Millions of people are affected by the serious oral health issue of tooth loss. The problem can ruin a person’s appearance, and cause simple tasks like chewing food and speaking clearly to become extraordinarily difficult. If tooth loss is left untreated, it can result in further problems, such as facial structure loss and jawbone deterioration.
Dr. Halabo and his team understand the significance of tooth loss, and that is why we work hard to provide our patients with top-quality dentures that are designed to restore the appearance and function of missing teeth. We offer multiple types of dentures, and our team can help you determine the best option for your unique needs. Many of our patients receive outstanding results with removable dentures and denture stabilization implants.
Denture Stabilization Implants
A denture is comprised of prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored base. There are several different possible ways to hold this appliance in place inside the user’s mouth; however, the most effective method is to use denture stabilization implants to ensure that an individual’s dentures remain secure and steady whenever they are in use. Denture stabilization implants are surgically inserted into the user’s jawbone, and they are specifically built to support dentures.
While the implants are permanently attached, the denture itself can be taken out for easy cleaning. It can then be quickly re-inserted into the mouth for general use. This makes removable dentures with denture stabilization implants a very convenient tooth loss solution for many people. Although they can take some getting used to, most of our patients find that their dentures feel quite comfortable and very natural to use. If maintained and cared for properly, a set of removable dentures should last for up to eight years.
