Dentures are a great way for patients to regain smiles that they love. If you are missing tooth due to decay, trauma, or disease, ask Dr. Szierer about your options for custom dentures.
Partial dentures are generally connected to a pink, skin-colored frame. They contain just a few teeth to fill in the gaps in your smile.
Full dentures are also available to our patients who need to replace a full row of teeth. These dentures rest on the gums and contain a full set of beautiful upper or lower teeth.
Patients may also be interested in stabilizing their dentures with dental implants. Instead of resting on the gums or attaching to the surrounding teeth, implant retained dentures include a more secure foundation.
Greater confidence with implant retained dentures
Implant supported dentures rely on a series of strategically placed titanium posts to stay in place. These strong posts, called dental implants, are inserted into the jawbone surgically. They bond with the jawbone, like true tooth roots, to hold your new dentures in place.
Benefits of implant retained dentures include:
- Implant retained dentures stimulate the jaw, thus preventing bone atrophy, a common side effect of tooth loss.
- Peace of mind knowing that your dentures will not slip or fall out of place while you chew, speak, or eat.
- Implant retained dentures do not cover the palate, allowing wearers to taste food naturally.
- Irritation caused by the instability of traditional dentures is eliminated.
