WHAT ARE DENTURES?
Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial.
Full dentures are given to patients when all the natural teeth have been removed. Conventional full dentures are placed after the gum tissue has healed, which can take several months. Immediate full dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been removed and may require frequent adjustments during the first couple of months of use.
Partial dentures are attached to a metal frame that’s connected to your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are regarded as a removable alternative to bridges.

How Do Implant Supported Dentures Work?
Dentistry is all about smiles, and having a confident, healthy, beautiful smile is important even for patients who wear dentures. Our practice provides personalized denture services that meet the needs and comfort levels of our patients. Everyone is unique, so we create one-of-a-kind dentures that feel good and look natural.
The road to a better life with implant supported dentures begins when dental implants are anchored into your jaw bone. By acting like tooth roots, dental implants provide a secure and strong base for the visible restoration, such as a dental crown, bridge, or a prosthesis, and provide the needed stimulation to the jaw bone to keep it from resorbing and shrinking. Just like natural teeth, with proper care they will not loosen or fall out. You may discover dental implants are the life-changing solution that enables you to regain a fully functional and healthy smile with implant supported dentures.
Personalized Care from an Implant Dentist
Completing all your implant care in-house, we offer our patients a personalized experience and a faster, more comfortable return to optimal oral health and function. Using digital diagnostics and software, we virtually plan your treatment to ensure the greatest success of your surgery. If you have been in dentures for many years, your jaw may need to be restored through bone grafting before we can place implants. Once your mouth is prepared for implants, we surgically place them in your jaw. Depending on your case, your denture may be ready for attachment the day of surgery, or a little while later. Soon, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of strong, stable teeth that will let you eat more of the foods you love and talk, laugh, and smile with confidence!
