The loss of a single tooth is a threat to your oral health, but the loss of multiple teeth is even more serious. Extensive tooth loss makes it difficult to eat a robust diet, and it can have a negative effect on your self-confidence. Traditional dentures can help with such issues to a degree, but they come with their own downsides. There is a better solution! For most patients, implant dentures in Meriden are the best way to replace a full arch of lost teeth. Contact us today to learn more about this potentially life-changing treatment.

Why Choose Meriden Dental Group for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

While traditional dentures rely on adhesive or suction to remain in the mouth, implant dentures are held in place via prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants) that are surgically placed beneath the gumline. They are therefore much sturdier and have a longer life expectancy than their traditional counterparts.

Depending on the specifics of your situation, your implant dentist in Meriden might recommend one of the following types of implant dentures:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

These are permanently attached to the implants that support them; they can only be removed by a dental professional. It usually takes 4 – 6 implants per arch to support a fixed implant denture.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures, sometimes called overdentures, are easy for patients to remove on their own. They are held in place with the help of ball sockets or a bar attachment. Overdentures typically require fewer implants than fixed dentures.

The Implant Denture Procedure

From beginning to end, the implant denture procedure takes several months to a year. Most patients would agree that the investment of time is well worth it.
