Patients with multiple missing teeth can look to our dentist for implant supported dentures in Billings, Montana, as an effective and long-term restoration. Implant-supported dentures provide similar functions as traditional dentures but have greater stability because they are anchored by dental implants.
This means that you will not have to deal with your dentures becoming loose or chafing in your mouth, causing discomfort or making it more difficult to speak or eat. They can feel as sturdy and comfortable as natural teeth.
Once you have had your consultation and determined that implant-supported dentures are the right treatment for you, Dr. Josh Muir will place the implant posts. These posts are made of a biocompatible material and inserted into the jawbone to create secure anchors. The exact number of implant posts that are required will vary depending on your unique needs, but in many cases, we are able to use the All-on-4® implant method, which can support a restoration on only four posts.
Dental implants can last a lifetime when good hygiene is practiced and the proper care is given. This means that they are quite cost effective, particularly when you consider that existing dentures can often be retrofitted to work with the implants.
