Implant Dentures :
Implants can significantly improve the quality of life of those who wear dentures. Please ask us, and we will determine if you are a good candidate for implants.
Implants can be used to improve the retention of existing dentures, thereby creating a “tighter, more natural fit and feel.”
Implants can also be used to create a prosthesis that is “fixed” in place and does not need to be removed by the patient. Patients often say that “these feel like my own teeth.”
