You no longer have to deal with having your dentures fall out mid-sentence. At Simpson Dental Associates, we offer implant-supported dentures that will stay securely in your mouth as you chew food, chat with friends, and smile for family photos.
Implant-supported dentures are a great option if you:
- Are missing most of your teeth
- Want to slow the process of jaw bone loss
- Are tired of dealing with the hassle of loose dentures
Though a custom-fitted pair of dentures should fit comfortably and securely in your mouth, you can give it additional stability with implants.
Implant-supported dentures simply combine the concept of dental implants and overdentures. The implant post that is placed in the jaw bone will integrate there, acting like a tooth root while also slowing the process of bone loss. After you jaw has time to heal, the posts will be exposed so the abutment posts can be attached. Your set of overdentures will be designed to snap over the abutment posts, staying firmly in place.
We will only place 2-5 implants to stabilize a full set of dentures. Often these implants are just placed in the lower jaw because dentures tend to be looser there. You can feel confident in the appearance, function, and stability of your dental restorations when you visit our dentist for implant-supported dentures.
