Dental implant-supported dentures are becoming the “go-to” solution for many people because of their effectiveness, ease of placement and affordability.

Implant dentistry, in general, is a massively expanding industry.

In fact, over 3 million people have implants and that number is growing by more than 500,000 a year with a success rate of over 90 percent after five years, according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

Implant-anchored dentures normally require four implants per arch (upper and lower jaws) to secure a bridge of new teeth. In some cases, the dentures are removable while in other cases — like the breakthrough procedure engineered by Renew — the dentures snap into place.

Dental implants act just like real teeth

Dental implants are literally plugs which are inserted into the jaw and act just like a real tooth root when they integrate with the body. They can immediately replace a tooth or be located where there is currently no tooth. The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia.

Once placed, implants need to sit quietly to integrate with the body. This integration time varies, but most are strong enough to support a crown within 3 to 4 months. Some people are even able to have function on the implant the day of placement based on guidelines your doctor can discuss with you. In the case of Renew 1-day dentures, patients walk out of the office on the day of their implant surgery with a full arch of temporary new teeth.

The (benefits of implant-supported dentures is that they can’t come loose while eating, speaking or laughing like traditional dentures are prone to do. Plus, they are also removable for cleaning or sleeping purposes.

Although most people can have implants placed, there are some contraindications to them which your doctor can review with you. Call Renew to schedule your consultation...it's your turn to smile!
