Denture Implants

While every effort is made to make a good and functional denture, it is sometimes hard to achieve a stable and retentive denture. This can causes soreness in the gums and difficulty chewing.

For patients looking for a more stable denture option Total Dental Care in Guntersville, AL offers denture implants.

It normally takes a few phases and several months for your dentist to complete the treatment.  In the first phase, your dentist will place the implants in your jaw bone. It requires 3-6 months for the bone to fuse to the implants.

In the 2nd phase, your dentist will place an extension or a post to extend the implants above the gum this process can also be performed during the first phase depending on the technique chosen by your dentist.

After your gums are healed, it is time for an impression to be made and a final restoration or appliance to be fabricated by the dental laboratory. In most cases, on your final visit, the restoration or the dental appliance is placed and adjusted to insure proper fit and function.
