Dentures are appliances inserted in the mouth to replace missing teeth and provide support for the cheeks and lips. At Pacific Dental Group located in North Hollywood and North Monterey, both of our facilities offer Fixed Dentures as a reliable way to restore your smile.
With Fixed Dentures or implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy permanent dentures that are stable and provide you with a sense of security. Implants are surgically positioned under the gums into your jawbone. Depending on the situation, your dentures can be placed with as little as four or six implants. They simulate the jaw and work like your tooth’s root. Once the implants are placed, the doctor will attach the dentures to the implants so you can enjoy the function of your gums and teeth again. Some of the advantages of implant-supported dentures include:
- Dental implants stimulate the jawbone. It prevents the jawbone from deteriorating, which can lead to facial collapse and other dental problems.
- You will be pleased with how natural implant-supported dentures look and feel.
- Your implant-supported denture appliance stays in your mouth at all times.
