Implant-Supported Dentures in Spring Branch, TX
The Modern Solution To Replacing Missing Teeth
In the past, the only solution to replacing a full mouth of missing teeth was acrylic dentures placed over the gums. Unfortunately, traditional dentures had drawbacks. They tended to slip around in the mouth, not only making it difficult to chew, but causing mouth pain and irritation. Moreover, when teeth go unreplaced over a long period time, bone loss results. Thanks to modern technology, these problems have been solved through the use of implant-supported dentures. With such dentures, implants are used to hold your dentures firmly in place. This gives your dentures greatly enhanced chewing power and helps prevent bone loss in your jaw.
Dr. Chavez is highly skilled and experienced in using implants to provide full-mouth tooth replacement – either the top or bottom arch or both arches. He provides fixed-in implant-supported dentures that are aesthetic and have no upper palate, and he provides lifelike snap-in implant-supported dentures, which are removable. In some cases, he can use dental implants to stabilize your existing dentures.
New Teeth in One Day
Dr. Chavez places fixed-in, implant-supported dentures that provide you nearly full chewing power – thanks to a state-of-the-art technique using four specially angled, long implants in each arch. The implants are placed in areas of dense bone, their greater length and angle provides more bone contact and more stability. A full arch of new teeth is attached to the four implants. Because the force of chewing can be distributed evenly in the arch of teeth, Dr. Chavez is able to restore nearly 100 percent chewing ability. Even if you have suffered severe bone loss, you are likely to be a candidate for the New Teeth in One Day procedure. This option is the closest thing to having real teeth. With New Teeth in One Day you are able to eat the foods that you love and which help keep you healthy.
How It Works
Dr. Chavez makes the new teeth out of natural-looking, durable porcelain. As the teeth are firmly and permanently fixed in, there is no need for the artificial upper palate and sides that regular dentures have, and the teeth look and feel very much like real teeth. After your initial appointments with Dr Chavez for diagnostics, planning and creating the denture, you will get any needed extractions, have your implants placed and walk out with a set of temporary, but functional, teeth, in just one day. After your implants have fully integrated with the jaw bone, you will receive your beautiful permanent teeth.
To replace an entire arch of teeth, Dr. Chavez can provide you with an implant-supported denture that snaps in and out. This will give your greatly increased chewing power and helps prevent bone loss. Snap-in dentures are the most economical implant-supported replacement option for a full arch of teeth. Dr. Chavez can place as little as two implants in an arch to provide support. For greater stability, patients can opt to have four implants placed.
