Do Implants Work with Dentures?

Dental Implants are revolutionizing dental work. Your dentist is able to not just place a false tooth, but place a false tooth root. Dental Implants are not the part you see, but the very important part that you don’t see. Using dental implants, your dentist can replace a single tooth, or secure a denture device replacing all of your teeth on either your upper or lower arch. At Nobel BioCare, we wanted people to not just visually replace their teeth, but to be able to forget that they had ever lost their teeth. To do this, we needed to recreate the base, to build up the tooth from the bottom to the top. Dental Implants are that firm base that will give you a secure tooth.

How Do Implants Work?

When considering your natural teeth, and how they work, you need to understand the physiology. There are multiple pieces that make the entire unit functional. There is a jawbone, which the tooth root extends from. The tooth root is a solid bone base that the tooth then extends from. When a tooth is lost, the tooth root is also lost. What many people may not understand is the importance of the tooth root, and that the loss of it is significant to your oral health.

The root of your tooth serves as a middle man, it takes the pressure that your tooth experiences when chewing and speaking, and passes that pressure to the jawbone. This motion is exercising your jaw bone. Like any part of your body, your jaw requires exercise to stay healthy. This is why placing false teeth without replacing the root will not work. Your dentist can place a bridge that relies on neighboring teeth for support, or place a denture that is held in place with clasps or suction, but this only band aids the problem. Your jaw will deteriorate and shrink through absorption. The problem still exists.

To truly restore the tooth, you need to replace the root. A dental implant is the replacement root, that your dentist can then attach a replacement tooth too. A dental implant is a metal post, it is made from titanium and resembles a screw in look. This post has the unique properties that allows your body to naturally heal around it, permanently bonding it to your bone. A natural process called osseointegration is the bonding to the bone. Once fully healed, the implant will be strong, stable and permanently in place. This solid foundation can then be built on, placing a crown, a bridge, or a denture to.

Attaching a Denture Device to Dental Implants

Nobel BioCare has created implant devices to permanently attach your denture device. Using between four and six dental implants, your dentist can secure your denture, helping them feel and function like your natural teeth once did. You no longer have to worry about your denture coming loose, or restricting the types of foods you eat to accommodate your denture. Your dentist can increase your comfort and your function, by securing your denture to your jaw with dental implants.

Important safety information
Treatment with dental implants is a surgical procedure and requires prior evaluation by your dentist to make sure your dental and general health permits dental implant treatment. Find out more.
