Removable dentures can slip and prevent patients from eating the foods they love. Self-esteem can dwindle, and eventually, the patient may avoid social settings altogether. Implant-retained dentures are made to look and function like natural teeth, allowing patients to eat, smile, and speak with renewed confidence. At our Poughkeepsie dental office, we offer implant-retained dentures with full dental implants and mini dental implants.
For patients with a good health record and enough bone mass to support full-sized dental implants, we typically recommend implant-retained dentures. An oral surgeon places dental implants in the jawbone where tooth roots once were. The implants anchor the denture while also preventing the bone loss or “shrinkage” that occurs when teeth fall out. In many cases, we can retrofit current dentures to receive dental implants.
If you’ve been told you can’t have dental implants, then mini dental implants may be right for you. This same-day procedure involves toothpick-sized implants that are placed in the bone without the need for oral surgery. Dr. Hamburg attaches the denture to the implants in the same visit, so you can leave our office with a solid, stable smile and even enjoy a light meal after the procedure.
With implant dentures, you can say goodbye forever to adhesives and embarrassing slippage. Implant dentures allow you to eat hard-to-chew foods, and they function very similarly to natural teeth. Millions of patients have discovered the benefits of implant dentures. Ask Dr. Hamburg if this solution is right for you!
