Significant or full tooth loss may interfere with your diet, speech, and emotional well-being. At Katoomba Dental Centre, we offer tooth replacement options, including dentures and dental implants, to restore function and aesthetics.
We understand that some people don’t like to wear dentures, however, or eventually, stop wearing them because they are uncomfortable and don’t stay in place.
Implant-supported over-dentures mean that you’ll never have to worry about a loose or ill-fitting denture again. This technology merges the practicality of dentures with the innovation of dental implants to give you back your smile.
Your Katoomba dentist surgically places approximately four to six dental implants into your jaw in a minimally invasive procedure. This resolves the shifting issues with dentures, which may allow you to smile with confidence and indulge in a healthier diet. Because there is less irritation of the gum tissue, implant-supported dentures are typically more comfortable as well.
Our Zest Lodi implant system (or implant-supported over-dentures) is a low-cost alternative to All-on-4.
What Is the Process for Implant-Retained Over-Dentures in Katoomba?
Before your dentist gives the go-ahead for any tooth replacement or cosmetic dentistry option, we always provide a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. This typically includes x-rays.
At Katoomba Dental Centre, we’re offering a free consultation to help patients learn whether dental implants are a viable option. We want you to have all the information so you can make the right choice for your new smile.
If implant-retained over-dentures are right for you, we schedule the surgical placement of the implant into the bone.
After your surgery, it usually takes about three to six months for the implants to permanently integrate into the bone. This provides a sound foundation for your over-denture. In some cases, integration may take a bit longer for certain individuals—dependent on bone health, smoking, or certain medications.
When integration is complete, we fix your over-denture to the implants, and your new smile is complete.
Caring for Your New Smile
After we place your fixed denture, we recommend maintaining your new smile just like you did before dentures. You can accomplish this with regular oral health care at home and routine visits to your Katoomba implant dentist. Regular dental exams are critical for tooth and implant success.
