Implant-Retained Dentures – Towson, MD

Get the Security of Implant-Retained Dentures

Now, several innovations allow us to preserve natural teeth for longer than before; however, tooth loss is still a prevalent problem. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates at least 35 million Americans do not have any remaining natural teeth. If you are among those with an incomplete smile, you have likely tried dentures. Although they improved your ability to chew and speak, you are still not satisfied. If you want an option that closely looks and feels natural, dental implants in Towson can help. With implant-retained dentures, you will enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Implant-retained dentures differ from conventional treatments because they do not use suction or an adhesive to hold your arch in place. Instead, an average of 4 implant posts are surgically placed into your jawbone. They act as new tooth roots to stimulate the bone, encouraging new growth. This allows your jawbone to fuse to the posts. As a result, they have the potential to last forever and provide a stable foundation for your prosthetic teeth.

When compared to traditional dentures, you will enjoy many advantages with dental implants:

How Does it Work?

Model of implant-retained dentures

There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. Your dentist in Towson will determine which one will best meet your needs to hold your acrylic denture in place. We craft the base to match your gum tissue while we use porcelain or acrylic teeth to create a natural look.

Bar-Retained Dentures

2 to 5 implant posts attach to a thin metal bar that follows the curve of your jaw. The bar is fitted with attachments to allow your denture to fit over it and clip into place.

Ball-Retained Dentures

Individual implants hold metal abutments that connect to attachments on the denture. The method features a ball and socket system to fit together.

Understanding the Cost of Implant-Retained Dentures

There is no set price tag for implant-retained dentures because the amount is based on your individual treatment plan. There are several things that may influence the cost, such as the type of abutments used, the number of implant posts needed, and your dental coverage.

Your treatment is broken into two phases: the placement of your posts and the restoration process. Each step will feature different costs. While it may cost more upfront than traditional dentures, they provide you with a long-term cost-effective solution.

Caring for Your Implant-Retained Dentures

Your new smile can last for several decades. To promote their longevity, it is best to care for them properly.
