With modern dentistry treatment, smiles are lasting longer than ever before. For patients who have lost all of their teeth, treatment has gotten better too. At Skyline Family Dental, our Bishop family dentist offers custom-made dentures for our patients who are missing all, or almost all of their teeth.
Dentures are full sets of teeth created with high quality porcelain materials. Our dentures look and feel natural, and will restore your smile’s functionality and aesthetic. With our dentures, you’ll be able to smile, laugh, speak, and chew again without difficulty. Each denture set is made individually for each patient and can restore your confidence in your smile.
At Skyline Family Dentistry, we offer full and partial denture sets. Patients can also choose between traditional denture models and implant supported dentures.
Like their name suggests, implant-supported dentures use strategically placed dental implants to secure a patient’s dentures to their gumline. Our implant-supported dentures are removable, but have a more permanent feel than traditional dentures. They’ll never slip, or click out of place. Patients can enjoy social events and gatherings without worrying about their teeth slipping out at an inopportune time.
Implant-supported dentures feel comfortable and secure in your mouth and are easy to take care of and maintain. This makes them a great choice for patients who are missing teeth, because they provide added jaw support and help prevent bone loss and deterioration. We have the technology to place and restore an implant supported denture right in our office. With i-CAT technology, we can place implants with even greater accuracy and precision.
The Advantage of Osseointegration
Patients have asked us how implant-supported dentures could stop bone deterioration, and the secret lies in a fusion process known as osseointegration. Osseointegration occurs when the titanium material in the implant triggers the bone around it to regenerate. The bone weaves fibers around the implant, securing it in place. This not only provides the denture with stability, but also encourage bone regrowth, ultimately reinforcing this important structure.
