Do you need dentures? Most of the time, when a patient contacts our respected Dental Home restorative dentist, they have many questions about the process and care of receiving dentures. Our dentist will advise you on what they professionally consider the best and healthiest option for you. At Dental Home in North Charleston, SC, we offer both fixed dentures as well as Denture Stabilization.

Denture Stabilization

At Dental Home, our staff is very familiar with a procedure called Denture Stabilization. This method virtually eliminates many of the problems associated with complete tooth loss and wearing dentures. Stabilizing or implant-supported dentures are a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. Regular dentures rest on your gums and are not supported by an implant. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw but has enough bone to support an implant. For those patients who have lost a significant amount of bone and lip support, a removable overdenture, which fits “over” the dental implant, will often be the treatment of choice. Studies have confirmed the increase in patient satisfaction resulting from this affordable treatment option because in some cases, biting and chewing capacity is significantly increased, which improves the patient’s nutritional and overall health.

Fixed dentures

Dental implants anchor the replacement teeth directly to your jawbone. Similar to your natural tooth's root, they sit under the gum line and are not seen in the mouth. Only the fixed denture can be seen by you or, for that matter, anyone else. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a metal that has the ability to fuse to your jawbone. They are extremely reliable. How many implants would I need? The number varies because every individual's condition is unique. It depends on the volume and density of the bone in your jaw. You might need as few as four implants or as many as six for your new teeth to work just like a set of healthy, natural teeth.

Here at Dental Home in North Charleston, SC we will serve your denture needs. Call us today at (843) 584-7111 to discuss your options or if you have any questions or concerns.
