Modern dental techniques and technologies have changed the way we look at dentures. These are no longer those loose-fitting appliances that resulted in slurred speech and ruined your ability to enjoy your favorite foods. These are secured, natural-looking, custom dentures that will give you a reason to smile again.
Dentures are a good option for patients who have lost several teeth to decay, trauma, age or accident. We may also recommend them in cases where an implant is not an effective option.
Modern Denture Technology
These modern dentures are far more comfortable and functional that their old predecessors, especially when they’re fitted over endodontically treated teeth or secured with titanium implants.
Implant-secured dentures are becoming a very popular option. We can use a fixed, full-arch prosthesis to replace your missing teeth and restore the functionality and appearance or your mouth.
This procedure is extremely effective because it only requires four implants to secure the dentures in place. These implants can also be placed at an angle in the anterior maxilla – the part of the jaw where the bone density is higher – so that the dentures are secured even tighter.
Replacing Your Teeth
Missing teeth can lead to problems beyond just your appearance. Bone deterioration, infections, and shifting teeth are all possible.
At Morgan Family Dental, we’ll consult with you to determine the best solution for replacing your missing teeth and preserving your oral health.
Implant-secured dentures look and feel natural, and they can be cleaned and maintained just like your other teeth. They may be exactly what you need to restore your ability to eat and speak as you previously did.
