Implant-supported dentures from Ray McKinley DDS & Brittany McKinley-Holloway DDS — McKinley General, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in Shelby Township are state-of-the-art in teeth replacement. They are so secure in your mouth that the ability to bite and chew is virtually normal.
Conventional dentures rest on the gums, with nothing to hold them in place. Implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, are attached to posts that are literally fused to your jaw.
The posts in your jaw are the actual implants, and they make all the difference in the world. Implants are typically made of titanium, which has a remarkable ability to fuse with human bone. This discovery, made back in the 1950s, is what makes implants possible.
One of the great things about dental implants is that they prevent or minimize bone recession. A natural tooth and its root stimulates the jaw, keeping it healthy. When they are lost the jaw bone begins to shrink. Along with this bone recession comes a sagging appearance in the face.
Because dental implants are physically attached to you, they act as replacement roots. They support replacement teeth, and promote healthy bone by stimulating it the way a natural root does.
