Secure Advanced Dentures in Santa Fe

Dentures are extremely useful for patients with missing teeth, but denture slippage is a common problem. Even the best-fitted set of dentures can occasionally slip, particularly in the lower arch. Denture slippage can be embarrassing and frustrating, but implant-supported dentures eliminate this predicament.

Implant-supported dentures are secured to dental implants, which are set in the bone of your jaw. These dentures appear entirely natural, and they will not shift or slip like conventional dentures.

Overdentures are similar to implant-supported dentures. However, while implant-supported dentures are fixed and can only be removed by your dentist, overdentures can conveniently be removed for cleaning or sleeping. The dental implants stay in place, but the overdenture piece can be removed and reattached as you like.
