Dentures are dental prosthetics that replace missing teeth—either just a few teeth (partial dentures) or complete sets of teeth—when other options are not possible. Dentures restore a patient's smile, give support to the face and mouth, and allow their wearers to regain chewing function—all of which can dramatically improve appearance, nutrition, speech fidelity, and quality of life.
Now, advances in Implant Dentistry are revolutionizing the denture experience. Dental implants are titanium anchors in the bone that help snap or lock dentures (or other prosthetics) into place. This vastly increases denture security and bite strength. Dental implants also significantly reduce bone atrophy that occurs after teeth are lost and helps to maintain the critical support for dentures. Because of these important advantages, when possible, dental implants are the Standard of Care for denture patients.
