Dentures come with huge benefits for patients and can greatly improve your quality of life. With today's technology, dentures are created to look natural in appearance and give the impression of a beautiful smile. Additionally, dentures provide support for your facial muscles as well as assist with your ability to chew and eat food, and they also assist with your ability to speak clearly.
If your teeth have reached the point where you are considering dentures, we invite you to come in for a complimentary consultation. We will do an assessment of your condition and provide you with a list of options tailored to your individual needs. With the advances in dental implants and other techniques in the last twenty years, dentures can often be used in conjunction with implants for enhanced function and comfort.
Implant supported dentures
If most or all of the teeth are missing then implant supported dentures may be an option. For full denture wearers, retention is often a big problem as bone support recedes. Even the best fitting dentures can feel loose. A full upper denture also requires a large area over the palate to obtain suction which can interfere with taste and the enjoyment of food. Implant supported dentures on the other hand are firmly clipped in and do not require the palate to be covered for suction.
Many clients with no remaining teeth or teeth that need removal do not want to wear a removable denture. Implants are a totally secure, very long-lasting option. The titanium implant is placed in the jawbone by a minor surgical procedure and actually becomes part of your natural bone. Dentures secured via implants are the ultimate solution, giving you the confidence to eat, smile and laugh.
New techniques mean that, in many cases, we can place the implants and secure the denture on the same day - "teeth-in-a-day."
