Restore Your Appearance
In partnership with a local dentist for placement of permanent implants, we can offer dentures over implants. Dentures over implants are the best way to restore the appearance of your natural smile.
Gradual Bone Loss In The Lower Jaw
Due to the absence of dental roots, which normally transmit masticatory force to bone cells, the lower jaw resorbs up to 1mm a year in a continuous and unavoidable way. Below you will find examples of bone loss. Implant must be placed before too much bone loss has occurred.

How Do Dentures Over Implants Work?
Titanium posts are surgically inserted into the jaw bone by a dentist. These titanium posts act like natural roots, giving the dentures a firm grip to the jaw. This stability is especially important when chewing and in the pronunciation of words.
Over the years, some denture wearers experience bone loss on the upper and lower gums. This bone loss affects the fit of the denture and causes difficulty in chewing and ultimately the deterioration of the jaw structure over time. In these cases, dentures over implants can be particularly helpful.
Dentures over implants is the only way that a lower denture can be stabilized in your mouth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the new standard care for tooth replacement. They bond with healthy bone and provide permanent support for dental crowns and dentures. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and can last a lifetime.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and prevent bone loss. Plus, with dental implants, healthy teeth are not compromised. In fact, leading dental organizations recognize dental implants as the standard of care for tooth replacement.
Why Are Dental Implants A Good Choice?
Implant retained dentures are more stable and “real” feeling than most types of dentures. Implants are a proven restoration option with a long, clinical history and an excellent success rate. With full upper cases, the denture palate is no longer required, allowing you taste and feel your food more naturally.
Many patients who have chosen implant-supported dentures report they are happy and comfortable for the first time since the loss of their natural teeth.
Tooth loss causes bone loss. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it shrinks from lack of stimulation. Not only does losing teeth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.
