Where southern charm and warmth meets high tech dentistry.
Anyone with regular dentures knows that eating a steak or biting into an apple is always risky because the dentures in the jaw may slip and slide as they lose their attachment to the gums. The solution to this is getting the denture attached to implants in the jaw. Implant-supported dentures lock the denture in place, providing people peace of mind that their dentures will not slip when eating or speaking in public.
An implant-supported denture is a type of denture that is supported by and attached to implants, whereas a regular denture rests on the gums and tends to fit less firmly in the mouth. The implants are placed into the jaw and bond to the jawbone forming an anchor. When a person has enough bone in the jaw to support implants, an implant-supported denture is ideal. This sort of denture has special attachments that snap onto the implants, allowing the denture to feel stable and secure.
Patients say the implant-supported dentures make their life more pleasurable, allowing them to even eat caramel at a party without having to worry about the dentures sticking together.
To find out more about implant-supported dentures, be sure to talk to a dentist who has advanced training in the placement and restoration of implants.
