See How Our Dentures Can Improve Your Life
We do different kinds of implants. The most common implants we do is where we’re replacing just one tooth, and that’s the vast majority of implants where we’re replacing a tooth. Another type of implant we do is where a person is missing three teeth in an area or four teeth in an area, and we can do just two implants with a bridge in between the implants to replace three or four teeth in that situation.
And then we have many patients that have dentures that don’t fit well or some patients that are going into dentures, and implants are a wonderful service for helping people’s denture stay in, especially that bottom denture that’s just wiggling around there. In many cases we can put just two implants on the bottom, and then we use a special precision attachment called the locator that we attach the denture to the implant with, and the patient can snap those in and out. And those have been a wonderful service that people have really appreciated.
On the top we have some patients where they are having difficulty keeping their denture in as well, and we can use implants to hold a denture in to make it so a patient isn’t losing their denture in social situations, where they’re eating with some friends and having their denture fall out. It’s so much nicer to have them snapped in. So if you are missing teeth and you’re interested in a denture or a partial or replacing those missing teeth, do give us a call, and we can use implants to help hold your dentures in place and help restore your smile.
