All About Implant Dentures

The Best Solution For Those With Loose or Poor Fitting Dentures

Anyone who wears dentures will tell you there’s nothing more upsetting than a slipping denture and the uncertainty and anxiety it brings. Not only can denture be embarrassing, but an ill-fitting appliance will eventually wear down the bones that support it.

Then it’s more slipping, more often. One solution to this uncomfortable problem is dental implants. You’ve heard of implants that replace a single tooth, or several at either end of a traditional bridge.

The denture wearer can benefit as well. With two to four implants in place—bonded to the bone itself—a denture has something to hang on to. We create an over-denture that fits atop the implants and lends more permanent stability.

 

A Natural Option For Missing Teeth

The stability of implant dentures is as close as you can get to natural teeth, but improved chewing and speaking efficiency aren’t the only benefits. By putting teeth back where they belong, dentures and implants can restore and keep facial muscles from sagging by giving support to your cheek and lips.

And denture wearers may also notice improved nutrition since they can finally enjoy those crunchy fresh fruits and vegetables. It can truly be a life-changing experience, so please contact our office if you think you may be a candidate for implant-retained dentures.
