Restore Your Youthful Smile
Missing teeth are a problem that many patients will have to deal with at some point in their lives, and for some, the problem can be extensive. Modern dentures can do wonders for rebuilding your smile and returning its youthful appearance. We utilize advanced technology and lifelike materials (such as porcelain) to ensure optimal results when designing and crafting your new smile. If you choose to support your denture on dental implants, you can not only restore your smile, but also help prevent the sunken-in facial appearance that often follows the loss of your teeth roots.
What Makes Implant Dentures Different?
When preparing your smile for dentures, your dentist will take a highly precise mold of your teeth, gums, dental ridges, and jawbone. This mold will serve as the basis for the design of your new dentures, allowing the technician to handcraft a comfortable, customized appliance just for you. Implant-supported dentures are created with just as much care and precision, but are designed to sit atop an appropriate number of dental implants rather than being secure with adhesive and/or the contour of your dental ridge.
Dentures and Facial Collapse
The unique approach to tooth replacement offered by implant-supported dentures helps you regain the full appearance of your smile after suffering tooth loss. It also helps prevent the diminishing effect of tooth loss on your jawbone and surrounding facial structures – a condition known as facial collapse. This occurs because your jawbone loses mass and density after it loses one or more teeth roots. By replacing the roots and the stimulation they provided, dental implants help stem jawbone degradation and resulting facial collapse.
Keep Your Youthful Smile and Facial Appearance
You can replace your lost teeth and stop facial collapse with a custom-made, implant-supported denture.
