We can help you have partial and full dentures that are permanently and firmly held in place with the surgical placement of dental implants. If you are missing teeth, you do not have to be embarrassed of your smile or change your diet, we can help. Tooth loss is more common than you may think and increasingly, patients are discovering how dental implants has changed the way we look at dentures. Our team at Peninsula Prosthodontics can show you the difference that implant supported dentures can make.

Patients today have more options than ever before when it comes to dentures and restoring missing teeth. At Peninsula Prosthodontics we specialize in tooth restoration and offer a wide variety of full-arch restorations, including:

•  Removable Dentures: Removable dentures are generally snapped into place over dental implants. When placed, they will not rock, shift, or move, but they allow the patient to remove them for cleaning or as needed. This is often an option selected by patients who are more medically delicate.

•  Fixed Bridge: A dental bridge is used to replace some missing teeth, with healthy teeth between. We can place dental implants to serve as posts for a dental bridge and have false teeth between. Being fixed means that it is permanently in place, it is not removable. The device will improve chewing function, provide support to your bone health, and improve your look.

•  Overdenture: An overdenture is a removeable denture designed to fit over an implant supported device. Sometimes referred to as a bar denture. It may snap onto clasps or a bar. This allows the denture to be removeable for cleaning or as needed.

•  Full Implant Supported Denture: A full implant supported denture is a non-removable permanent denture supported with four to six implants on each arch. It will not shift, rock, or move in your mouth. It will feel stable and secure in your mouth. This means considerably more comfort when chewing, security in social situations of not being embarrassed of your dentures, and bone support.

Dental Implants vs Traditional Dentures

Having your dental device retained with dental implants provides some significant benefits over traditional dentures. In the past, dentures were never viewed as necessarily a good thing, they were simply better than missing teeth. They provided limited support for chewing and limited improvement to your smile along with a constant fear of them slipping out. The use of implants stabilizes the appliance, dramatically improving the effectiveness and durability of your device.

Traditional dentures had very little to rely on for support. They are held in place with suction and sticky adhesives. This poor retention often meant that patients suffered from irritation issues, embarrassing slips, and speech problems. Dental implants provide a firm foundation to retain your dental appliance, they will feel much more like your own natural teeth.

How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants are different from denture adhesives, they are a direct connection to your bone. A dental implant is a medical device that resembles a screw in both size and shape, and much like a screw, they come in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit the specific treatment you are having done. We surgically insert the threaded end into your bone. As the bone heals, it grows around the threaded device bonding the two as one. With proper healing, the device will not come loose. This healing process is known as osseointegration, meaning the bone has fused with the device.

Once the implant is secure, we now have a direct and firm post implanted into your jawbone. The number of posts needed will depend on each patient and what they are having restored. We can use this post to attach a number of dental prosthetics to depending on your needs.

Dental implants have an extremely high rate of success with decades of research to back them up. As more and more variations of dental implants are discovered, patients are finding implants to be the best option in tooth restoration. Ask us today what implant may be right for you.
