Dr. Leo Aghajanian and the team at Precision Dental Implant, Cosmetic and General Dentistry provide patients in the Glendale area with solutions for their smile. If patients are having a dental evaluation with our dental staff and are interested in learning about replacing their dental implants for implant-supported dentures, our team can guide them through the process. Many patients ask their Glendale dentist, can I have new dentures placed over my old dental implants?
The short answer to this is “yes!”. Dental implants are known for lasting a lifetime and can be used for patients who have considered implant-supported dentures. However, it is best for patients to have a full evaluation completed by their dentist. This is done to ensure the dental implants are still firmly in place and are appropriate for denture retention. If for some reason our team has determined a problem with the current implants, we may suggest dental implants replacement before creating professional dentures to be used.
Denture implant replacement
In the rare situation where dental implants in Glendale need to be replaced, our team of dental professionals will start with an examination. This includes x-rays to check the health of the bone and the current placement of the implants. If any problems exist, patients may be required to move forward with removal and replacement. However, many patients are able to utilize their existing dental implants to create dentures to fit over the top.
Why implant-supported dentures?
Patients with full dentures alone have to depend on natural suction or dental adhesives to keep them in place. With dental implants located along the dental arch, patients can have their dentures snap into these restorations to provide optimum strength and stability.
