At Greenway Dental Care, we offer some of the best tooth replacement options that modern dentistry has to offer in our Fayetteville, AR dental office.
For patients missing a full arch of teeth, we often recommend implant-supported dentures over traditional removable dentures because of the long-term benefits that come with implant-supported dentures. Learn more about the benefits of implant-supported dentures below.
Implant-Supported Dentures in Fayetteville, AR
Dentures are a set of prosthetic teeth designed to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Using dental impressions of your remaining soft tissues, our labs will design a custom denture that closely mimics the previous aesthetics of your smile before tooth loss. Using materials like porcelain, acrylic, and metal, the prosthetic teeth are secured to a base. With traditional removable dentures, an adhesive gel is usually required to get the teeth to stay in place while in use.
A common complaint among long-term denture wearers is denture slippage. Denture slippage can impact a patient’s confidence when wearing their dentures in public for fear that the teeth will slide around while in use. To combat denture slippage, Dr. Keech offers implant-supported dentures in our Fayetteville, AR dentist office. Implant-supported dentures utilize the support of strategically placed dental implants to hold the denture in place permanently. This allows patients to enjoy life without denture slippage, dietary restrictions, or adhesive gels.
Dental implants consist of a surgically implanted titanium post that fuses into your jawbone as it heals and an abutment that secures the post to your dental restoration. Patients may need anywhere from 4 to 8 dental implants to secure a denture in place. Despite the surgical component, this treatment option has a very high patient satisfaction rating due to the long-term benefits that implant-supported dentures offer to patients that they would not have with any other restorative dentistry option.
Patient Review of Greenway Dental Care
“Our daughter Georgia had her first dentist experience at Greenway Dental and enjoyed every minute of it. The hygienist was very patient and gave her a rundown of every instrument she would be using. Everyone was so kind and welcoming. Dr. Keech has a great chairside manner and treated my daughter with respect and patience. Thank you!” – Greg B.
