To prevent these issues and preserve your smile, we may offer fixed dentures with implant dentistry. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa, CA, oral surgeons talk about implant dentures.

Major Tooth Loss

We could lose a number of our natural teeth to factors like cavities and infections, or even injury. But the most common cause is periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease that destroys the tissue connecting the teeth and gums. When we suffer major tooth loss, this limits our meal options, makes clear speech difficult, and could lead to dental misalignment as the surrounding teeth drift due to these sudden gaps. The risk of an older appearance and further tooth loss also occurs as the body stops sending doses of calcium and phosphates to the bone tissue around the missing roots. To avoid issues with the health, function, and beauty of your smile, you may need implant dentistry.

Full and Partial Dentures

A full set of dentures replaces every tooth on one or both arches, and a partial addresses multiple gaps in a smile too complicated for a bridge. Both will be custom-made and contain an acrylic base that looks like gum tissue. New teeth crafted from ceramic are then attached, and can look natural and absorb daily bite forces too. A removable full will be held in place with suction or a special adhesive, and the particle is held in place with a set of clasps that are invisible when the prosthetic is in place. However, with dental implants we don’t need suction, adhesives, or clasps. Instead, we attach the prosthetic to a series of dental implants.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is made from biocompatible titanium, and is inserted into the jawbone, where it bonds like a natural root. This means your new teethe are fixed in place and can last for decade sot come, possibly a lifetime. Once we place them, we can connect the prosthetic to them with a series of abutments. You can smile with confidence and enjoy dentures that never slip or require removal for cleaning or soaking.
