Comfortable, Stable Dentures
Over time, many of our patients have lost one or more teeth and come to us looking for solutions. They may think they need dentures, but aren’t really aware of the many options available to give them back the self-confidence they once had when they weren’t worried about their smile.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
While our dentists have advanced training and decades of combined experience in making and fitting dentures to your exact specifications, we recommend using dental implants to stabilize your dentures, making them look, feel and act like your natural teeth.
Dentures anchored with implants are extremely secure and allow you to eat just about anything you desire. The greater the number of implants, the more stable and more natural-looking your dentures appear.
Types of Dentures
Traditional partials are held in place by metal clasps that go around existing teeth to secure them in place.
Your existing dentures are retrofitted with implants to the point where they are secure once again.
Placed immediately after any teeth are extracted so you can leave our office with an aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, temporary denture as your gums heal prior to a permanent denture being made.
Flex No-Metal Partials
With flexible, no-metal partials (some with a cosmetic clasp), no one will notice you’re wearing a partial denture.
Relines and repairs
Your existing dentures are sent to our dedicated local lab for an immediate fix.
Implant-supported dentures are removable, fit securely over a ball and socket, and securely clipped into place. Ask the doctor about mini-implants to support your dentures.
