Add Support to Your Denture with Dental Implants
Dentures offer a cost-effective, convenient tooth replacement option for many patients. But the temporary nature of dentures does not provide a long-term solution to the effects created by missing teeth. When teeth become lost, their roots are no longer present to stimulate and maintain bone in the jaw. Without this activity, bone breaks down, changing the shape of the jaw and ultimately the fit of a denture. Dentures may become loose, ill-fitting and troublesome to wear. We can reduce this risk and increase stability for your dentures through a process called denture stabilization. To stabilize existing dentures, our team places a series of mini dental implants in your jawbone, to which we retrofit and securely attach your dentures. Denture stabilization expands the life of your dentures while increasing your biting function, comfort and quality of life.
