Did you know that there is an alternative missing teeth replacement for dentures? Implant supported dentures are a radical upgrade for patients struggling with dentures. As any dentist, or any denture wearer will explain, dentures are a suitable solution for missing teeth, but they are a poor substitute when compared to actual teeth. The most economical, long-term solution for people struggling with their denture are implant supported dentures. This hybrid of dentures and dental implants provides all the natural aesthetics of modern prosthetics with the stability and health benefits of dental implants. Implant supported dentures improve not only your ability to eat a wider variety of foods, but stabilizes your denture or prosthesis so you no longer need to use pastes and adhesives or worry about your dentures falling out. Over the long-term, implant supported dentures provide the health and function you need to enjoy a confident and healthy life!
If you have missing teeth, but adequate bone in your jaw, we can place two or more dental implants onto which your denture or a new prosthesis is attached. Implant supported dentures can either be fixed in place or removable for cleaning, depending on your needs and preferences, but are always snapped securely to the dental implants when in use. You can expect implant supported dentures to improve your ability to speak clearly, allow you to taste and eat more of the foods you love, and feel more confident smiling and interacting with others.
