Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported Dentures represent the most stable and secure option out there for denture wearers. By using implants to support the dentures, you will no longer need to worry about your dentures slipping or coming loose. They will “snap” into place and hold firm until “you” are ready to take them out.
How are dentures made?
The process starts by taking a series of impressions or molds of the oral tissues that will support the denture. A dental lab will use these impressions to make models of the patient’s mouth. Centennial dentures and the laboratory technician will then slowly start building the dentures on these models and transferring them to the patient’s mouth at each step to ensure proper fit, establish a proper bite, and ensure that the appearance and esthetics of the denture are desirable. The patient will generally need to be seen by centennial dentist once per week for about 4 to 5 weeks until the denture is complete. The patient will then need to return occasionally during the first month after the denture is delivered to have adjustments made.
Alternatives to Dentures
There are two other ways missing teeth can be replaced, with bridges and implants.
Bridges: A bridge replaces missing teeth by placing crowns on the teeth next to the space and attaching a fake tooth to both of the crowns. Bridges can only replace about two to three missing teeth in a row, depending on the location. Since bridges are cemented in place, they are considered a “fixed, or permanent denture.”
Implants: An implant is a metal post that is inserted into the bone of the upper or lower jaw. This post is then used to replace a single tooth by attaching a crown to it, or multiple teeth by attaching a bridge to multiple implants. Implants are the most expensive option for tooth replacement, but implants simulate natural teeth better than any of the other options.
Does dental insurance cover the cost of dentures?
Most dental insurance companies cover some or all of the cost of centennial dentures, making them very affordable.
