Restore Aesthetics, Function and Health with Implant Supported Options
<strong>If you have a full arch of missing teeth and are dissatisfied with dentures, you may be a good candidate for a full arch replacement with implant supported dentures or All-on-4® implants.</strong> With both of these techniques, a set of dental implants is used to support a custom-made denture or bridge, which will not slip or click. Using implants to anchor the prosthetic device in place not only provides a more stable bite, but improves the look of the smile and reduces the risk of bone loss. These full arch solutions can restore your smile and build a new level of confidence.
Implant Supported Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures
Unlike traditional dentures, implant supported dentures involve placing a set of dental implants into the jaw to serve as a foundation for your dentures. The dental implants are placed in areas where you have the most bone tissue available and are intended to last a lifetime. The denture then attaches to these implants to provide more stability, a stronger bite and a natural appearance.
