When gaps start to show up in your teeth, your first fear is that you may never smile confidently or chew comfortably again. However, if you get denture implants from a denture clinic, you can have a full, functional set of teeth that will help you to chew with comfort and smile with confidence once more. In addition to their obvious aesthetic advantages, denture implants have also been known to be easier to maintain than conventional dentures in the long term. They also typically make it easier for you to resume eating the foods you love, as conventional dentures can sometimes make eating certain foods more difficult.
If you want to restore your smile, visit Burke Mountain Denture Clinic. We can provide you with a few different prosthetic options, and each will help your mouth function like normal again. Denture implants in Port Coquitlam offer more stability than other denture options because they anchor directly into your jaw, which preserves your jaw's bone mass and helps your dentures stay securely in place.

Unlike other prosthetics, denture implants will integrate with your jaw bone to form a solid foundation that functions similar to your natural teeth. This means your dentures won’t slip out while you’re eating or become loose during conversations. Installing your denture implants will involve the following steps:
You will have your jaw examined, by either a dentist or oral surgeon, to ensure it can support implants and to determine if you are a viable candidate for the implant treatment option.
The dentist or oral surgeon will install a titanium implant in your jawbone and let it heal (on average three to six months), at which point the bone should form a solid base around the implant.
Your dentist or oral surgeon will then uncover the implanted screw, upon which another component may be added to attach the denture to the implant at a later stage.
After you heal, you will return to have your denturist who will fabricate a full or partial denture to the implants in the mouth.
Once the implants have healed, they'll look and function like your natural teeth. Denture implants help preserve your facial structure, and they don’t allow as much food to catch under your dentures. You will also have more bite force when chewing your food, because the dentures are securely anchored in your mouth.
