Denture clinic in Midland area offering implant dentures to help you improve your smile. Learn about the types of implant dentures such as bar-retained implant dentures and ball-retained implant dentures. Permanent dentures and false teeth are available.
Dental implants are special types of titanium screws placed under the gums and into the jawbone. Once natural teeth are lost or removed as a result of disease the bone surrounding the roots begins to shrink. Dental implants act as a substitute for teeth.
The process for implant placement varies from patient to patient and is determined by many factors, including age, oral hygiene, medications, and medical conditions. Sometimes pre-operative surgical procedures are required before implant placement.
For most dental implant placement procedures two surgeries are required. The first surgery involves the placement of the implant into the jawbone under the gums. The second surgery includes exposing the implant and adding a dental abutment.

Implant therapy may be a life-changing treatment for denture wearers if they are missing most or all of their natural teeth. One of the biggest complaints about dentures is the feeling of “loose teeth” as a result of perpetual loss of jawbone leading to unstable dentures. Dental implants replace missing tooth roots and provide impressive support for the denture to stay in place. In addition to looking great, implant-supported dentures are designed to last for a very long time, preventing additional bone loss and giving you the confidence to go about your daily activities. While dental implants have been around since the 60s, the developments and successful use of implants has been supported by significant amounts of clinical research and scientific studies. Here are some reasons to consider implant overdentures.
