If you wear dentures and are looking for additional stability to ensure that they do not slip or fall out, you may be interested in dental implants. Dental implants are a revolutionary dental treatment that can be used to provide support for crowns, bridges or dentures. The process involves inserting titanium screws into the jawbone and allowing the bone in the jaw to heal. Once the bone has healed and the implants are anchored securely in the jaw, crowns, bridges or dentures can be attached to the implants to take the place of missing teeth.
When first invented, dental implants were used exclusively to provide support for dental crowns. Today, their use has greatly expanded and they are used to support dental bridges and dentures. Dental-implant-supported dentures provide more stability than conventional dentures and are less expensive than a full set of dental-implant-supported crowns. For this reason, they are a good solution for many individuals with missing teeth.
If you are interested in dental implants to provide added stability to your dentures, the first step is to visit a dental implant specialist in your local area. After a thorough evaluation and medical history, your dentist can determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. To be a candidate for dental implants, you must have enough healthy bone and tissue in your jaw to support the implants. In cases where the quantity or quality of bone in the jaw is insufficient to support dental implants, other procedures may be needed to prepare the jawbone for successful placement of implants. This may include any variety of bone grafting procedures.
If you have dentures that slip or fall out or if you are simply looking for a way to add stability to your dentures, talk to your dentist about dental implants today. With dental-implant-supported dentures you can once again chew, smile, laugh and speak with confidence.

These “instant orthodontics” give many of our patients the ‘movie star Hollywood’ smiles that they have always wanted, but never thought possible.
- Six Month Smiles- when most people think of braces, they think of metal brackets, plenty of waiting time, and expensive procedures.
