Comprehensive Denture Treatments in Southfield, MI

Tooth decay and gum disease can take their toll on your oral health, leaving you with gaps where teeth once lived. Rather than just dealing with empty spaces in your mouth—avoiding smiling and adjusting your chewing capabilities—allow the periodontists at Michigan Gum Docs to restore your smile. With our comprehensive implant-supported denture options, you’ll not only experience cosmetic benefits, but physical changes as well.

As teeth go missing from your mouth, the remaining teeth begin to shift, causing your facial structure to change and, in some cases, sag. By choosing implant-supported dentures, whether they be fixed or removable, you can finally have rejuvenated confidence in your smile and day-to-day life. Schedule an appointment at our Southfield, MI, practice today to start a consultation.

Overcome Your Dental Anxiety & Enhance Your Experience

When it comes to implant-supported dentures, you have two options to choose from: fixed or removable. Both options offer effective solutions to the challenges associated with missing teeth, yet they cater to different preferences and lifestyles.

Fixed Implant Supported Dentures

This denture option is permanently attached to the dental implants in your jawbone. While you can’t remove the set on your own, your dentist can remove them for maintenance if necessary.

Removable Implant Supported Dentures

Removable dentures are exactly that, removable. This type of denture “snaps on” to dental implants in your jawbone, securing them in place until you’re ready to remove them at any time.

The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

There’s no need to let missing teeth dictate how you live your life. Now, with implant-supported dentures, you can successfully speak, smile, and eat without wondering whether or not your implants will slip or move. Explore the benefits these dental solutions provide to our patients.

  • Less maintenance
  • Improve your appearance
  • Stay securely in place
  • Look like natural teeth

Additional Dental Treatment Options

Implant-Supported Bridges

Implant-supported bridges use dental implants as anchors instead of traditional crowns or frameworks. These implants are placed into your jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation as they fuse with the bone and metal over time. Typically, one implant is placed for each missing tooth, making sure the bridge stays securely in place.

The bridge itself is custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth. Once ready, the new implant-supported bridge is attached to the implants. With an implant-supported bridge, you can enjoy a healthy smile and renewed confidence in your bite.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover damaged or weakened teeth, restoring their strength, shape, and appearance. The crown itself is customized to match the color and size of your natural teeth, creating a seamless blend with your smile. To place a crown, the tooth is prepared by removing a small amount of enamel to create space for the crown to fit snugly over it. This innovative tooth restoration technique can be used to protect a weakened tooth from further damage, restore a broken or decayed tooth, or cover a dental implant.

Implant-Supported Denture FAQs

Similar to other semi-invasive dental procedures, your implant-supported dentures will take some getting used to. For the first week or so, you may experience slight discomfort and irritation as the tissues in your gums heal. Additionally, you’ll want to avoid eating sticky foods, as these can put a strain on the treated area and disrupt the healing process.

Other than the short adjustment period, you can continue your days as usual. Just be sure to continue practicing basic oral hygiene, including brushing twice daily and flossing daily.

The periodontists at Michigan Gum Docs will walk you through all the post-procedure care instructions, including scheduling a follow-up appointment to make sure you’re healing properly.

Your implant-supported dentures’ lifespan depends on your oral health and how well you care for them. In general, these dentures can last anywhere between 10 and 20 years.

Most individuals struggling with multiple tooth loss and periodontal disease are candidates for implant-supported dentures.
