Securing dentures with dental implants offers several long term advantages, including:

- Long lasting, stable solution to tooth loss
- A greater sense of comfort and security in your smile
- Minimizes irritation to the mouth, gums, and soft tissues
DENTURES & PARTIALS WHAT TO EXPECT
To find the best tooth replacement option for you, you will undergo a consultation with Dr. Jefferies. During your consultation, we will discuss your dental concerns and cosmetic goals. We will also perform a full evaluation of your smile to assess the condition of your teeth, guns, and jaw. The information obtained during your consultation will be used as a foundation for your personalized treatment plan.
Once the type of dentures to be placed is established, we will tailor your treatment plan. We will then take impressions of your teeth and work with you to create your ideal restoration. Once your dentures are fabricated, we fit and place your dentures to restore beauty and function to your smile.
If dental implants are being used to secure your denture, we may work with a local surgeon for the surgical phase of your implant procedure. Once the implants are placed into the jaw, they will require 3-6 months to fully heal. After the implants have healed, we will take another set of impressions and send them to a dental lab for the fabrication of your final dentures.
During your final appointment, we will secure your new cosmetic dentures to your dental implants for a long lasting, stable solution for your missing teeth.
