Are you among the 35 million Americans who are missing all their natural teeth? To regain a functional smile, you have tried traditional dentures. While you had high hopes, they did not give you the results you wanted. Although several advancements have improved their fit, they still do not feel natural. At White Clay Dental, we can stop the slipping and irritation using dental implants in Newark. They anchor your denture in place to give you the next best thing to your natural teeth.
Implant-retained dentures do not rely on suction or an adhesive to hold it in place. Instead, an average of 4 implant posts connects it to your jawbone. This allows you to enjoy many added benefits that are not possible with conventional dentures, such as:
Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone to serve as new tooth roots while also creating a secure foundation for your denture. To attach it to the posts, there are a couple of different abutment options that can be used.
Each implant features a metal attachment that fits into those that are on the denture. They are like a ball and socket system to secure your denture to the implant posts.
A thin metal bar is attached to the posts, which follows the curve of your jaw. Clips are featured on the bar to allow the denture to fit over it to be held in place.
There is no set price tag for implant-retained dentures in Newark because there are several factors that influence the price, such as if you need additional procedures and your dental insurance. The cost of the treatment is broken into two phases: the placement of the posts and the abutment and restoration phase.
Although the procedure costs more than traditional dentures, they allow you to make a long-term investment. Your posts should never need to be replaced, so you can enjoy an option that lasts for several decades.
