Given the choice, most people would prefer to keep their own natural teeth. However, that’s simply not an option in some circumstances. For patients who are missing teeth, or for those who need to have teeth extracted for whatever reason, implant dentures provide an excellent solution, which is why Dr. Kaliher is pleased to provide these remarkable dental prosthetics to his Austin, TX area patients.
Top Reasons to Choose Trey Kaliher Dentistry for Implant Dentures & Partials
- Implant dentures & partials are a permanent solution for people who either currently wear traditional dentures, or patients who need to have their existing teeth removed for whatever reason.
- If you fall into the latter category and need to have your existing teeth extracted, Dr. Kaliher offers his patients a variety of different sedation methods. Each of these sedation techniques is intended to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible during the extraction procedure.
- With implant dentures, patients don’t need to worry about their dentures or partials slipping or moving inside their mouths since the appliances are securely attached to dental implants.
What You Should Know about Implant Dentures & Partials
The first step in the process of getting new implant dentures is for dental implants to be placed inside the patient’s mouth – a procedure that is done by a qualified dental surgeon personally chosen by Dr. Kaliher. An implant consists of a titanium rod that is implanted into the patient’s jawbone. Over a period of months, the bone fuses to the implant, after which Dr. Kaliher places an artificial tooth on top of the implanted root. These dental implants are very much like getting new teeth, since they are not removable and function and look just like normal teeth. The next step involves Dr. Kaliher affixing your new set of dentures onto the dental implants.
These amazing dental prosthetics offer the patient many advantages of traditional dentures. Because the implants are permanent, they provide a stable, immovable foundation for the dentures. That means the dentures don’t move or slip inside the patient’s mouth, and there’s no need for the messy adhesive gels that are often needed with traditional dentures.
