Dentures An Overview
Modern dentures are an effective way to replace several missing teeth or a full arch of missing teeth. Dentures restore the functionality of your mouth and revitalize your smile. At Henrich Dental we specialize in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Using state-of-the-art techniques and technology, we can provide a natural-looking replacement for your teeth.
If you are missing several teeth it can affect your appearance, your speech, and your ability to eat. We can help rebuild your confidence and get you smiling again with a set of full or partial dentures. Dentures can be removable or secured using dental implants. With advancements in dental technology, securing a denture with dental implants is now the preferred way to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Implant secured dentures use strategic implants to hold the denture in place, enabling patients to enjoy a more stable bite and natural looking smile.
Dentures What to Expect
In the past, dentures could be a very frustrating experience. Poorly fit dentures can rub against and agitate the soft oral tissues and are prone to slipping or falling out while the patient eats or speaks. Traditional dentures can also make it difficult for patients to eat a diverse diet of healthy foods.
At Henrich Dental we use state of the art technology, techniques, and materials to ensure you get the functional and cosmetic dentures that you want. Modern dentures are more natural looking and offer a more secure and comfortable fit. Using 3-D imaging and digital scanners, we are able to provide a more precise fit denture that will support more stable long-term oral health.
Dr. Henrich may also recommend securing your denture with dental implants for the most stable and secure fit.
Implant Retained Dentures
Dr. Henrich uses implant dentures to help patients enjoy the best possible results. As few as four dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw by an oral surgeon. Dental implants are made from medical grade titanium that fuses with the jaw bone, effectively serving as a tooth root to stabilize bone tissue. As the implants heal, they integrate with the jaw creating a lasting and stable bond. The implants help promote natural bone regeneration, preventing facial sagging often associated with missing teeth.
Once the dental implants are fully integrated with the jaw, Dr. Henrich will work with you to create a custom designed denture. The denture will be made to look and feel just like your natural teeth. If you have been without teeth or struggling with poorly fitted dentures, implant supported dentures can be life changing.
