Never Struggle With Embarrassing Or Uncomfortable Dentures Again

All too often dentists hear the same thing from denture patients that come to their offices unhappy with their traditional denture. “My denture is uncomfortable” or “My denture doesn’t fit right.” In fact, most people in traditional dentures are not happy with something about their denture. Some are embarrassed by their denture or fear it will fall out at an inconvenient time. These fears are legitimate. That’s why dentists are always excited to tell patients about implant retained dentures.

Dentures have come a long way. If you are in a traditional, removeable denture, you’re driving a Pinto. Today’s denture technology is a serious upgrade from what you are used to. Get out of the Pinto and step into a Maserati.

What’s the difference? First, technology now allows us to take a 3D image of your entire jaw. Dentists use this image to ensure that we will develop the best treatment plan to provide you with the most comfortable and secure prosthetic. Next, they use a scanner to take a digital impression of your mouth. This is way more accurate than the old technology of taking an impression with a bunch of goop in your mouth.

After this is complete, dentists work with highly skilled laboratory techs to develop a custom plan that will meet all your needs functionally and aesthetically. Once this plan is done to both the doctor’s and the patient’s satisfaction, implants are placed into the bone. These act as virtually permanent anchors to secure the denture in place.

The result is a denture that looks like real teeth, acts like real teeth, stays in place like real teeth, and provides you with years of comfort, function and security. Your smile is one of the most important things about you. It is the best way to make a first-impression. It drives confidence. But more importantly, it helps you lead and maintain a healthy lifestyle while enjoying the food you love for the rest of your life.

If you are unhappy with your denture, contact a dentist that offers this technology today.
