What is an implant denture?

Many patients find traditional dentures uncomfortable and lacking retention. The days and times of small denture teeth and clicking/clacking of dentures is gone now with implant denture options at Schroeder Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lexington, KY.

Implant dentures use implants to anchor the denture securely. The dentures do not move during speaking, chewing or swallowing which is much more comfortable for the denture, and for you!

How is an implant denture made?

First, the man-made root or implant is placed by the dentist where there is an adequate bone to stabilize it. After three to four months, depending on overall systemic health, the implants are uncovered after they have fused with the bone. The denture process begins by anchoring teeth in wax to the implants to test drive the bite, smile, and size of teeth. Next, after patient approval, the dentists fabricate the final prosthesis.

How long does an implant denture last?

Implant dentures are like cars. With routine maintenance and proper care, they can last multiple decades. If they are placed and ignored with zero maintenance, they will last much less time.

How much does an implant denture cost?

Implant dentures can be an affordable, long-term solution when they are done correctly. For example, poor materials and poor craftsmanship will lead to failing implants and broken dentures. In this day and age, you get what you pay for. In this instance, we provide financing options so that if the patient looks at the fee as “cost per year” of having comfortable, stable implant dentures, it is well worth its value.
