Did you know that over twenty-five percent of people over 65 have lost all of their teeth? Whether from disease, malnutrition, genetic disorders, or an accident, sometimes it is necessary for an individual to have some or all of their teeth extracted. Whatever the reason may be, our goal is to replace the lost teeth and restore the function and look you once had.
A denture consists of natural looking artificial teeth set in a supportive base. It may be fabricated to replace either a small group of teeth, an entire upper arch, an entire lower arch, or used to restore both dental arches.
In situations where some sturdy teeth remain, partial dentures can be fabricated. Partial dentures can achieve adequate retention and stability by having clasps on the teeth surrounding the edentulous areas.
In some cases added stability for the dentures can be provided by strategically placed implants. One of the major issues we face once we lose our teeth is bone loss. Without stimulation on the bone it begins to resorb and shrink. Placing implants helps to mitigate the loss of bone, and gives the dentures a secure place to be anchored. An implant retained denture allows you a secure, esthetic, and functional option.
We will work to provide you the best possible solution in allowing you to function normally and have a new smile you will be proud of.
