Are you tired of your dentures slipping when you eat? Is it difficult to speak confidently because you worry about your dentures falling out? You can enjoy unmatched security using a treatment that mimics your natural teeth. We can use dental implants to stabilize your denture, so you can chew, speak, and smile knowing your teeth will stay firmly in place.
A traditional denture rests on top of your gum tissue and stays in position using suction or an adhesive. New technologies and materials allow them to fit more comfortably than ever, but they will still move around a little bit. Denture stabilization anchors them in place to feel confident as you go about your day.
Your dentist in Plano surgically inserts dental implant posts into the jawbone to act as new roots. Your jaw fuses to the posts to provide a stable foundation for your denture. You’ll never need to worry about any slipping or irritation, so you can enjoy your favorite foods again.
When compared to a conventional denture, an implant-retained option offers several advantages, including:

After your jawbone has healed, your custom-made denture is attached using one of two methods:
Once your smile is complete, it can last for decades with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly. You’ll enjoy a lifelong solution to invest in your dental health and your quality of life.
