When people think about dentures, there are three words that quickly come to mind:
Implant-Supported Dentures in Greensburg, PA
Dentures just aren’t for you. They click when you talk, are hard to maintain, and you’re constantly afraid that they’re going to fall out when you’re in public.
Greensburg, PA patients are in luck, because whether they’re missing one tooth or all 32, Dr. Del Kovacevic offers affordable tooth-replacement treatments—quickly and easily.
Implant-supported dentures share characteristics of both traditional dentures and dental implants. They’re used to replace a full arch of teeth and are a single, removable unit situated on top of titanium posts.
Many people prefer implant-supported dentures to traditional dentures because:
- They won’t slip the way that traditional dentures do.
- They afford less dietary restrictions and allow patients to eat their favorite foods.
- They don’t cover the full palate, leaving the roof of the mouth free.
- They support healthy jawbone growth, keeping it from deterioration.
The Quick and Easy Process
When you imagine getting a full arch of teeth replaced, you may grow nervous or anxious. But really, it’s never been easier for patients to smile with a new set of prosthetic teeth.
First, you’ll visit our Greensburg, PA office where Dr. Kovacevic will surgically place the implant posts. You’ll be under general anesthesia, meaning you’ll be completely asleep during the procedure and won’t feel a thing. Dr. Kovacevic will place four to six titanium posts in your jawbone, which will serve as the strong foundation for your new denture.
Once those are placed, you’ll have temporary dentures while your mouth heals. It will take a few months for your jawbone to fuse with the posts, so you’ll have to go easy on your mouth during the healing process.
The Denture Placement
After your jawbone is healed and the titanium posts are integrated into your mouth, you will have your custom-made, permanent dentures placed on top. The dentures will be designed to match the shape of your mouth and will look as natural as regular teeth.
And that’s it! You’ll be able to leave that same day with a brand new, strong, and beautiful smile.
