Historically, dentures have provided people with the ability to chew harder foods rather than softer ones like bananas and mashed potatoes as we get older. They have also provided us with the ability to flash more confident smiles. Natural tooth loss is a part of growing older. Over time we all start losing teeth due to a variety of reasons like: injury, tooth decay or periodontal disease among many others.
Decades ago it was considered normal to lose your teeth as you grew older. Missing teeth however deprives you of the ability to chew certain foods while trying to stay healthy. Today however, Summit dental patients with missing teeth are fortunate to have a tooth replacement option that is far better than both traditional dentures or Boise crowns and bridges. In fact, Boise tooth implants provide the total package when it comes time to replace the visible part of the tooth as well as the root.
People who wear dentures understand how unstable, irritating, embarrassing and inconvenient they can be. With Boise tooth implants, a super-strong titanium post is anchored directly into the jawbone. An abutment is then attached to the post. Finally a crown is attached to the abutment.
Eliminates gum irritation caused by traditional dentures.
No denture relines
No denture adhesives
Prevents jaw muscle dysfunction
Keep in mind that Boise tooth implants are anchored into your jawbone just like natural teeth. People with one or two missing teeth can replace each missing tooth with a permanent implant. Those with more significant tooth loss are usually best served with an implants-anchored denture. Below are some available options when considering Boise tooth implants:
Complete dentures are difficult to wear, at best. Boise tooth implants can be used underneath removable dentures to eliminate many of the problems associated with traditional dentures. Four implants under an upper denture hold it securely so that the size of the plate can be reduced, removing the palate from the denture altogether and the need for messy adhesives!
For people who don’t want to take their dentures out every day, non-removable implant supported dentures may be an option. This treatment requires more implants than a removable implant denture. The denture is screwed onto the implants. The final result is a much more natural feeling set of new teeth. Normal chewing forces are completely restored, and you never have to take your teeth out!
An entire mouth can be rebuilt using dental implants to support replacement teeth. The most natural results are achieved when a beautiful porcelain Boise crowns and bridges treatment is used in conjunction with precise implant placement. Usually, 6-8 implants on the upper and 4-6 implants on the lower are used to support an entire set of porcelain teeth. The teeth are then cemented or screwed in and they look and feel just like real teeth.
