Dentures & Partials An Overview
Are you missing a full arch or all of your teeth?
Edentulous patients can restore the appearance and function of their smile with a cosmetic denture or partial denture. Today’s patients enjoy tooth replacement options that are more comfortable, stable and natural looking. Dental implants can be used to secure your new denture for a permanent smile restoration that will also provide key benefits for overall dental health.

Why Choose Implant Dentures?
The loss of a full arch or full mouth of teeth has many effects on both oral and overall health and well-being. From a loss of confidence in your appearance to the changes that can occur in the shape of the lower face and your ability to eat a range of foods, tooth loss can detrimentally impact your quality of life.
An implant secured denture will give you back a smile that is permanent, stable, comfortable and allows for normal eating and speaking. Replacing a poorly fitted denture with an implant denture can also be life-changing, giving back the ability and confidence to enjoy your favorite foods and interact with others. Dental implants will stabilize bone tissue in the jaw and minimize shrinkage of the lower face due that can occur when teeth are lost. They also reduce irritation of the gums and increased risk for decay and gum disease.
