If you have lost multiple teeth and are replacing them with dentures, our skilled dentists can provide denture stabilization to ensure that your teeth remain stable. Dentures are stabilized using a few strategically placed implants. These implants anchor the dentures so that you can speak, smile and eat without worry that your dentures will slip. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Don Solooki, Dr. Edon Hirt and Dr. Glenn Roeder and to learn more about implant-supported dentures and denture stabilization in Los Angeles, California, call Calm Dental at 213-624-3333
If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for multiple missing teeth, our dentists may recommend implant-supported dentures. Implant-retained dentures are very similar in form to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by dental implants. Very often, denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can even retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. The dental implants, which are similar in appearance to screws, are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require four to six dental implants per denture. Once the implants have been placed and allowed sufficient healing time, your denture is attached on top. Implants provide your denture with exceptional stability. In fact, many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function like their natural teeth.
