Do you want to replace multiple missing teeth or even all of your teeth with a stable dental restoration? Dr. Sara and Dr. John Gotwalt provide implant dentures to patients in Lititz, PA.
Removable dentures sit on top of the gum and can slide around, even if adhesives are used. Dental implants do not require adhesives and replace teeth at the root. Multiple dental implants can even be used to replace a full upper or lower arch of teeth. Typically, four to six implants can secure an arch of prosthetic teeth. But what are the benefits of implant dentures, and what does treatment with implant dentures look like?
Benefits of Implant Dentures
Compared to removable dentures, many more patients benefit from receiving implant-secured dentures. Implant dentures:
- Do not slip around the mouth
- Enhance the aesthetics of patient’s smiles
- Stop gum irritation
- Do not come with dietary restrictions
- Improve tooth and gum health
If you are missing multiple teeth or even an upper or lower arch of teeth, call Drs. Gotwalt for implant care. They will help create a custom treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Implant Dentures in Lititz, PA
Dr. Sara and Dr. John Gotwalt offer implant-secured dentures that provide stability for patients with multiple lost or missing teeth. To begin treatment, Drs. Gotwalt ensure that patients have enough jawbone left to support multiple implants. If not, they may recommend a sinus lift or bone grafting. These procedures allow patients to receive dentures easily and comfortably.
Then, Drs. Gotwalt determine where to surgically insert the dental implants. A single row of dentures may be secured by four to six implants. After the implants are inserted, they fuse to the jawbone over a period of 3 to 6 months. This process is called osseointegration and allows the implants to be anchored in the mouth. Then, the prosthetic denture is attached to the implants.
