Learn More About Implant Supported Dentures

If you have been dealing with tooth loss, you’ve probably heard about dental implants. They’ve become increasingly popular as a permanent option to bridgework that has superior strength and a beautiful appearance. What you might not realize is that implants aren’t just for people who are missing one or a few teeth. Advances in the use of implants has led to the development of implant supported dentures, providing more patients than ever the options of permanent replacements for a full set of teeth.

Facts About Full Arch Dental Implants

Full arch implants have a few benefits over dentures for patients that qualify. Of course, there are also great reasons for dentures, but for those patients looking for a permanent solution that they can care for like natural teeth, here’s the case for implants:

  • Titanium supports ground the implants in the jaw to support the replacement teeth. This makes the implant permanent and strong.
  • Replacement teeth are high quality porcelain, leaving the patient with a clear, white smile.
  • Full arch implants use a limited arrangement of anchors to provide maximum strength and stability with minimal pain and a fast healing time.
  • Implants allow you to resume your regular daily routine without worrying about what you can eat.

Need to Know if You Are a Candidate?

Not everyone qualifies for full arch implants, but there’s an easy way to find out if they will work for you. All you need to do is set up a consultation. Dr. Lugakingira will review your dental records, talk to you about possible complications due to other health issues, and help you set up your path toward the procedure if you are a candidate.

Most people who are not candidates have serious issues which would make bleeding or infection a major concern, or they are missing too much bone tissue in the jaw. For more information, set up an appointment with our office in Fort Wayne, IN today!
