Consider Dental Implants – The Preferred Method of Tooth Replacement!
Dental implants are highly regarded as the preferred method of tooth replacement, and for good reason. Implants replace both the root and crown portions of the teeth, restoring function to your bite and esthetics to your smile. In addition, the post of the implant helps maintain jaw bone health each time you chew – a benefit that does not occur with other forms of tooth replacement. Getting a dental implant will not only help you look better, but can help you avoid future issues and complications.
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant supported dentures are dentures that are securely anchored in your mouth thanks to dental implants placed within the bone at several key spots. The dentures lock into place and do not move. This means your dentures will not fall out, slip or loosen while you go through normal daily activities.
The denture appliance used in implant supported dentures is made differently than traditional denture prosthetics. Instead of sitting on your gums, it is shaped to cover your gums, firmly attach to the implants and give you a more natural smile. Patients of Dr. Schneider who invest in implant supported dentures are often surprised to find that the denture appliances are so lifelike!
