Implant Dentures Mesquite

Creating Permanent, Long-Lasting Smiles

Traditional dentures continue to be a reliable solution for replacing missing teeth; however, their inability to remain stable, difficulty caused when attempting to eat certain foods, and continuous upkeep cause them to be a lackluster decision for many patients. Fortunately, there is another solution that offers permanence, improved functionality, and longer-lasting teeth – implant dentures in Mesquite. At TrueCare Dentistry, Dr. Rana has advanced training in dental implants and continually seeks educational opportunities to further his knowledge. Contact us today if you’re ready to make the switch from dentures to implants or if you want a permanent solution from the start.

What Are Implant Dentures?

Unlike regular dentures that only sit on top of the gums and rely on your natural suction to remain in place, implant dentures are surgically positioned into your jawbone so that they fuse with this structural area to create a firm foundation for a new and improved smile. Relying on anywhere from 4-8 dental implants, these titanium posts support your customized denture when put into place. The fact that more than 500,000 are placed each year is evidence this tooth replacement solution is becoming more and more popular.

There are two types of dentures you and your implant dentist in Mesquite can discuss during your initial consultation:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

As a hybrid prosthesis, a fixed denture uses between 4 and 8 dental implants and cannot be removed unless it is by Dr. Rana or another dental implant dentist. It works and looks just like regular teeth, allowing you to take better care of your smile.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable dentures are another option that is often referred to as “Snap-On Dentures.” Only using between 2 and 5 dental implants, it can easily be removed in the evenings allowing you to clean your prosthetic with ease. This type of denture is often recommended for patients with less jawbone density and is held into place with a bar- or ball-retained device.

The Implant Denture Process

Because Dr. Rana is capable of performing the entire procedure in-house, in one convenient location, you don’t need to worry about another outside specialist attempting to explain what you can expect from the process. Instead, you will:

  • Meet with Dr. Rana for an initial consultation. He will determine if you need any preliminary treatments to better prepare your smile for your dental implants. Bone grafting, periodontal therapy, or the removal of decayed teeth to justify a full denture may be necessary.
  • Undergo dental implant surgery that will involve administering local anesthesia before making multiple incisions in your gums. He will then place each implant in the ideal location. Your gums will be closed before he places a healing cap over each post.
  • Return home to recover for 3-6 months, allowing osseointegration to occur, which is the fusing of the bone and implant.
  • Return to have your metal abutments put into place before receiving your finalized restoration, which will then be secured on top of your dental implants in Mesquite.

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?

If you’re unsure whether you’re a viable candidate for dental implants, don’t hesitate to come in and see Dr. Rana. It is during your initial consultation that he will evaluate your oral cavity and determine:

  • The status of your oral health and if you need periodontal therapy
  • Your overall health, which should be good enough to undergo minor oral surgery
  • If you have enough jawbone density to adequately support your implants and customized denture
