Cosmetic Dentures & Partial Dentures
Even though most dentures are adequately supported by the soft tissues and gums alone, sometimes implants are used to help anchor a patient’s denture. A denture is essentially attached to either two traditional implants, or the alternative….”mini-implants”. This option helps to stabilize and retain the denture in the mouth. The denture will actually “click” into the two positions.
Old dentures (or your existing denture) can usually be retro-fit to accommodate the denture. As far as dentures go, this is the second best denture option for long term. In the opinion of Dr. Luther, almost all lower dentures should be an overdenture because otherwise they just “float” around, making it difficult to speak and talk. This option still makes the denture removable each night.
