Implant Dentures Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What are the benefits of implant dentures?
Implant supported dentures offer a variety of benefits for individuals with missing teeth, including:
- A more stable alternative to dentures that dramatically reduces the potential for movement and slippage along the gums
- Results that look, feel, and function more like natural teeth
- Improved speaking and chewing
- Less dietary restrictions
- Less potential for bone loss
- No messy putties, pastes, or adhesives necessary
- Enhanced comfort
- Easier maintenance when compared to traditional dentures
Does the implant denture procedure hurt?
In most cases, an implant denture procedure should be no more uncomfortable than most other types of dental procedures. A local anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to minimize the potential for pain during the implantation process. Our practice also offers a range of sedation dentistry techniques that can help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during treatment.
How long do the results of implant dentures last?
Dental implants are designed to fuse to the jawbone and become a permanent fixture in your mouth, mimicking the function of a natural tooth root. This procedure offers a long-lasting solution to missing teeth that should not require retreatment.
How much do implant dentures cost?
Every patient has unique needs and goals, which makes the total cost of implant dentures dependent on each individual treatment plan. When compared to a full set of dental implants, implant dentures typically offer patients a significant cost savings. Factors such as the complexity of the procedure, how many dental implants will be necessary to successfully stabilize the dentures, the materials utilized, the dentist’s experience, and other components will ultimately be taken into account. In general, the cost can range between $1000 and $4000 per implant, plus the cost of the denture appliance; however, as noted above, the price of implant denture treatment varies greatly based on one’s individual needs. After your treatment plan has been created, a member of our team will produce an overall price estimate and talk with you about your options.
