Dentures & Implant-Supported Dentures
Dentures are an affordable and esthetic, removable solution for replacing all of the teeth. Dentures are artificial teeth with an acrylic base that fit directly on the gums. Complete dentures are primarily held in place by suction. They must be removed for cleaning and should not be worn at night.
During healing, the bone and gums change shape and the denture may need to be realigned one or more times to ensure proper fit with good suction.
Implant-supported dentures provide increased comfort and stability and decreased bone loss. By surgically placing the implant into the jawbone with a ball-and-socket connector, the denture can be securely attached.
