Implant Technology and Denture Solutions
We love doing dentures. This is the most dramatic way to give someone an amazing smile. Although we make quality traditional dentures for people, traditional dentures have their limitations. Specifically, without teeth or implants, bone structure dissolves away over time, leaving nothing for dentures to adhere to. If you are interested in traditional dentures, we will provide you with the best possible dentures. However, it is important to educate patients about the increased quality of life that adding implants to the base of a regular denture can provide.
Implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or an entire arch of teeth. Even two implants can dramatically increase your quality of life when we can anchor a lower denture to them. If we anchor an upper denture to four to six implants, we can retain the denture without the prosthetic covering the roof of your mouth. The difference for these patients is dramatic. Our office uses the latest technology to plan every procedure and determine on the spot if the patient is a good candidate for this treatment.
What to Expect with Denture Solutions
With denture solutions, it is usually very important to install a solid base to which dentures can be anchored. This typically involves dental implant technology. Be sure to visit the dental implants page and read about the procedures. In addition, you can read about our state-of-the-art dental imaging that helps ensure the most precise surgery possible.
