Dental Implant Dentures Provide Reliability

One of the newest options for replacement teeth is attaching them to dental implants. This provides several benefits that are unavailable with traditional dentures. For instance, because implants are embedded in your jaw, they stimulate the bone much like your own tooth roots do. This means your bone will stay stronger and fuller, so you’ll be less likely to experience the “sunken-in” look that can make you appear older.

Other benefits include:

  • They’ll stay put. You won’t experience embarrassing slippage, and you won’t need adhesives to keep your implant dentures in place.
  • They’ll feel and function more like your own teeth. You’ll enjoy bite strength similar to what you had before you lost your teeth.
  • They’re easy to care for. Depending on the type of replacement teeth you choose, you won’t need to remove them for cleaning. You can just brush and floss as usual.

Dr. Betts works closely with a local surgeon who places dental implants. Once you get your implants and your mouth has healed, you’ll come to Dr. Betts for your replacement teeth.

Replace Your Teeth With Dentures Right After Your Extraction

Dr. Betts can also fit you for traditional dentures, either full or partial. If you never want to be without teeth, he can provide immediate dentures for you to wear right after your teeth are extracted. While you’ll still need to get a final set of replacement teeth, you’ll be able to enjoy normal oral function and a nice-looking smile while you heal.

Dr. Betts can also handle your tooth extraction for you. He’ll use local anesthesia to keep you comfortable, and you can also get inhalation anesthetics, or laughing gas, to stay relaxed throughout the procedure.
