Looking For Dentures That Won’t Slip? We Can Help!

Removable dentures offer a solution to advanced tooth loss, helping you enjoy a whole smile again. However, they do have a few drawbacks, such as potential slippage during meals or speech. Fortunately, using dental implants we can secure dentures that won’t slip for our Waukee, IA, patients.

The Health Risks of Advanced Tooth Loss

When we lose several, or a majority of our teeth, then our overall health may suffer. Patients may be forced to subsist on mainly soft foods, depriving themselves of essential nutrients. In addition, trouble speaking clearly may develop as well. In order to maintain optimal health, then you should address missing teeth as soon as possible.

Implant-Secured Dentures

We will place between six and eight dental implant posts per arch. Once in place, we will create a custom-made denture, whether full or partial, and attach it to the dental implant posts. The new teeth will be held firmly in place. For some patients, we may need as little as four dental implants per arch to address your missing teeth. We will examine your smile and assess the cause and severity of your tooth loss to decide the best choice to address your missing teeth.

The Benefits of Implant Dentures

First, the dental implants act as new tooth roots, stimulating the growth of jawbone tissue. The growth of tissue helps patients avoid the loss of jawbone density that occurs following tooth loss. The jawbone stimulation helps prevent loss of further teeth and helps preserve the patient’s facial structure. We also design the prosthetic to ensure it matches your smile and looks completely natural. If you have missing teeth and are ready to enjoy a full and functional smile, then contact our team today.
