Can San Ramon, CA area patients use implants to secure their dentures?
At StarBrite Dental in Dublin, CA, patients in and around the community, including San Ramon, CA, have access to a variety of services under one roof. Whether patients are interested in general, cosmetic, or restorative dentistry, Dr. Munira Lokhandwala offers it all! While many patients turn to full dentures for replacing all the teeth within the dental arch, many are unhappy with their lack of stability. This is when our team may suggest implants to provide support.
The use of implant-supported dentures is becoming increasingly popular as patients realize how effective they are in providing stability. Full dentures are often held in place naturally with suction or with denture adhesives. These methods can fail to provide the results patients need to enjoy their favorite foods and speak with confidence. Thankfully, dental implants can be placed into the smile to add a solid foundation for dentures.
How it works
Dentures are made for the patient and designed to work with implants placed along the dental arch. Most patients benefit from approximately four implants for proper support. Implants are placed during oral surgery and then allowed to heal before the dentures are used. Implant-supported dentures are unsurpassed in strength and stability.
Who is a candidate?
Patients with sufficient jaw bone structure and full dentures are considered viable candidates for implant-supported dentures. Patients must also maintain their oral health with regular dental checkups and cleanings at StarBrite Dental Dublin. Determining this is done with:
- Physical examination
- Dental history
