Dentures are removable appliances that can replace your missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you have lost all of your natural teeth, due to gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health.
Dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth—things that people often take for granted.
Sometimes some of your teeth can be saved to preserve your jawbone and provide stability and support for the denture. An overdenture fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth after they have been prepared by your dentist. Implants can serve the same function, too.
Implant Supported Overdenture
When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile.
Dental implants are used to help retain the denture, so when you eat, talk, and laugh, the denture securely stays in the mouth.
