Everyone wants to enjoy optimal health and confidence. Patients who are missing teeth need a comfortable and natural-looking new smile. At Keating Family Dental, we primarily use implant supported dentures to restore smiles that are functional, beautiful, and healthy for our patients who are missing teeth.
What are Permanent Dentures?
Permanent dentures, or dental implant dentures, are dentures held in place by dental implants. They provide more security and stability than traditional dentures and added health benefits. The dental implants fill the role of natural tooth roots and provide jaw support and anchors for the dentures.
Full Dentures versus Partial Dentures
Full dentures are best for patients who have lost all of their strong natural teeth. Decay, disease, or physical trauma can weaken or break an entire smile. If you are missing most or all of your teeth, full dentures can build your smile from the ground up.
Partial dentures are connected to a metal frame and are attached to the natural teeth. They fill in areas where some teeth have been lost or extracted. Partial dentures are best for patients who are missing several, but not all, of their teeth.
Benefits of Dentures
Our denture patients love the perks of restoring their teeth with our comfortable custom implant dentures, including:
- A more beautiful smile and youthful facial structure
- Decreased pressure on remaining teeth or dental work
- Lowered risk for TMJ or further tooth loss
- Less dental decay and gum disease
- Easier chewing and speaking
