- Posted on: Apr 15 2021
Patient often don’t realize how the loss of one or more teeth can impact their lives. They discover that tooth loss keeps them from enjoying their favorite foods or shining a smile at a stranger. This impacts one’s confidence and quality of life dramatically. When one or more teeth are missing, it is essential that patients book a consultation appointment with Dr. David S. Frey of Beverly Hills, California to speak to a professional about their options.
Are dentures right for me?
Patients who are missing all their teeth in the dental arch will find that dentures are the best way to replace their smile. Traditional full dentures are made of high-quality acrylic and require patients to use denture adhesives to keep them in place. However, many patients find that these types of dentures are fake in appearance, ill-fitted, or difficult to maintain in place with adhesives alone. At this point, many patients will ask their dentist about the benefits of implant-supported dentures.
How does an implant-supported denture work?
Dr. David S. Frey of Beverly Hills, California describes the implant-supported denture, or “implant-retained denture,” as a conservative tooth replacement option. It uses a more natural-looking denture that snaps into place along the dental arch with four dental implants. The dental implants are made of titanium and provide the proper foundation for these more conservative dentures which are custom-made to match the patient’s smile. The implants are fused with the bone, and this integration ensures that they are stable and durable. Patients then have their denture placed with the implant and enjoy better fit and function.
What are the benefits of implant-supported dentures?
These dentures are:
- More stable and durable
- Highly functional
- Supportive of maintaining bone
- Great for eliminating a sunken jaw appearance caused by bone resorption
- Perfect for patients seeking more confidence with dentures
- Affordable and a smart investment in the smile
