Traditionally, several missing teeth would have been replaced with a removable partial or full denture.
Dentures have to be taken out and soaked at night. During the day, they can also look unnatural and rub painfully. Dentures and partials make it difficult or impossible to eat certain foods.
Without the proper fit, dentures can also be uncomfortable and come loose during speaking or eating. If you currently have dentures or are considering them, dental implants can provide a more comfortable and healthy alternative.
Dental implants can now be used to anchor partial and full dentures. This prevents the slipping, irritation, and pain associated with "floating" partials and dentures. It also prevents the tedious removal of dentures for overnight soaking and cleaning.
Dental implants also eliminate the need for denture adhesives. This allows you to enjoy eating the foods you previously avoided. With dental implant support, your dentures can be removable for ease of cleaning or can be attached to the implants permanently and not removable.
