If you wear dentures, you have probably experienced the frustration that comes with dentures that come loose or “float.” Not only is this aggravating, it can make eating and speaking difficult. If you need to wear denture adhesive, it can be messy and inconvenient. You might be interested in dental implants, but you may not want to undergo the required surgery and may also want a more-cost effective solution. Our dentists can suggest a compromise: implant-supported dentures.
The first step in your treatment is to anchor the titanium implants in your jaw bone. These implants will hold your dentures in place. On average, four to six implants will be used to anchor your denture. The implants are surgically placed in your jaw and after the sites have healed, the denture can be attached. At our office Dr. Homayoun H. Zadeh employes the VISTA technique, which he has pioneered. VISTA results in enhanced and healthier gum tissue surrounding your implants, which aids in healing and promotes better health. The technique is also a minimally invasive approach to dentistry, lessening the impact of the treatment on your mouth and body.
Implant-supported dentures in Woodland Hills, California, are extremely stable and many people find them to be more comfortable than traditional dentures. In fact, some patients have said that the dentures function and feel like their natural teeth.
