What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable appliances that are used to replace missing teeth. If you are missing some or all of your teeth due to decay, periodontal disease, or trauma, and you are feeling embarrassed about your appearance, dentures might be the right option for you. Without having your teeth replaced, it can affect your self confidence and ability to chew and speak properly. With dentures, we can restore your teeth and prevent your facial muscles from sagging, giving you a full smile that looks natural.
Implant-Supported Dentures at Silverlake Dental Group
There are many benefits to implant-supported dentures. With regular dentures, they can come loose and slip when you are trying to chew or speak. However, with implant-supported dentures, they are secured into place, making them more reliable and comfortable. Just like regular dentures and normal teeth, your implant-dentures should be brushed and cleaned regularly.
Who is a Good Candidate for Implant-Supported Dentures?
Before the procedure for implant-supported dentures, we must make sure that you are the right candidate. If you have gum disease, this will need to be treated first. If you have any other condition that will prevent your implant from fusing properly to your jawbone or you low jawbone density, implant-supported dentures may not be the right solution for you. With healthy gums, we can proceed with the procedure.
