum disease, misaligned jaw, headaches, neck and shoulder pain. By replacing teeth you can restore the health and appearance of your smile.
At Brisbane Dental Implant Group we offer 3 implant-supported denture treatments:
Why removable implant-supported dentures?
A removable implant-supported overdenture is: After the dental implants are placed in your jaw, a custom-made bar is attached to the implants to support the new overdenture. You can snap or clip your overdenture into place and it is easy to remove for cleaning.
Aren’t all implant-supported dentures implant stabilised?
The difference between a fixed denture and a stabilised denture is:
With a fixed denture only your dentist can remove the denture for cleaning and maintenance. However, with an implant-stabilised denture you are able to remove it and clean it yourself.
Why you want implant-supported dentures
Not only do implant-supported dentures ensure your dentures stay firmly in place, they also provide health benefits to your jaw. When you lose a tooth, the jawbone holding the tooth root in place starts to atrophy: the sooner you replace a missing tooth the less jawbone material you’ll lose.
Also: the sooner you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant you actually decrease the chance of dental implant failure. And while dental implant failure is rare, it has been known to happen.
The leading cause of dental implant failure
The leading cause of dental implant failure is perioimplantitis: gum disease for dental implants. And gum disease is also the leading cause of adult tooth loss. This is why it is so important to maintain your oral health as well as brush and floss your teeth daily.
