At Garden City Implant & Dental, we will explain all of your treatment options and what to expect with each. Dentures have provided patients with a reliable way to replace missing teeth for hundreds of years and have gone through dramatic improvements in recent decades. Today's dentures look more natural than ever and provide improved fit and function.
Dental Implant Supported Dentures
Denture fit still poses a challenge for some people because they depend on the bone beneath the gums to secure them. Some patients with reduced bone have difficulty with dentures slipping or moving while eating or speaking, and this can contribute to feelings of self-consciousness. If you would like added reassurance that your dentures will stay in place so you can avoid embarrassing mishaps, Dr Wong can combine the stability of dental implants with the affordability of dentures for a reliable solution.
Placing 4 to 6 dental implants on the upper and lower arch will anchor dentures in place, preventing loose-fitting dentures. Dental implants also have the added benefit of preserving remaining bone.
Dental implants also offer a solution for patients who are interested in replacing several missing teeth with a bridge, making the entire system more stable.
