What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures consist of a dental prosthetic that is anchored to the jawbone by strategically placed dental implants.* Implants are often called the gold standard for tooth replacement due to their ability to closely emulate teeth in both function and appearance. They can take the place of the teeth’s roots to provide a sturdy foundation for the dentures – not to mention enhance the smile and encourage jawbone stability.

If you want the very best in dentures, we encourage you to consider implant-supported dentures.

Modern dental technology has allowed dentists like Dr. Newkirk to build implant-supported dentures with the following advantages over their removable counterparts:
