No More Loose Dentures!
Implant-supported dentures are a great option for people who need a new set of dentures or for people who are not happy with their loose dentures. Implant-supported dentures help keep dentures stable.
What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are dental prosthetics that are attached to dental implants with attachments that snap onto the implants. Traditional dentures just rest on top of your gums, but implanted-supported dentures are secured in your mouth so that you can more easily chew, talk and laugh without your dentures falling out.
You can use implant-supported dentures for your upper jaw, lower jaw or both, and these dentures cover less of your palate than traditional dentures. You can taste food better and enjoy it more.
How Are the Dental Implants Placed?
The dental implants are placed in areas where there is sufficient bone structure. Tooth loss can lead to bone loss in the area. Therefore, if you don’t have enough bone to place the implants, we can generate bone by grafting the area.
Dr. Wayne W. Hsieh is a surgically trained prosthodontist, who received a two-year fellowship in dental implant placement and restoration. During your consultation, Dr. Hsieh will take X-rays and review your medical and dental histories. In some cases, we may take a CT scan of your mouth to view your sinuses and nerves and check your bone density to determine the best locations for the implants.
