Replace Your Missing Teeth with Implant-supported Dentures
Are you struggling with dentures that threaten to pop out loose when smiling or eating? Do your dentures feel unnatural, damaging your self-confidence? If you can relate to either question, it’s time to make a switch. Implant-supported dentures from Neal Edwards DDS in Riverside, California, provide a more stable option than traditional dentures.
What to expect during implant-supported dentures
Dentures work if you are missing all or most of your teeth, but they tend to slip or slide when eating or talking. Besides, conventional dentures may irritate your gums as they adapt to bone loss. Implant-supported dentures aren’t only a stable alternative but a comfortable one.
Patients who have lost most of their teeth don’t need an implant for each tooth lost. Dr. Neal Edwards places four to six implants strategically in your mouth upon which a natural-looking denture rest. After the initial consultation, we establish premium areas in your mouth with a dense jawbone to support an implant. Then, we surgically insert four to six implants into your jawbone and place a denture.
Dental implants often stabilize lower jaw dentures because they tend to slip as you use your mouth. However, dental implants can hold both upper and lower jaw dentures in place for improved oral function. Patients with implant-supported dentures can eat what they want, speak clearly, and smile confidently without worrying about their teeth.
