Denver Dental Implant Dentures
A bright, healthy smile can make a world of difference to a person's appearance, confidence, and health, but unfortunately, not everyone was blessed with perfect teeth. If you want a new smile, the doctors at Rocky Mountain Dental Partners (RMDP) have the skills to make your smile shine. They can provide anything from simple cosmetic bonding to a brand new smile using dental implants and attaching dentures to the implants.
Sometimes we need dentures to replace our smile. Unfortunately, traditional dentures can be ill fitting, cause sore spots, and may not allow for proper function and chewing. When this occurs, dental implants can be used to hold the dentures in place and prevent these problems from happening.
Advantages of Implant-supported dentures:
Dental implants are the most predictable, long-term solution for the replacement of missing teeth. They have been used for over 30 years and can provide patients with a lifetime of function that mimics closely our natural teeth. Most of the time apples can even be eaten with implant-supported dentures.
Dental implants attach to the dentures and dramatically improve chewing ability and prevent the dentures from falling out. Denture wearers know that loose-fitting dentures present great frustrations when they attempt to eat certain foods or even to speak with confidence without fear that their dentures will begin to float in their mouths.
Dentures can be attached to to dental implants and only the dentist can take them out - ensuring they won't fall out at an inappropriate time. Or dentures can be attached in a way that allows the dentures to be removed at home when needed.
By choosing dental implants in the beginning, a patient is decreasing the chances of having problems with his or her dentures in the future.
Many times implant-supported dentures are more cosmetic than trying to restore natural teeth and can be the perfect solution for some people.
Some people think that dental implants are out of their price range, but affordable dental implants are possible. Ask us about our Dental Plan options.
