Dr. Carl McMillan of Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers understands that missing teeth can have a negative effect on dental health, function, and appearance. This is why his practice is committed to assisting others with rejuvenation when they visit his office seeking solutions. At his practice, he reviews with patients the benefits and disadvantages of all the restorative options such as bridges, dentures, and dental implants. Many patients are interested in learning about a more permanent option, especially dentures on dental implants.
Dentures can be used in conjunction with dental implants and provide one of the most effective ways of replacing an entire arch of teeth without worry about stability. Dr. Carl McMillan and his team can educate individuals on the advantages of placing several dental implants within the dental arch for the foundation of full dentures.
Full dentures are used for replacing all the teeth in a dental arch, and are typically fabricated with high quality acrylics and held in place with natural suction or dental adhesives. However, even with proper use, they can still shift and become loose, especially when patients are enjoying some of their favorite foods that may need more strength. Dr. Carl McMillan may suggest the advantages of implant-supported dentures.
In order for patients to benefit from implant-supported dentures, they must first visit Dr. Carl McMillan for a consultation appointment. This is a great time for patients to learn about this type of denture stability. An examination and x-rays may be done to check the bone structure to determine candidacy and placement of the implants in the bone. Approximately four dental implants are placed along the dental arch and then made to fit with full dentures for a complete restoration.
