How are dental implants used to maintain the strength of dentures for Woodlands residents?

 In Dentures

Many patients want to restore their beautiful smile, especially those in Woodlands. Dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges are all restorative treatments that are available to the patients of the Woodlands area, and are done at Dr. Dernick’s practice. Some patients may struggle with deciding which restorative treatment to consider after tooth loss. However, with proper education and guidance, patients can work with their dentist to determine the best treatment for their individual situation.

Dr. Dernick offers several restorations in his practice, including those of dental implants. Dental implants can be used to replace single missing natural teeth, or to use in conjunction with full dentures. Patients can benefit from implant-supported dentures.

Full dentures are troublesome for some patients. Some individuals find that they do not stay in place, are ill fitting, and cause sores and irritation to their gums. This is not the goal of dentures. Dentures are supposed to be comfortable, and allow patients to regain their chewing and biting efficiency, as well as maintain a beautiful, natural looking smile. However, when problems arise, there are solutions. When dentures are not staying in place and are causing issues for the patient, Dr. Dernick, DDS, may suggest implant-supported dentures. These dentures utilize dental implants to “snap” the full dentures in place for a strong and stable fit. Patients will enjoy their ease of use, and that they will no longer have to worry about their dentures slipping or falling out of place at the worst possible times!

First, Dr. Dernick, DDS, will determine if a patient is a proper candidate for dental implants. Dental implants require sufficient bone support underneath the gums to be successful. Patients will have several dental implants placed to allow the dentures to fit snugly in place. After properly healing, patients will then be able to use their dentures snapped over these implants for the best possible fit and stability.

Dr. Dernick, DDS, is a warm and compassionate dentist that has the experience patients desire when it comes to the dentist for their family. His team of helpful professionals is ready and willing to help patients improve their smiles and maintain good oral health habits that can extend over the course of a lifetime.
