How an implant-supported denture from your dentists in Westminster, MD, can give you back your smile

If you have missing teeth or have been wearing a denture for a long period of time, you may be looking at reliable denture options that can restore the strength and beauty of your smile. In these cases, you need to discover implant-supported dentures! Here at Carroll County Dental Associates in Westminster, MD, our family dentists offer this restorative option to boost their patients' oral health—read on to learn more.

What implant-supported dentures can do for you

Although conventional dentures are an excellent tooth replacement option, they do not protect your jawbone from diminishing over time, a factor that can eventually cause the dentures to not fit well. Conversely, implant-supported dentures help maintain this bone presence. In fact, once the dental implants are placed, your body increases bone growth, as the jaw fuses with the implants, locking them in place.

At our Westminster office, our family dentists use the TeethXpress system, which places 4-to-6 implants in the jaw with abutment posts to create a stable foundation for the dentures.

Dental implants and implant-supported dentures are very successful because implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible material that your body won’t reject. In fact, they have a 99% success rate, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Besides compatibility, there are many other reasons why you should choose an implant-supported denture. Consider that an implant-supported denture offers:

  • Complete stability, because thanks to implants, your denture will never move around, even with the most vigorous chewing
  • More youthful facial contours, because implants stimulate bone growth, giving you fullness and volume, and reducing facial sagging
  • Quick results, because TeethXpress treatment can usually be completed in one day

If you want to get your smile back, consider implant-supported dentures with TeethXpress. To find out more, call your family dentists at Carroll County Dental Associates in Westminster, MD, today by dialing (410) 848-5577.
