With implants, we stabilize dentures so you can eat the foods you love again, or we can even replace your denture completely with permanent teeth that you never take out. Many of our implant patients come to us because they hate their dentures. Even the best made denture can be unstable or loose in certain cases.
In this case, this patient was fed up with his lower partial denture. Because he had few natural teeth to rest it on, his partial moved when he chewed, causing pain and damaging the few remaining teeth until another dentist told him the only option left was a complete denture. We saved those remaining teeth, and with eight implants and a porcelain-covered bridge, this patient was able to throw his denture away forever!

This patient is currently undergoing treatment to restore and align his natural upper teeth also, but he is smiling with confidence now that he doesn't have to worry about his old, loose lower partial denture with metal hooks.
There are many options to restore a full jaw or full mouth, with solutions for all budgets. Other options include implant stabilized dentures and partials.
