Slipping Dentures? The Novato Dental Implants Dentist Shares His Solution

Written by Dr. McConnell on Jan 17, 2017

It’s hard not for people to notice a gap in your smile where a tooth is missing. And when you know you have such an obvious esthetic problem, your self-confidence plummets.

In the past there were only two options for replacing multiple missing teeth – full and partial dentures. But there are few people who look forward to the prospect of wearing dentures. Most people avoid them because they believe they look unnatural, feel uncomfortable, and slip and shift at the most awkward moments.

Today, our Novato dental implants dentist can create beautiful dentures that look natural and stay firmly in place. How is this possible? The answer is dental implants!

How are Dental Implants Used with Dentures?

The pairing of dental implants and dentures is an example of taking an established procedure and improving it with state-of-the-art technology. Today we use dental implants to support dentures and hold them firmly in place. Implants are placed at four strategic points in your jaw, then attached firmly to your dentures, eliminating all of the usual complaints.

What Happens During the Implant Process?

If we agree that implant-supported dentures are a good choice for you, our dentist will spend some time with you to evaluate your situation and understand your goals. This allows us to deliver an outcome that meets and exceeds expectations.

We use state-of-the-art Cone Beam technology to find the ideal location in your jaw to place the implants. This is an invaluable tool that makes placement of your implants efficient, reducing discomfort and the time you need to spend in the dental chair. This is because Cone Beam technology allows us to map out the placement of your implant before we even begin the process!

After the implants are placed, your natural-looking denture is created with fasteners that line up with the implants. We then use these attachments to lock the denture securely in place.

Enjoy Your Beautiful New Smile!

The result? – A permanent customized denture that never needs to be removed. You don’t have to take the denture out for cleaning, and you don’t have to use messy adhesives to keep it in place. Imagine having dentures that look and feel as close to natural teeth as possible!
