Would you like to eliminate the problems associated with wearing traditional dentures? Our implant-supported dentures in Chantilly can offer you stable dentures with superior aesthetics that will improve your ability to eat and speak clearly.
These are dentures that attach to implants, instead of resting on your gums. We offer our patients bar-retained or ball-retained dentures. Each has a life-like acrylic base and either acrylic or porcelain teeth. Our dentist will discuss both options with you and help you decide which option is right for you.
With bar-retained dentures, also known as an overdenture, a curved bar rests on the implants abutments and the denture is attached to the bar with clips. Ball-retained dentures use a ball-and-socket system so they fit securely and are suitable for upper dentures.
If you’re getting either bar-retained or ball-retained dentures, the process will take several visits. On the first visit, our dentist places the implants. On the second visit, our dentist places the abutment on top of the implant and attaches the denture. There is generally a three to six month wait between visits to give the implant time to fuse with your jawbone.
The cost of denture implants varies. Our fee depends on the type of how much preliminary work you need, including extractions and new dentures. Our fee also varies based on the type of denture you select, either bar-retained or ball-retained. If you have dental insurance, your plan may cover a portion of the cost of our affordable quality implant-supported dentures. Call our office to request a consultation and our dentist can provide a quote for your implant-supported dentures cost after accessing your needs.
Your implant-supported dentures enable you to have a meal with your colleagues and laugh heartily without worrying about your dentures clicking or slipping. Eating your favorite foods is easier as dentures supported by implants replicate a natural bite because the implant acts as a tooth root, absorbing the force of your bite. Moreover, when you eat, you will stimulate the implants, which helps preserve your jawbone.
Clean your implant dentures and the abutments with a soft-bristled toothbrush twice a day. This will help your denture last for many years. Our dentist may recommend specific products for you to use that will help prevent bacteria from accumulating in your mouth.
Implant-supported dentures look and feel more like natural teeth when compared to traditional dentures. They offer support to lips and cheeks; traditional dentures lose their ability to provide support over time, giving your face a sunken look. Implant-supported dentures allow you to bite into an apple, eat a steak or have any of your favorite foods without worrying about slipping dentures. Moreover, implant-supported dentures are more comfortable than traditional dentures.
