Get a dental implant in Saskatoon
When it comes to dental tooth replacement services, no method is as thorough as dental implants. All dentures replace the top of the tooth, but only implant dentures replace the root. The tooth root system plays an important role in one’s facial structure. Teeth implants go into the jaw bone, reinforcing and stimulating it. In doing so, they form a stable foundation for full or partial dentures.
An Illustrated Guide To Denture Implants
Dentures implants can replace the roots of a single tooth or of many missing teeth. This first image shows how a single tooth implant works. The implant goes into the cavity left by the missing tooth in either upper or lower jaw, beneath the gums. A prosthetic crown (false tooth) is then joined to it.
We do not need to put in an implant for each missing tooth if more than one need to be replaced. The image below shows three types of implant-supported dentures. In each case, we add just enough to provide a firm foundation and a healthy jaw. Fixed bridge dentures (partial denture implants) can only be removed by dental implant clinics. An overdenture is a removable implant denture and can be take out and cleaned at home. It snaps on and off the implants with ease.
How To Get Implant Dentures
Implant dentures is one of the Saskatoon Denture Clinic’s teeth replacement services. We design and fit our patients’ mouths with customized dentures implants. Not every person is a candidate for dental implants. We can look at your jaw strength and dental/medical history and be able to tell you if it is a good fit for you. If it is a go, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan. A dental surgeon will install the implants and the rest happens at our dental implant clinic.

The true cost of dental implants
Implants cost little when compared to the ongoing dental costs they prevent. People who have lost teeth can expect their jaw to shrink. This is the experience of many denture wearers. Not only does it effect a person’s appearance, it can cause pain and make it difficult to speak and eat. Dental patients with these symptoms often need new dentures. Implant-supported dentures is an affordable solution to these issues.
