Remember when being a toothless five-year-old charmed friends and family? Toothless smiles are awkward in adults, but the good news is that implant-supported dentures from Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch are a state-of-the-art solution.
As you may know, a dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A single post can support a single artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a set of dentures.
Implant-supported dentures have a number of advantages over traditional dentures:
- More stable. Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
- Natural in appearance. They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
- Built to last. Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
- Prevents bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.
Implant-supported dentures can help you captivate audiences once again, and they are among the procedures available at Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch. We have placed them in patients from Mission Viejo, Las Sorres, and San Juan Capistrano, who also come to us for general and family dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.
