Thinking About Dentures? These Are Your Options!

Patient Smiling After Implant Supported Denture Procedure

Patient Smiling After Implant Supported Denture Procedure

Experiencing tooth loss can impact your overall self-confidence, daily life activities, and appearance. It can affect the foods you eat, how you speak or when or even if you smile. There are a number of ways in which missing teeth can be fixed, including traditional and innovative ways. While traditional dentures can be a great option for some, they may not always offer the best stability for the denture installation process. This is why many patients opt for implant supported denture procedures offered by dentists in Lafayette, CA because they want more stability with their tooth replacement solution.


What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant supported dentures use tried and true dentures with permanent dental implants to offer a simpler, steady alternative. Unlike standard removable dentures, this alternative depends on 2 or more dental implants as opposed to your gum line, preventing any soreness from contact and provides a more stable prosthesis. Especially for a lower denture, the included stability from dental implants can make it easier to bite and consume foods.

Looking For Something More?

The All-on-4® procedure offers a great solution for missing teeth and includes the attachment of a fixed prosthesis to just four dental implants to rebuild and create a brand-new smile. The All-On-Four dental procedure overcomes the issue by using as little as four dental implants to place a full arch of dental implants on a more efficient and sturdy foundation. Selecting an expert dentist, such as Dr. Andrew Ferrier, in Lafayette, CA can help create a customized treatment plan just for you to reveal a beautiful smile.
