Affordable dental implants can relieve you of worry and stress about dentures that slip around or fall out. In Baton Rouge, Dr. Steven Brooksher provides affordable dental implants to stabilize your dentures and improve the way they fit and feel.
How Affordable Dental Implants Can Help
Dental implants are surgically implanted in your jawbone and serve as anchors for your dentures. After the implant fixtures and your jawbone fuse together, your dentures will be secured to the implants. Although four to six dental implants provide maximum stability, snap-on dentures are an alternative that will provide some support.
Snap-on dentures are more affordable because only two implants are used. The base of your denture is made, or modified, to snap onto the implants.
If you already have dentures, Dr. Brooksher can examine them and determine if they can be modified for dental implants. If you need new dentures and want the work completed in phases, you can receive dental implants at a later time.
Benefits of Affordable Dental Implants
- Your dentures will rest on the implants, not on your gums. This relieves your gums and jawbone of the pressure that would otherwise accelerate bone shrinkage.
- The implants stimulate jawbone in the surrounding area and help prevent shrinkage and facial collapse.
- Your dentures won’t slip around or fall out.
- It’s easier to eat and speak with snap-on dentures.
Insist on Quality
Affordable dental implants are only beneficial if they are planned for and placed with care. If substandard fixtures are used, or if shortcuts are taken to reduce costs, serious mistakes can occur. Numbness, tingling, infection, and pain can result if you settle for cheap implants. The implants will need to be replaced—costing you more time and money in the long term.
Dr. Brooksher is a fellow of the International College of Oral Implantologists. He upholds the organization’s high standards for quality implant fixtures, planning, and placement. Although snap-on dentures are more affordable than other options for securing your dentures, Dr. Brooksher doesn’t sacrifice quality. He uses 3-D imaging to ensure proper placement of your dental implants. And if you need new dentures, they will be made of high-quality materials that last and look natural.
