Dr. Sielicki Discusses Implant-Supported Dentures
How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?
A full denture is a complete arch of prosthetic teeth. Partial dentures and dental bridges, on the other hand, are designed to replace a few teeth in a row or address localized tooth loss. Traditionally, dentures are designed with a plastic base that goes over the gums. Patients rely on a combination of suction and denture adhesives to keep the restoration in place. While modern dentures are more reliable than ever before, they are still prone to slipping out of place when patients bite, chew, or speak.
Fortunately, implant dentistry has completely transformed the way that we restore missing teeth. Dental implants are titanium posts that replace natural tooth roots. Titanium implants fuse directly with the jawbone, so they never slip out of place. Once implants have integrated with the bone, Dr. Sielicki can attach a denture to the implants, ensuring that the denture has all of the functionality of natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Denture FAQ
How many implants will I need?
Depending on a variety of factors, including your budget, the strength of your jawbone, and the type of denture you select, you may require as few as four dental implants or as many as eight dental implants to support your restoration.
Will my denture look natural?
Yes! Dr. Sielicki will design your denture very carefully, making sure that it fits securely over your gums and fills out your lips and cheeks. Also, because your implants will keep your jaw full and strong, you won't suffer from the jawbone recession that can make you look older than you really are.
How long will my denture last?
Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, you can expect your denture to last for at least 10 years. A few factors can influence the longevity of your denture, including whether you grind your teeth and whether your denture is removable or fixed. Your implants, meanwhile, could last for the rest of your life.
