Securing Your Dentures with Modern Dental Implants

We understand that for some people, full mouth dental implants are a big commitment and they might not be ready for this solution yet. And while dentures are a common solution for full mouth tooth loss, they often present many complications like looseness in the mouth, a weak bite and even discomfort and oral sores. Some of our patients have even mentioned their dentures have fallen out of their mouth while talking and, worse still, they have actually sneezed them out of their mouth entirely!
If you want to avoid this happening to you, we suggest an in-between for dentures and full mouth dental implants—implant supported dentures! With implant supported dentures, we can secure your denture to your jaw comfortably with as few as two dental implants!

Comparing Your Tooth Replacement Options

If you’re unsure if you want to commit to full mouth dental implants, especially if you have lived with dentures for some time, implant supported dentures are a great alternative. We will strategically place as few as two dental implants into areas of your mouth with the most bone and then retrofit your denture appliance to attach to these implants via ball and socket or bar attachment. Depending on your needs, these can be removable or permanently attached and only removed by your dentist. For many people, implant supported dentures is all they need to restore their smile, but many of our patients find they want to “upgrade” to a solution that looks and functions just like natural teeth – full mouth dental implants. The transition can be simple and often just involves placing a few more implants and replacing the denture with a more sleek, natural and comfortable bridge prosthesis!
