Take your dentures to the next step with dental implants
Reclaim your smile and your confidence
Denture implants are another great way to reclaim your smile and your confidence. Denture implants can help keep your dentures in place, taking away your worries about eating and talking with your dentures. Implants are metal bases that are secured to your jaw. Eventually, they fuse with the jaw bone to provide a solid, secure foundation for the dentures. Next, your dentures are secured to the implant. There are several reasons for going this route, including that it can help preserve the remaining jaw bone from further deterioration. Because it ultimately becomes a part of your jaw, it provides a very steady base for your dentures and improves your facial structure.

Two Common Types Of Denture Implants
There are two most common types of denture implants: removable implants and fixed implants. With either option, you can choose between full dentures or partial dentures.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants replace tooth roots. They provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) dentures as well as removable replacement dentures. Dental implants are placed within your jaw bone, and as they heal, they become a permanent part of your jaw.
How painful is a dental implant?
There should be no pain during the dental implant procedure because you will have been given anesthesia ahead of time. As the numbing wears off, most patients tend to experience some discomfort. But this can depend on how involved the procedure is and how many implants were put in.
How long do dental implants last?
Nothing, including dental implants, lasts forever. But with proper care and maintenance, a dental implant can last for over 20 years. Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution because they are firmly attached to the jawbone. This stability also helps support the dental structure and withstand chewing and biting.
Are dental implants safe?
Dental implants are a safe, well-established treatment for teeth replacement. Much like natural teeth, they last as long as you take good care of them. Contemporary dental implants have been used for over 30 years, and they are typically made from titanium.
