Implant Dentures – Lovell, WY

The Best Way to Address Extensive Tooth Loss

If you have suffered extensive tooth loss, you may face a number of daily challenges. Perhaps it is difficult to eat all of your favorite foods. You might even hesitate to smile in public due to being self-conscious about the appearance of your mouth. Traditional dentures can help with such issues, but only to an extent. Plus, they come with their own set of problems. Implant dentures in Lovell offer a superior solution.

Why Choose Lovell Dental for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

While traditional dentures simply rest on top of the gums, implant dentures are anchored in the mouth via prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants in Lovell). They are thus much sturdier and feel more natural than traditional dentures.

There are two main types of implant dentures:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

As their name implies, these are permanently attached to the 4 – 6 dental implants that support them. They can only be removed by a dental professional. Many patients enjoy the convenience of always having their new teeth in their mouth.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures, also known as overdentures, are easy for patients to remove on their own. They are secured in place via ball or bar-shaped attachments. They usually require fewer dental implants than fixed dentures. In some cases, it is possible to retrofit a traditional denture to work as an overdenture.
