Implant-secured Dentures for a Secure Smile
For patients who have lost all of their upper or lower teeth, daily life can be a bit more challenging. Even if they have dentures to replace them.
Traditional dentures can replace the appearance of your natural teeth, but they can often come up short when it comes to replacing natural function. Dentures require daily maintenance and periodic adjusting to keep them in good working order. Even with diligent upkeep, many patients suffer with slipping dentures that can make eating and speaking a chore at times. This can have an affect on your daily life, leading to avoiding social situations, changes in diet, and more.
Over time, most patients will also experience bone loss in the jaw after losing their teeth. Jawbone loss can lead to changes in the fit of traditional dentures, and facial appearance. For those who have lost teeth at an early age, this type of bone loss can make you appear older than you are, as the jaw shrinks inward over time.
Dr. Alexander offers implant-secured dentures to patients who are good candidates for dental implants and need to replace all of their top or bottom teeth.
Benefits of Implant-secured Dentures
- Secure, custom fit tooth replacement using four or more dental implants.
- Helps to reduce bone loss- the implanted posts act like tooth roots and helps maintain bone tissue
- Natural looking, custom made dentures will not slip or require daily maintenance
- Patients can eat and speak normally.
Dr. Alexander offers a free consultation for patients considering dental implants. He will evaluate your dental health and discuss your concerns and goals before making recommendations for tooth replacement, or any restorative dentistry. Give us a call at 904.372.8157 today.
