Quality Dentures on Implants in Sudbury and Sturgeon Falls
Are you tired of struggling with traditional dentures? Thanks to many advances in dental implant technology over the last 40 years, implant-supported dentures have become the preferred alternative to the frustrated denture wearer or those not happy transitioning from natural teeth to dentures.
At Allan Delsaut Denture Clinics, we provide implant-supported dentures for Sudbury residents while ensuring profound patient satisfaction. Our goal is to offer dentures on implants that are comfortable and look like natural teeth. To a denture-wearer, implants provide excellent stability while helping preserve that precious bone under the gums and keeping the natural look of your face and lips. They are as close as we′ll ever get to real teeth in dentistry, and patients often tell us they wish they had received them sooner. So, if you plan to get implants, don’t wait any longer!

Why Implant-Supported Dentures?
A regular denture rests on the gums and is not supported by implants, causing them to move around, lisp, or hurt when biting hard foods. An implant-supported denture is a type of denture that is supported by and attached to implants, which alleviates most of these painful situations because the denture is secure and doesn′t move freely.
An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw but still has enough bone to support implants. Special attachments are adhered to the implant, allowing the denture to be snapped into place.
We also offer various other denture solutions at our clinic with professional services from our team. Visit us to know more!
There are two types of implant-supported dentures available at our clinics in Sudbury: bar-retained and ball-retained. In both cases, we make the dentures with an acrylic base that will look like gums and will have natural-looking acrylic teeth attached to it. Both types of dentures need at least two implants for support, with most patients choosing four or more for superior stability and function.
A thin metal bar that follows the curve of your jaw is attached to two to five implants placed in your jawbone. Clips or other types of attachments are fitted to the bar, the denture or both. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by the attachments.
Each implant in the jawbone holds a metal attachment that fits into another attachment on the denture. In most cases, the attachments on the implants are ball-shaped (male attachments), and they fit into sockets (female attachments) on the denture. In some cases, the denture holds the male attachments and the implants have the female ones.
Before any work is done, you should visit a denturist who has advanced training in the placement and restoration of implant-supported dentures.

How to Take Care of Your Implants after Getting Them?
After getting dentures on implants, taking proper care of them to ensure their longevity and maintain your oral health is vital. Some guidelines you can follow for taking care of your dental implants include:
Follow the denturist's instructions: Your denturist will instruct you regarding the proper oral care steps for your dental implants based on your situation. It's essential to follow their guidance closely.
Maintain good oral hygiene: Ensure brushing your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush at least twice daily. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and brush gently around the implant area. Floss daily, using floss or interdental brushes designed explicitly for implants to remove plaque and debris around the implants efficiently and prevent gum disease.
Use an antibacterial mouthwash: Rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash recommended by your dentist. Doing this will help reduce bacteria and prevent infection around the implant site.
Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption: Alcohol consumption and smoking can increase the probability of implant failure and negatively affect the healing process. It's best to avoid these habits or reduce them significantly.
Be mindful of your diet: Follow a balanced diet consisting of various nutrients to support your oral health and overall well-being. Avoid biting hard foods or using your implants to open packages or bottles, as this can cause damage.
Attend regular dental check-ups: Visit your dentist and your denturist regularly for check-ups and professional cleanings. Your dentist will monitor the state of your implants, assess the health of your gums, and make any necessary adjustments or recommendations.
Protect your implants: If you participate in contact sports or activities that may pose a risk of injury to your mouth, consider using a mouthguard to protect your implants.
Be aware of potential signs of complications: Watch out for any signs of redness, swelling, pain, or discomfort around the implant area. If you experience any issues or concerns, contact your dentist promptly.
Remember, every implant case is unique, so it's crucial to consult your denturist for personalized advice on caring for your specific implants. Our team ensures you stay informed at each stage of getting dentures on implants from Allan Delsaut Denture Clinics.
