Implants for Supporting Dentures

Traditionally, dental implants have been seen as an alternative to dentures. However, when you are missing several teeth in a row, dental implants alone may not be the best solution for your smile. For the replacement of multiple teeth, dentures and partials may be a better choice.

In the past, dentures and partials have been secured by adhesives or dental bridges. These methods restore much of the functionality of your teeth, but are far from perfect. One of the largest concerns with topically securing your dentures is jaw shrinkage. Only dental implants can prevent shrinkage and help preserve the natural structure of your face.

Supporting Dentures with Implants
The Pittsburgh dentists at Dentonics are pleased to offer implant supported dentures. With this option, dental implants to which dentures and partials can be secured are placed at intervals throughout your mouth. This serves the dual purpose of strengthening your jaw and providing the most reliable hold for your dental restorations.

Benefits of implant supported dentures include:
• Improved comfort
• Full restoration of chewing abilities
• No risk of slippage or floating
• No damage to adjacent teeth
• Greater ease of cleaning

During your initial consultation it can be determined if dental implants are the right solution for your smile.

If you live in Pittsburgh, Allison Park, Oakland, or surrounding areas of Pennsylvania and are interested in learning more about implant supported dentures, please contact Dentonics to schedule an initial consultation today.
