Implant Supported Dentures
Park Ridge, IL Periodontist
Advantages of Implant Supported Dentures
Dentures are often ill fitting and lack stability, cause irritation to the gums and may make it difficult to eat certain foods. Patients who have received implant supported dentures from DiFranco Periodontics and Dental Implants often report feeling like they have their natural teeth again. They report being able to eat all foods and enjoy smiling confidently. Read our patient testimonials.
Removable Implant Supported Dentures
Removable supported dentures can be removed, but are far more secure than those without the support of dental implants.
Removable supported dentures can be secured with as few as 4 implants. With more implants, the denture becomes more secure. After a complete examination, Dr. DiFranco will provide you with the best teeth replacement options for your unique needs.
Fixed Implant Supported Dentures
Fixed dentures permanently replace a full set of teeth and prevent bone loss. Because of their strength, dental implants are the ideal anchor for dentures. When dentures are attached to implants, they will never become loose or slip.
Implant Secured Partial Fixed Denture
A bridge (partial fixed denture) is used to replace one or several missing teeth. Without an implant, the bridge is secured to the remaining tooth or teeth. In some instances, this can cause loosening of the anchoring teeth (abutment). With an implant, the bridge (partial fixed denture) is not reliant on surrounding teeth.
Whether you are considering a full set of dentures or a partial denture (or bridge), implant-supported dentures provide strength and durability for a long-lasting, functional and beautiful smile.
