Implants are really a well-established modality for replacing one or more teeth or for helping to secure dentures and one of my patients I can remember she had an upper denture and just she always, not really pleased because she's in the public a lot she spoke, she sang and she just didn't have full confidence, there was always going to be rock solid up there for her, so After a period of time we, she decided to go ahead and get the implants and then in the upper arch so that we could then secure the denture for her, and the day that she walked out and that denture was attached to it I mean she was, she couldn't stop hugging everybody in the office because of how secure it made her denture feel and how confident she was to be able to live her life in the community in a way that she wanted to knowing that that thing's not going anywhere.

Because dental implants are structured like your natural teeth, they function and look more like your natural teeth than other teeth replacement options. Dental implant patients experience high success rates and never have to worry about tooth decay or root canals.
A dental implant has a bio-friendly post that’s usually made out of titanium. The post is nested in your jawbone. And just like with your natural teeth, the post will bond with your jawbone. This creates a secure, reliable hold.
Your dentist will complete your dental implants by attaching your replacement tooth or teeth to the implant abutment above the gumline. Your restored dental implant is designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth for a brilliant looking full set of teeth.
Single-Tooth & Multi-Tooth Replacements
Our dentists recommend dental implants as the best long-term option for replacing a single tooth.
Multi-tooth replacements are similar to dental bridges. Whereas dental bridges use your natural teeth to secure a series of replacement teeth, multi-tooth replacements are held in place using dental implants. Our dentists prefer this option because it puts less strain on your natural teeth. Dental bridges have been known to increase the risk of tooth decay on adjoining teeth.
You’ve probably heard or experienced these common denture complaints:
- They irritate my gums
- They limit what I can chew
- They make it hard to speak clearly
Using mini dental implants to stabilize your dentures will alleviate these issues. The implants allow your denture to lock into place and can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. You’ll never have to worry about the embarrassment of your dentures coming loose or falling out when you move your jaw.
