A smile just isn't a smile if it's incomplete. Missing teeth cause a host of problems, from difficulty speaking and eating to low self-confidence to jawbone deterioration. Don't give up on your smile. Advances in dental materials and technology have made dentures more lifelike and comfortable than ever.
What is a Denture?
A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Dentures can be closed or open palate, and they may require denture adhesive to hold them in place.
Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. For a completely secure denture without the use of clips or adhesive, Dr. Miller may recommend implant-supported dentures for you. The process consists of a brief surgery, during which an oral surgeon can place a few dental implant posts in your jaw to hold the dentures in place. With implant-supported dentures, you won't have to worry about slippage, and your prosthetic will feel safe and sound.
