Implant-Supported Dentures in Vienna, VA
Are you frustrated by dentures that shift and slip, causing embarrassment and irritation? If so, Tysons Dentistry offers implant-retained dentures that may be the long-term solution you’re looking for.
DIEM Hybrid Dentures
Sometimes referred to as “Teeth in a Day,” DIEM hybrid dentures combine the function of a denture with the stability of dental implants. We can replace missing and/or non-restorable upper and/or lower teeth with fixed dentures.
A hybrid denture is specially designed to snap onto dental implants to secure the denture in place. The entire process is coordinated between our doctors, an oral surgeon, and a lab technician who prepares your dentures. You will be able to return home the day of surgery with a prosthesis that looks aesthetically pleasing and functions normally.
Some of the benefits of this type of denture are:
- It can be placed in one day. We place the implants and, during the same visit, attach the specially designed denture.
- Since the dentures are permanently attached to the implants, worries of slipping and awkward accidents are a thing of the past
- They are a fixed solution. In other words, you won’t have to worry about removing them for cleaning.
- With immediate placement of both implant and denture, you won’t have to suffer the embarrassment of going without teeth.
- Fixed hybrid dentures allow you to quickly regain confidence and quality of life.
Studies show that replacing teeth immediately may help preserve oral bone, resulting in dental implant restorations that look and function like natural teeth.
Another effective implant-retained denture we offer is called an overdenture. Overdentures are customized dentures designed to attach to dental implants placed strategically in your jawbone.
Implant-supported overdentures improve stability, specifically on lower dentures. Using advanced 3-D CT scans, a qualified oral surgeon will strategically place two or more implant posts in your jawbone. Over time, the bone and implant integrate and become permanently rooted in your mouth.
The implant and denture have corresponding attachments that snap securely into place using specialized dental attachments that are secured in the roots or implants.
Stability is a big advantage, but another benefit is that implants will make your denture much less bulky. Traditional dentures consist of a plate that covers your entire palate, but an implant-supported denture does not need the plate to hold it firmly in place.
What Implant-Supported Dentures Can Do for You
Just like any removable denture created at Tysons Dentistry, your implant-supported denture will be carefully crafted to complement your overall appearance. However, these dentures will look even more natural, since you won’t have any metal clips, plastic bases, or denture adhesive.
Since they’re permanently anchored in your mouth, implant-supported dentures can restore full oral function. You’ll be able to eat all the foods you love and speak without fear of slipping dentures.
Finally, implants prevent bone recession in your jaw by stimulating growth in surrounding tissues. In this way, your restoration can maintain your natural facial structure contours of your jaw.
