For many decades, patients who were missing all of their teeth had essentially one option when it came to repairing their smiles: traditional dentures. While dentures do help countless men and women enjoy a relatively varied diet, there are numerous drawbacks associated with these removable prosthetics. Ill-fitting dentures can be extremely uncomfortable, and are prone to slipping; this can lead to embarrassing social interactions and contributes to difficulty when eating. Fortunately, today’s dental implant technology makes it possible to achieve a natural-looking smile and improved function with implant-supported dentures.
Why Choose Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are custom dental prosthetics that are meticulously crafted to look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. They are created specifically to fit each patient’s unique jaw shape for optimal comfort and stability. First, the dental implants are strategically placed within the gingival tissue and the bone of the jaw. Over time, the biocompatible implants fuse with the bone tissue, a natural process called osseointegration. They serve as sturdy, permanent anchors for your dentures.
At the Milwaukee, WI dental practice of Dr. Barry R. Franzen, we believe that every patient deserves to enjoy the benefits of a full, strong, and healthy smile. For edentulous patients – those who are missing all teeth in both arches – the quest for a beautiful smile and the freedom to eat a complete diet needn’t be a challenge, thanks to the technology of dental implants. With implant-supported dentures, you can smile, speak, and enjoy your favorite foods with complete comfort and confidence.
