Cost-effective, comfortable, and permanent, implant-supported dentures and bridges can be truly life-changing for our patients with extensive tooth loss. An implant-supported denture utilizes four to six precision-placed dental implants to secure a custom-made fixed dental prosthesis, providing new, lifelike, and fully functional smiles for patients. With fewer implants needed, the time it takes to receive a full set of new teeth is reduced compared to receiving individual implants, and there is less recovery time. Because the implants are placed directly into the jaw to create a sturdy foundation for your new set of teeth, this type of restoration also stimulates the jaw bone and helps prevent the jaw bone deterioration commonly associated with missing teeth. Implant-supported bridges, like implant-supported dentures, are long-lasting, lifelike, and healthy for your jaw. Furthermore, unlike traditional bridges, they do not require healthy teeth to be ground down to support the restoration.
We find that many of our patients who need to replace an entire arch of teeth are good candidates for implant-supported restorations, even if they are suffering bone loss that has kept them from being good candidates for stable individual dental implants. During your consultation with your oral surgeon at Oral Surgery Specialists of Idaho, you will discover if an implant-supported denture or bridge is the best treatment option for you based on your individual condition and your tooth restoration goals. Oral surgery for implant-supported tooth restorations is typically performed in the comfort of one of our Pocatello, Blackfoot, or Preston offices under IV sedation. Your oral surgeon will discuss your anesthesia and pain management options with you in detail during your consultation appointment.
Why choose implant-supported dentures or bridges?
With this type of implant-based solution, you can enjoy a smile that looks so natural, no one can tell you’ve received tooth replacements — none of that clicking, slipping, or discomfort associated with traditional dentures. As specialists in this type of oral surgery, we can provide your new set of teeth in as little as one day. Dental implant-based tooth replacement options are popular at our practice for several reasons:
- Less post-operative healing time, discomfort, swelling, and bruising
- Custom-made and secure replacement for multiple teeth at once
- Prevents bone loss and preserves jaw bone health and facial harmony
- Bone grafting is typically unnecessary for this treatment to be secure
- Can last a lifetime if cared for well
With implant-based tooth restorations, our patients can comfortably enjoy their favorite foods and speak and smile with confidence again. We love hearing about the many positive changes our patients experience once they have fully functional new smiles!
