Do you currently wear dentures and long for the days when you could smile, speak, and eat with confidence? Even the most carefully crafted removable dentures don’t have the stability and durability of natural teeth. However, you don’t have to live with loose and unpredictable dentures forever. Now we can pair dentures with stable dental implants for a truly secure fit.
Dr. Jennifer Finney has extensive experience in the placement of dental implants and has been able to help many patients with loose fitting dentures. Dr. Finney’s goal is to provide you with the highest standard of implant dentistry available.
Implant-supported dentures offer the best of both worlds. Dental implants are the preferred tooth replacement choice because they’re the most permanent solution for missing teeth. Dentures restore function and improve your appearance. Using both together, we can create a customized solution with important health, cosmetic, and functional benefits.
At Springbrook Family Dentistry we will evaluate your situation and, depending on your needs, place two or more implants in your bone. Over time, the bone and implant integrate and become permanently rooted in your mouth. Your customized denture will be designed with corresponding attachments that connect securely to the implants in your jaw.
What Implant-Supported Dentures Can Do for You
- Since implant-supported dentures are anchored in your mouth, you will find it easier to speak, smile, and eat without fear of slipping dentures. Because implants greatly increase the stability of your denture you may find you can eat foods you were unable to chew with standard dentures.
- Implants prevent bone recession in your jaw by stimulating growth of surrounding tissues. In this way, the denture will help maintain the natural facial structure contours of your jaw.
- Implants may allow us to make your denture much less bulky. Traditional dentures consist of a plate that covers your entire palate, but an implant-supported denture often does not need the plate to hold it firmly in place.
- Just like any removable denture created at Springbrook Family Dentistry, your implant-supported denture will be carefully crafted to complement your overall appearance. However, these dentures will look even more natural, since you won’t have any metal clips, plastic bases, or denture adhesive.
