It’s normal to have questions. We’re here to answer them. We want you to feel at ease throughout this entire process.
What are anchored dentures with dental implants?
An anchored denture is a removable full-arch denture that is snapped onto dental implants. The implants help keep the denture in place and provide better function, stability, and comfort. These aspects make Renew’s system more comfortable than conventional dentures. Plus, the roof of the mouth is usually left open, meaning you can chew and taste your food again.
What are the advantages of anchored dentures supported by dental implants?
Dental implants are largely seen as the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. That’s because they replicate natural tooth roots which help preserve the jawbone and gum tissue. Renew’s fixed-removable solution specifically provides a great look and feel. Unlike our system, traditional removable dentures can be challenging to wear, restrict your food choices, and must be replaced more frequently.
How successful are implant-supported dentures?
Dental implants have been helping patients restore the function and appearance of missing teeth for over 40 years. The success rate for dental implants is very high. Dental implant-supported dentures can function properly for the rest of your life when proper oral hygiene is followed, and regular dental check-ups are maintained.
Can anyone get a new smile with anchored dentures?
Renew performs a full-mouth restoration service. At our affordable cost, patients can receive both a top and bottom set of teeth. To do so, your mouth must be examined thoroughly and your medical and dental history reviewed. Every individual situation is different, so it is important to have a consultation with our Dental Team. If you’re healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you’re probably healthy enough to receive a dental implant. Plus, our doctors have successfully treated patients in their upper 90s.
Does insurance cover the cost of anchored dentures or dental implant treatment?
Most dental insurance plans have a maximum annual payout for dental treatments they deem necessary. In addition, your medical insurance may cover implants as a result of work-related injuries or as a medical necessity. We will work with you to complete the necessary claim forms with ADA codes for the treatment received. Any reimbursement for eligible expenses will be sent directly to you from your insurance provider.
What is involved in getting an anchored denture procedure
Having your teeth replaced involves an initial consultation with our experienced doctors and Education Consultant. You will receive a 3-D CAT Scan which allows our doctors to see your mouth in three dimensions. From this advanced technology, we can develop a customized treatment plan for you. During the process, we meet with you to do a precise work-up and discuss your wants, needs, and concerns. Once we determine that you are a candidate for Renew, your single-day surgery is scheduled. On the day of your procedure, dental implants are placed into the bone under IV sedation. This sedation ensures you remain as comfortable as possible. Your customized set of new teeth provide you with a beautiful new smile and a set of new functioning teeth that look and feel natural.
Is there pain involved with the surgical procedure?
Renew is committed to making sure every patient is as comfortable as possible. We use local anesthesia and/or sedation dentistry like any other medical procedure during implant placement. After the procedure, we share pain management options if you feel discomfort. Every patient heals differently, but many report using over-the-counter pain medications, or those prescribed by the doctor, to relieve any post-surgical pain or discomfort.
How do I care for Renew teeth?
Clinical research indicates that implant-supported replacement teeth can last a lifetime. That means, with Renew, you could be one and done. By comparison, typical tooth-supported bridges can last an average of 7 years, and partials and dentures are functional for about five years. Caring for your new smile is similar to caring for natural teeth. You will need to clean your teeth properly and have professional dental cleanings twice a year, just as you would caring for your natural teeth.
How much do Renew teeth cost?
At Renew, we’ve worked hard to develop an affordable system for our patients. Our system is also at a fraction of the cost of other dental implant procedures. Renew starts as low as $18,795. We will work with you to help identify how our treatment can fit your budget. Every case we see has unique circumstances. Given the number of treatment options and variables associated with each unique individual, it is essential to come in and meet with our Dental Team.
