With this state-of-the-art treatment, you never have to wear dentures again. As we age, tooth loss happens very often. Fortunately, with today’s advances in dentistry, tooth loss doesn’t have to be permanent.
If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or denture can replace all of them. Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the lost roots. Dental implants are the most durable and functional tooth replacement option available today.
Every patient is different and will require a custom treatment plan and a varying number of implants. This will affect healing time and cost. Ask your doctor what options are best for you!

Dental Implants vs. Traditional Dentures?
Dental implants are currently considered the gold standard when replacing missing teeth. They provide several advantages over traditional dentures. They are the only tooth replacement option that replaces some of the roots of your teeth, which helps preserve your bone. With traditional dentures, the bone that was stimulated by your natural tooth’s root will begin to resorb and deteriorate. As the bone melts away underneath the traditional denture, it gets loose and needs to be constantly adjusted. Dental implants integrate directly into your jawbone. The implants help to stimulate the bone and prevent it from resorbing.
Implant-supported overdentures are a full set of dentures that clip into place along your jawline to which have the appearance and function as natural teeth. Like the full-arch fixed bridge denture, the overdenture is supported by dental implants. However, the overdenture can be removed at home for cleaning and maintenance. Your doctor will attach a supporting structure to the implants so that you can snap your overdentures into place for increased stability and comfort while eating, drinking and speaking.
