Missing all of your teeth can significantly impact your lifestyle. And while conventional dentures are a popular method of replacing missing teeth, they can be uncomfortable and slip when you eat or speak.
At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center in Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico, we can perform every stage of treatment to give you stable, secure implant-supported dentures.
What makes implant dentures a better choice than removable restorations?
Both traditional and implant-supported dentures can replace one or both dental arches. However, traditional dentures only replace the portion of the tooth above the gum line. In contrast, implant-supported dentures are secured by titanium implant posts which are surgically placed into the jawbone. As a result, implant-supported dentures replace both tooth and root.
Implant-supported dentures offer other distinct benefits, including:
Our Los Algodones office takes extra measures to ensure that your restoration looks and feels natural. Every restoration is completely customized to your smile in order to maximize comfort and durability.
While traditional dentures are a common, affordable solution for patients who have suffered substantial tooth loss in one or both dental arches, Dr. Jose Valenzuela typically recommends implant-supported dentures when possible. This is because restorations supported by dental implants offer greater stability and protect against jawbone atrophy.
At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry Center, you can rest assured that you will receive high-quality dental care that is tailored to your needs. Dr. Valenzuela can evaluate your smile and provide all aspects of your treatment at our office in Los Algodones, Baja California, Mexico.
Implant-supported dentures are affixed to implants which anchor your restoration directly to your jawbone.
While Dr. Valenzuela highly recommends implant-supported dentures because of the many benefits they provide, they are not appropriate for every patient. You must have sufficient jawbone tissue in order to support dental implants. Unfortunately, jawbone atrophy is very common in the wake of missing teeth. Consequently, many patients lack the bone tissue needed to support dental implants.
However, our team can perform a bone grafting or sinus lift to supplement recessed tissue and improve your candidacy for dental implants. During your consultation, Dr. Valenzuela will evaluate your oral health to determine the best solution for you and establish your customized treatment plan.
Traditional dentures may be a more cost-effective treatment up front. However, receiving dental implants can significantly reduce the need for future dental treatments. The cost of your implant-supported denture can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors.
To help cover your out-of-pocket expenses, we accept third-party financing through several lenders. One of our team members can educate you about your options to help you overcome budgetary restrictions.
