Implant Dentures in Long Beach - John H. Cho, DDS
If you have missing teeth and are currently utilizing a removable denture to restore some function and improve aesthetics, the only way to get better results is through implant dentistry. With Dr. Cho’s implant denture treatment in Long Beach, patients benefit from the life-changing advantages of stronger, more comfortable dentures.
Going from Full Dentures to Implant Dentures
Many patients who have struggled with the discomfort and distraction of removable dentures for years are curious about whether they can go from their old denture to a more modern and comfortable implant denture combination. Implants are the standard for lasting teeth replacement and can help a variety of patients enjoy a more stable and functional prosthetic. Implant denture options from Dr. Cho include:
Dentures with Locators – Also called an overdenture, this treatment option include the placement of minimal implants for an affordable solution to tooth loss. Typically using only two implant posts, full dentures can be snapped into place though a bar attachment, called a locator. While these dentures can be taken out by the patient, they are a far more secure solution than using denture adhesive on a daily basis.
Fixed Hybrid Dentures – These permanent, screw-retained dentures are a non-removable variety of treatment that looks and feels more like natural teeth. As they are held in place with a greater number of implant posts, these dentures are not intended to be removed by the patient. Your fixed dentures will feel like your real smile, so you can forget about ever having missing teeth.
If you have an existing full denture and are interested in implant stabilization, our Long Beach implant dentist, Dr. Cho, can convert an existing denture to be compatible with implant attachments. However, if you are considering implant dentures as a first treatment option, we can have a new prosthetic fabricated for you out of a variety of materials, which include beautiful and durable zirconia or denture acrylic.
Immediate Implants for Dentures in Long Beach
In some cases, most of your treatment plan can be completed in one day. Through a process called immediate implants, Dr. Cho can extract severely damaged and failing teeth and embed dental implant posts in their place at the same visit. Once implants have been placed, patients are supplied with a realistic looking temporary so they do not have to go without the appearance of teeth while their implants heal.
