Springfield, MO (PRWEB) August 01, 2014
Dr. Robert Reynolds is the dentist in Springfield, MO with the advanced training and skills to provide implant supported dentures for his patients with missing teeth. Supported by titanium posts that Dr. Reynolds implants in the jawbone, the implant supported dentures are a permanent and effective alternative to temporary dentures and bridges to replace missing teeth.
The implant supported dentures used by Dr. Reynolds have two options available in style to suit each patient's unique needs: a ball mounted or a bar mounted type of denture. Both types are held firmly in place by the posts of the dental implants, but the bar mounted variety can be clipped in or out by the patient more simply than with the ball mount style. At the initial consultation Dr. Reynolds meets with each patient, discusses the options that are available and goes over all the details of the procedure.
With the patient anesthetized, Dr. Reynolds installs the four titanium posts in areas of the jaw with maximum bone density. With the posts in place, the doctor fashions temporary teeth for the patient to use while the dental implants bond with the jawbone. In a few months when the osseointegration is complete and the posts are part of the jaw, they are ready to accept the set of permanent replacement teeth.
The benefits of implant supported dentures include:
Dental implants support permanent dentures that look and feel much like natural teeth. With simple oral hygiene and regular dental care, the new replacement teeth can last a lifetime.
