What are implant dentures?

implant dentures in Albuquerque, NM | Essenmacher Family DentalYou might have heard terms like implant-retained dentures or implant-supported dentures. We offer implant dentures in our Albuquerque dental office to improve the fit and function of dentures for our patients. Having dentures that fit well and feel comfortable can improve patients’ nutritional choices and self-esteem, opening the door to having a happy social life without worry of embarrassing denture mishaps like falling or shifting.

At Essenmacher Family Dental, we offer All-on-4 dentures for our Albuquerque dental patients. All-on-4 requires only four dental implants to secure an entire arch of denture teeth. All-on-4 has a number of advantages over traditional dentures retained by dental implants.

A Smaller Profile

Rather than covering the entire palate, All-on-4 allows us to provide stability through anchor implants, reducing the size and shape of the denture. Patients can taste their food better and find them easier to get used to.

Fewer Procedures 

Your dentist will choose the ideal location for the dental implants, often being able to avoid additional bone grafting procedures.

 

A Permanent Solution

Your new All-on-4 dentures are a long-term solution to missing teeth. Because they are not as affected by changes in bone structure, you can enjoy more extended results than the traditional five to seven years of complete dentures.

Dear valued patients,

As many of you know, in response to the recommendations from the American Dental Association and public health orders in place in New Mexico, we have been seeing patients on an urgent/emergency basis only since March 17. As a practice, our first priority is to put the health and safety of our team and community first.  

Because the exact trajectory of this pandemic cannot be anticipated, we are unable to accurately predict when we’ll be able to resume seeing patients for regular dental care.  At this time, public health orders prohibiting elective dental care extend until May 15.  However, we will definitely make an announcement on our website and Facebook when normal hours are resumed. We will also be contacting patients whose appointments were canceled so that we can reschedule.  

In the meantime, if you have any questions about an upcoming appointment, or have a concern about your teeth that you’d like to discuss, please do not hesitate to call our office.  We are happy to assist you in any way we can.  

While we all watch and wait to see what the coming weeks hold for our nation, I pray for health and peace for all of you and those you love.  I know that together, we will get through this. Take care and God bless. Visit our Facebook page for a message from Dr. Essenmacher. 

Best Regards,

Dr. Essenmacher
