Implant-Retained, Gum Supported Overdentures Arvada, CO
For many people going through tooth loss, dentures are the readily available answer. Unfortunately, they are not always the best solution, at least not when they are just supported by the gums and an adhesive. That's why we offer an implant-locking model of dentures that still rely on gum support, but benefit from implants as well, to give them a better hold and more reliable performance overall.
Gum Support for Stability
Many implant locking dentures still rely on the gums for support. These models only require the minimal number of implants and in most cases, work just fine with two. Once the dentures are locked in place, the gums provide a solid base for them to sit on and offer a good sturdy hold so that the user can chew and do other standard activities. Careful dental molding is done to make them as comfortable as possible, and the implants used help reduce sliding that causes discomfort in most standard dentures.
Implant Locking for a Sturdy Hold
One of the biggest issues with standard dentures is that they tend to fall out. They just don't remain locked in place during use and it's embarrassing when teeth fall out during conversation or while eating. Implant-locking dentures snap into dental implants in order to hold the denture firmly in place. When in use, our patients don't worry about the dentures slipping out or causing any problems at all. They offer a firm and reliable hold that you can count on, yet the dentures can still be removed if necessary, making them easy to clean and maintain.
More Affordable than Implants
Dental implants are a modern marvel that creates realistic looking teeth that look and function just like your natural teeth do. Unfortunately, they are quite costly when used on their own. We've combined dental implants with standard dentures, to create a blended technology that's much more affordable. It makes small use of implants and then relies on the gums themselves for an effective chewing mechanism that's cost-effective. If you want the functionality of implants, but don't want the price that comes with them, this denture solution is a good option for you to consider.
A Natural Look
Dentures can look quite natural when designed properly, but there's a chance that they are going to slip out of place. When this happens, the natural look that comes from traditional dentures quickly vanishes. That's why implant locking dentures are so useful. They offer that firm hold that keeps the teeth firmly locked in place whenever they are in use. You'll enjoy a high quality, natural look with the faux teeth, and really love showing them off more than standard dentures.

REFERRING DOCTORS LOVE US
"Had an overall great experience with Dr. Ryan. The staff was very courteous and professional. Most important, the work they did, (two implants, to hold lower dentures) was very secure and I'm free of the hassle and pain. I was concerned at first but he answered all my questions and the whole procedure went well. I definitely would recomend them if you need that type of work done. 2 thumbs up!"
