Implant-supported Dentures and Bridges Palos Verdes
The alternative to conventional dentures and bridges
Implant-supported dentures and bridges are a modern way to replace teeth when most or all of the teeth are missing on the lower or upper jaw. Implant-supported dentures and bridges are similar to conventional ones, but they are supported by implants and not by natural teeth.
Stabilize your dentures with Implant-Supported Dentures
We use implants to stabilize your dentures so that your dentures don’t slip, are more comfortable and take away the need for glue. Implant-supported dentures are also an option for a patient who is having his or her teeth extracted, and are a lot more affordable than full dental implants.
A denture can be stabilized with as little as two implants in an arch. The more implants used, the greater the stability. More implants can also give a more tooth-like appearance and feel to your dentures. Dr. Palani can eliminate the pink plastic sides and allow the teeth replicas to emerge from the gum just like natural teeth.Back to the top
A bridge is composed of one or more teeth supported by two natural teeth on either side. In an implant-supported bridge, the bridge is supported on either side by an implant.
An implant-supported bridge is another option to full dental implants and an option for dentures. Unlike dentures, bridges are permanently fixed in place and are usually made of porcelain, and not acrylic. Bridges act very much like natural teeth.
