Dental Implants Are An Effective Denture Alternative
Over 90 percent of those who are missing all their teeth choose dentures as their tooth replacement solution. And while dentures are an affordable answer to tooth loss, many patients experience challenges or discomfort during frequent or long-term use. Dr. Patrick Nicosia offers an effective solution to the challenges dentures present with dental implants. We offer both full arch dental implants and implant supported dentures as a more permanent alternative to traditional dentures.
If you have any of these common denture concerns, dental implants may be a good option for you:
- Loose or slipping dentures
- General denture instability
- Awkward noises when speaking
- Diminished ability to taste or eat food
- Dentures falling out
Dentures vs. Full Arch Dental Implants
Dental implants are considered to be the ideal alternative to missing teeth-even more so than dentures. This is because implants closely mimic the function and appearance of natural teeth, while giving you additional security, strength and oral health benefits. To achieve this, Dr. Nicosia can place two to six implants into your jaw, which support a fixed bridge or denture prosthesis. When placed by a trained periodontist like Dr. Nicosia, and with proper care, your implants can last you the rest of your life.
The benefits of full-arch dental implants include:
- Improved stability with no slipping
- Improved speech
- Bite, eat, and taste the foods you love
- Natural look and feeling
- Improved self-confidence
