What Are Implant Dentures?
For patients with severe tooth loss, we recommend implant dentures. Four or more implants hold the custom-designed denture in place permanently. Resting firmly against the entire gum line, these dentures provide an unparalleled fit and look. Patients will often experience a boost in confidence after they get their implant dentures, and feel and look young again!
Implant supported dentures are the best choice for replacing a full set of upper or lower teeth.
The dental implants our dentures are attached to are designed to last for a lifetime.
Enjoy food, sports, and laughter like you used to without worrying about your smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
Your teeth affect everything - from your smile and confidence, to your ability to eat, speak and participate in everyday activities. If you need to replace multiple, adjacent teeth there is no better fitting or more stable option than implant-supported dentures.
In many circumstances implant supported dentures aren't necessary, however if you want to enjoy life like you did prior to losing your teeth, our implant-supported dentures are the best choice for replacing a full set of upper or lower teeth. When you visit us for your complimentary consultation we will provide you with an accurate, honest diagnoses.
Nothing lasts forever, but for most patients 45 years or older a dental implant will last for life. The implant itself won't typically need replacement but the denture appliance placed on the implants may need restoration or replacement periodically.
The average dental implant procedure takes between three and six months. Most of this time is spent waiting for the bone graft to properly fuse completely with the implant itself. During the recovery times you will have a temporary crown or bridge and will not be without your teeth.
Of course there are. Palouse View Dental won't lecture or judge you for your dental problems. Every patient is unique, and we understand that sometimes circumstances can lead to dental problems a patient might find embarrassing. Rest assured, our practice is proud of your choice to pursue a healthy smile.
Of course not. The consultation is completely free of charge. We are limited in how many consultations we can schedule during any given period - so make sure to schedule yours as soon as possible. A healthy smile and good oral health isn't something you should procrastinate about.
Your implants and implant-supported denture will cost between $7,900 and $11,900 on average. In order to be more specific we need to determine your specific dental problems and develop an individual treatment plan tailored to your restorative needs.
More than ever before, insurance companies are recognizing the benefits of dental implants over other treatment options and offer some amount of dental implant coverage. If yours does not, you should ask them if they will give you an allowance towards dental implants equal to the cost of a bridge or traditional dentures.
We understand that implant supported dentures are an expensive treatment option. Ask our office about financing options or payment plans. CareCredit® offers reasonable interest rates for patients who need to finance their dental care.
