Dentures are usually the first solution everyone thinks of to solve the problem of missing teeth. While they may solve the problem, they are not necessarily the only, or even the best, option for all patients. Dentures and implants are similar in their ability to increase self-esteem, support facial muscles, and aid in chewing and speaking. However, the differences between the two options can mean the difference between feeling good and feeling great. Dentures are removable prosthetics that are created to fit to your gums. They require daily care and are secured to your mouth by an adhesive. Often, patients complain of dentures’ tendency to feel uncomfortable or shift in the mouth. For some, irritation may result in ulcerations on the gums, and over time, some dentures may need to be replaced … more than once! In contrast, dental implants offer a permanent solution to patients with missing teeth. Whether it’s a single implant, implanted supported dentures or full mouth dental implants in Albertville, MN and Spring Lake Park, MN, this solution will help recreate the function and feel of your natural teeth. Requiring no more care than your regular teeth, implants can last more than 30 years! Also helpful in supporting the surrounding bone structure, these wonders of modern dentistry can be implanted in just one appointment, depending on your needs! Offering patients a wonderful middle-ground between traditional implants and dentures, these prosthetics are supported by strategically placed implants, allowing patients to avoid messy adhesives and experience a more comfortable, secure denture. Schedule your free consultation with our team to find out how dental implants can change your life!
A consultation appointment will allow our dentists the opportunity to examine you and recommend the best type of implant surgery for your case. Based on your exam and lifestyle, your dentist may recommend any of the following: full mouth dental implants, single arch dental implants or implant supported dentures.
Our dental team is expertly trained in implant surgeries, as well as in the cutting-edge technology used to accomplish them. The various types of implant services allow our dentists to provide each patient with a tailor-made treatment plan they will love. During your consultation, your dentist will discuss sedation options with you. White Smiles Family Dentistry offers patients oral sedation and nitrous oxide, and our dentists will be happy to advise you on the best option for your surgery.
While you may feel anxious about surgery, be confident in placing your trust in the hands of our expert team. Careful planning and diagnostic imaging will ensure your team is able to resolve potential complications and accomplish your surgery with great success. White Smiles Family Dentistry is proud to offer both the All-On-X treatment plan and Hybridge protocol for our full mouth dental implants in Spring Lake Park, MN and Albertville, MN and full arch dental implant patients. These groundbreaking protocols involve strategically placing implants in the bone custom-made prosthetics to give you the look and function of natural teeth. Depending on your treatment, your surgery can even be completed the same day! Our in-house lab ensures all your products are available for your appointment and made with the greatest care. Once your implants are placed, a temporary bridge of teeth is attached, allowing you to enjoy your implants right away. Your dental team will communicate what you can expect in the coming weeks, and recommend the best ways to aid healing and care for your new implants.
Healing should be completed four to six months after surgery, and you are now ready to receive your final restoration. Depending on your treatment plan, White Smiles Family Dentistry will use polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) or zirconia to create your fixed bridges. Both materials ensure durability, and have become the gold standard in the industry. Your final restoration is created to look natural and fit precisely, so you’ll be able to start living with confidence in your new smile!
