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. Anchored dentures are more comfortable because the denture stays in place and does not move like conventional dentures. With an anchored denture the roof of the mouth is usually left open. This means you can chew and taste your food again.
Dental implants are largely seen as the gold standard for replacing missing teeth because they replicate natural tooth roots. This helps preserve the jawbone and gum tissue. In addition, Renew Anchored Dentures provide a great look and feel. Anchored dentures don’t compare to traditional removable dentures that can be challenging to wear, restrict your food choices, and need to be replaced more frequently.
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.
Renew Anchored Dentures performs a full-mouth restoration service. At our affordable cost, patients can receive both a top and bottom arch of teeth. Your mouth must be examined thoroughly and your medical and dental history reviewed. Every individual situation is different and that’s why it is so 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. Our doctors have treated patients in their upper 90s.
Most dental insurance plans have a maximum annual payout for dental treatments they deem necessary. In addition, your medical insurance may cover implants as the 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 treatment received. Any reimbursement for eligible expenses will be sent directly to you from your insurance provider.
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 Anchored Dentures, your one-day surgery is scheduled. On the day of your procedure, dental implants are placed into the bone under IV sedation. This ensures you remain as comfortable as possible. Your customized set of new teeth then snap onto the implants and you are able to leave our surgery center on the day of your procedure with a new beautiful smile and a set of new functioning teeth that look and feel natural.
Renew Anchored Dentures is committed to making sure every patient is as comfortable as possible. We discuss pain management options with you and use local anesthesia and/or sedation dentistry during implant placement just like any other medical procedure. 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.
Clinical research indicates that implant-supported replacement teeth can last a lifetime. 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 properly clean your teeth and have yearly checkups.
Every case we see has unique circumstances. Given the number of treatment options and variables associated with each unique individual, it is very important to come in and meet with our Dental Team. Based on your diagnostic imaging and a professional diagnosis from our Doctor, we will be able to determine if you are a candidate and develop a personalized Treatment Plan for you.
At Renew Anchored Dentures, we’ve worked hard to develop a system that is affordable for our patients and be at a fraction of the cost of other dental implant procedures available on the market. Renew Anchored Dentures start as low as $14,795 and we will work with patients to help identify how our treatment can fit their budget.
The best way to get a complete picture of the costs is to make an appointment for a free consultation.
Renew Anchored Dentures performs a full-mouth restoration service at an affordable price. This means we provide both upper and lower arch replacements supported by dental implants. Renew Anchored Dentures does not perform single implants to replace one missing tooth. If you have ill-fitting dentures or missing and failing teeth, all of which can wreak havoc on your health and social life, Renew Anchored Dentures could be right for you. You owe it to yourself to come in for a free / no-charge 3-D CAT Scan and Consultation.
