If you need dentures, or already wear them, you can be relieved of anxiety about them slipping around or falling out. At Cheek Dental, we provide affordable dental implants to stabilize your dentures and help you smile with confidence.
Types of Affordable Dental Implants
A dental implant has the structure of a natural tooth. Artificial root forms are surgically implanted in your jawbone, and your dentures are secured to them.
Usually, four to eight standard implants are used to secure your dentures. Below are some facts about snap-on dentures.
- Although they are not as stable as four to eight implants, they are a more affordable option because only two implants are used.
- After your jawbone heals and fuses to the implants, dentures are attached to them.
- The stability makes them feel more like your natural teeth. And it will be easier to speak and eat with them.
- Implants stimulate jawbone and help prevent bone shrinkage, which occurs when all of your teeth are missing.
Mini implants are 1/3 the diameter of standard implant fixtures and about half the cost. As few as two implants can be used to anchor your dentures, but more of them will increase the stability of your dentures. Although mini implants will prevent your dentures from dislodging, they don’t provide the same stability as standard fixtures.
High-Quality Affordable Dental Implants
Dental implants mistakes are common. Poor planning and cheap implant fixtures can lead to dental implant mistakes—or complete failure. If mistakes are made, the implants can loosen, or you can experience significant discomfort, including pain, numbness, and tingling. The implants will need to be removed and completely redone.
Dr. Cheek and Dr. Chandler partner with a periodontist and an oral surgeon—either of whom will perform your implant surgery. But first, your medical history will be thoroughly reviewed to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. Three-dimensional diagnostic studies are performed to ensure the implants are placed in the optimal position to support dentures.
Your dental implants will be restored with high-quality dentures. Either Dr. Cheek or Dr. Chandler can provide you with cosmetic dentures that look completely natural.
