Offering Dental Implant Supported Dentures at DFW Absolute Dental
Stability and Comfort with Implant-Supported Dentures
Restoring confidence; improving function; enhanced aesthetics; and, providing comfort. Dr. Shahdad and the team at DFW Absolute Dental believe these are vital factors in delivering the best possible oral health care. This belief is reflected in the products and services offered at their Plano office, to include implant-supported dentures.
What are Dental Implants?
Implants are small titanium posts that act as a secure base for new dentures. The implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, and take the place of the natural root. Once the implants are set, an abutment is fitted to the post, onto which the new dentures are placed.
Titanium implants benefit the patient by fusing with existing bone, the process is known as Osseointegration. The process decrease the chances of infection and helps prevent future gum disease. Dental implants are also beneficial to neighboring teeth because implants are individually placed. Unlike bridges which require work on multiple teeth sites, implants only require work on the tooth that is to be replaced, which decreases recovery time.
A dental implant-supported denture plate provides patients with multiple benefits:
Long-Term Stability – The materials used for both the dental implants and the dentures are extremely durable and resilient; a dental-implant can last a lifetime!
Function – Eliminates pain caused by ill-fitting dentures; implant stabilizes dentures enabling a full range of motion, and the ability to bite, chew, speak, and smile with confidence. With implant-supported dentures there are no diet restrictions to adhere to.
Health – Enables regular dental hygiene practices; restores chewing capacity that stimulates the gums and jaw, decreasing the risk of future oral health issues.
Safety – Eliminates the need for unnecessary adhesives and more invasive therapies.
Bone Preservation – Preserves the remaining bone and maintains the integrity of the patient's facial structure.
Aesthetics – Re-establishes lost lip support and therefore minimizes the appearance of early signs of aging.
Confidence – Better fitting, secure dentures eliminate common issues, such as problems with speech. Implant-supported dentures enable patients to relax in social settings and enjoy their usual activities.
To better serve our Plano, Allan and Frisco communities, DFW Absolute Dental uses the Astra implant system and the Straumann and Nobel implant systems. To determine the best course of treatment for our customers, we thoroughly assess their needs using state-of-the-art technology.
