Implant Supported Dentures in Melbourne
If you are living with the daily challenges of tooth loss, you are not alone. In fact, more than 36 million adults in the United States do not have any remaining natural teeth. If you are among those who are in this situation, you have probably given dentures a try; however, they just did not feel or fit quite right. Although you may feel like you are out of options, Dr. Ronald E. Richardson has the solution you need. With implant-supported dentures in Melbourne, you will regain a complete smile with an option that closely looks and feels natural.
Benefit from the Security of Dental Implants
Implant supported dentures use dental implant posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to hold the denture arch in place. This provides many amazing benefits that are not possible with more traditional options. In fact, they can even provide you with a lifelong solution as they have the potential to remain in place forever with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene.
Dental implants offer over a 95% success rate due to the use of the implant posts, which are surgically placed into the jawbone. The body naturally accepts the biocompatible material as it stimulates new bone growth. This allows the jawbone to fuse to the implant posts while also stopping bone loss. This allows it to be the only tooth replacement option to preserve the bone density in your jawbone. After the jawbone has healed, you are fitted with a custom-made denture arch, which will feature the prosthetic teeth. It is then attached to the dental implants, restoring your smile.
Experience the Difference with Dental Implants
With the use of the implant posts, you gain security and confidence that are not possible with traditional dentures. You do not have to worry about any slipping, irritation, or discomfort because they will stay firmly in place. You can eat what you like and smile with ease because they will not go anywhere.
Since fixed dentures take the full force of the bite, it is absorbed through the implants and into the jawbone. This provides you with the most natural and effective bite possible. In fact, when compared to traditional dentures, they have an increased biting force of over 70%.
