A Long-Term Solution to Multiple Missing Teeth
Replacing missing teeth is important not only for your ability to eat and speak comfortably, but also for your general health and well-being. Implant supported dentures offer a long-term, stable solution to replace multiple or a full arch of missing teeth.

Comparing Implant Supported Dentures and Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures may be a viable solution in some cases. However, many patients find greater oral health and lifestyle benefits when choosing implant supported dentures for their tooth replacement.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures rely on the strategic positioning of two or more dental implants placed within the jawbone. Custom made as either full or partial dentures, implant supported dentures securely attach to these implants to create a solid, stable tooth replacement. Implant supported dentures can be fixed or removable.
Traditional dentures rest on top of the gum tissues, and often are held in place by denture paste, adhesive, or metal clasps that hook around adjacent teeth. As the underlying bone shrinks over time, traditional dentures must be relined or replaced to maintain their fit.
