What exactly are dentures?
Dentures are a prosthesis consisting of false plastic teeth set in a pink base made to mimic your gums. Traditionally, they were designed to be held in place with an over the counter adhesive. This type of denture is removable. Dentures allow the patient to regain ability to eat and speak, though it will take some practice and patience. Full dentures provide more benefits than having no teeth, but they will never feel like natural teeth. You will have to use a certain amount of caution with the variety of foods that you are able to eat. Learning how to navigate your new dentures is a difficult transition
Ask Dr. Alder about implant anchored dentures. By attaching your dentures to a strong post, it will offer you significantly more freedom and comfort.
What are implant anchored dentures?
By anchoring your dentures to dental implants, we are able to provide you much more comfort. Implants are posts that are attached to your jaw, providing a very strong base. For you, this means that your dentures are placed permanently, no adhesives, no worries. You may even find yourself forgetting that you have dentures
