Dental implants have changed the way cosmetic dentists approach replacing missing teeth. With exceptional stability, functionality, and aesthetics, dental implants have quickly become one of the most popular restorative procedures at Beautiful Smiles. With that in mind, not all patients are good candidates for dental implants, and there are also those who simply want an alternative to traditional dentures that doesn’t require a full set of dental implants. Fortunately, implant supported dentures can offer an effective solution with many of the same advantages as dental implants.
The first step to determining candidacy for implant supported dentures is an oral exam. During this exam, Dr. Harold A. Pollack will review your medical history, take x-rays, and carefully discuss your goals and expectations. Dr. Pollack can recommend which tooth replacement options may be best suited for you.
Ideal candidates for implant supported dentures will have sufficient jawbone density to receive the implants, have healthy gums, and be in good overall health. Implant supported dentures are a popular choice for both patients who have never had dentures before and those who currently have traditional dentures but are seeking an upgrade.
