Missing teeth can take a serious toll on your quality of life. Chewing, smiling, and speaking can become difficult and embarrassing without a full set of teeth. Fortunately, dentures can offer a way to replace several missing teeth or an entire row of teeth.
Dentures use a high tech plastic base to replicate gum tissue and support a full set of durable, natural-looking teeth. Dentures stay in place by forming a seal with the existing natural gums.
You can choose partial, full, or implant-supported dentures to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile.
- Enhance your quality of life with the ability to eat comfortably, speak clearly, and smile with confidence.
- Prevent jawbone recession with implant-supported dentures
- Improve the appearance of puckered lips and sunken cheeks with the support of dentures
- Address tooth loss in general, whether localized areas or a complete arch
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures fit differently than traditional dentures. Instead of forming a seal with your gum tissue to stay in place, implant-supported dentures attached to implants that are strategically positioned in the jawbone.
Each implant consists of a titanium “screw” that is surgically placed into the jaw. It fuses with the bone and act as your tooth’s “roots.” Your dentures are then connected to the implants for security, comfort, and durability.
Implant-supported dentures offer several unique benefits for people recovering from tooth loss:
- Strengthen the jawbone by stimulating bone growth and preventing degradation
- Total comfort and confidence; no shifting or falling out
- Natural appearance
Your Harmony Dental Group dentist will evaluate the condition and health of your mouth to determine if you’re a good candidate for implant-supported dentures.
While complete dentures help patients who need all of their teeth replaced, partial dentures are designed to replace a smaller number of teeth using the same type of device.
The smaller base of a partial denture matches the gums’ color, and the teeth are created to resemble existing teeth in the mouth closely. A few different techniques are used to create partial dentures, which can be permanent or removable based on your needs.
