If you have lost most or all of your natural teeth due to decay or injury, or are fed up and embarrassed by dentures that rock and slip, Dr. Diehl & Dr. Hemphill at Dupont Family Dentistry has a solid solution for you. Implant supported dentures not only give you a beautiful new smile and sense of confidence; they help preserve your oral and facial health, and allow you to get back to living your life – without worrying about your teeth.
What are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant supported dentures are tooth replacement appliances – can be full if you are missing all your teeth, or partial if you are just missing a few – that are anchored and secured using dental implants. Dental implants are tooth root replacements, that are surgically implanted into the jawbone to prevent dentures from slipping out of place. At Dupont Family Dentistry, we use the All-On-4® system for implant supported dentures. This means we use four dental implants to support a restoration, or dentures.
What are the benefits of Implant Supported Dentures?
The benefits of implanted supported dentures go far beyond cosmetics, and include:
- Help maintain bone structure
- Prevent sunken face and bone atrophy
- Improve speech
- Ability to eat normally
- Provide a beautiful, natural looking smile
Modern dentures are a far cry from the dentures of your grandparents. With extra support from dental implants, dentures are much more secure – no more rocking and slipping, no more messy pastes. And with advances in technology, 3D imaging allows us to craft tooth replacements that perfectly match the color and shape of your natural teeth – no one will know the difference!
