Implant-supported dentures may sound like a dream come true: dentures that are attached to the jaw, and surpass traditional dentures in appearance and functionality. At Karen E. Williamson DDS PA in Rockwall TX, they are a reality!
When it comes to artificial teeth, implant-supported dentures are a whole new ballgame.
Here is the process:
- Examination and Assessment: During your first visit, we take X-rays and assess your mouth and the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbone.
- Implant Placement: Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. Implant dentures usually require four implants per arch. That is, four in the lower jaw and four in the upper.
- Integration: What makes implants so effective is that they actually fuse with the jaw bone. It takes at least a few months for them to fully integrate, a process called osseointegration.
- Final Restoration: Once the implants have fused, they are strong enough to support the final dental arch or arches.
At Karen E. Williamson DDS PA in Rockwall TX, we offer implant dentures, and have placed them in patients from Royse City, Backland, Heath, and Fate. We also offer complete restorative dentistry. Request an appointment today!
