Today, artificial teeth are very important. Dentures are a prosthetic device that not only allows you to eat, speak, and smile confidently but is also comfortable and designed for long term wear.
Dentures have greatly improved over the years. In the past, a custom mold would be created to fit your mouth but structural support was always an issue.
Loose or ill-fitting dentures can affect speech, self-confidence and even your diet. Having a good set of healthy teeth allows you to chew healthy foods like raw veggies so you can get the nutrients necessary for your body to thrive. If placed incorrectly eating can be very difficult and the dentures can cause pain or slurred speech.
For those who have lost most or all of their teeth due to injury, tooth decay, or age, immediate implant supported dentures, or All on 4s as they are commonly called, are a great way to recreate a great functional smile quickly.
Eliminate denture problems with implant retained dentures!
For years denture wearers have had to put up with dentures that don’t stay in place. With implant retained dentures this problem can be a thing of the past.
This method of securing your dentures uses the same type of implant that is used to replace individual teeth. You may need as few as 2 full implants to give you dentures that will transform the way you are able to eat and smile.
Once placed a small receptacle is inset into your denture that “snaps” onto the implant holding your dentures in place without sliping. No more messy pastes!
Your dentist will determine if you are a candidate for conventional implants depending upon the structure of the bone in your jaw and other factors.
