Dentures are an excellent option for replacing all of the teeth in your mouth, but removable dentures sometimes feel loose or unstable for many patients. Dr. Timothy Gardner and our team offer implant-supported dentures in Conroe, Montgomery, Texas, as an alternative to keep your new teeth in place. Call now to schedule a consultation with our dentist and learn more!
If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for multiple missing teeth, then our dentist may recommend implant-supported dentures. This type of denture is very similar in form to traditional dentures. However, they are stabilized by dental implants. Very often, denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, which limits their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can even retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. The dental implants, which are similar in appearance to screws, are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require four to six dental implants per denture.
