Teeth are vital, not only for chewing and speaking, but also as a part of your appearance. Additionally, tooth loss can result in other serious issues including jawbone deterioration, loss of facial structure and bite imbalances. At Crossroads Dental Care, we are proud to offer denture stabilization implants and fixed dentures for our patients suffering from tooth loss.
Dentures can provide the function and appearance of natural teeth. Once a patient gets used to them, dentures can feel comfortable and natural. At Crossroads Dental Care, we recommend removable dentures with denture stabilization implants or fixed dentures which offer superior strength and stability compared to traditional suction-based dentures.
Denture Stabilization Implants
Removable dentures with stabilization implants will remain securely in place with a permanently implanted metal framework. This structure is secure even when talking or eating. Just one minimally-invasive surgery is necessary to install the framework. These dentures can be easily removed for cleaning.
Using four to six dental implants per arch, fixed dentures are permanently attached in the mouth and cannot be removed except with surgery. Because the implants function much like natural tooth roots, fixed dentures typically feel just like natural teeth. Cared for properly, fixed dentures should last a lifetime.
