Implant Supported Partials and Dentures

For our patients missing all or many of their teeth, implant supported partials and dentures offer a great deal of opportunity and hope. Working closely with our periodontist, Dr. Hollar is able to design and construct removable partials and dentures that attach directly to permanent implants.

Implant supported partials and dentures provide several advantages over conventional methods. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported partials and dentures are designed to be more comfortable and stable. This allows for better biting and chewing capacity. In addition, because implant-supported partials and dentures will replace some of your tooth roots, your bone is better preserved. With conventional dentures, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth roots begins to resorb (deteriorate). Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.

In the long-term, implants can be more esthetic and easier to maintain than conventional dentures, and after a short time, you will experience restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak.

If you have questions about implant supported partials and dentures, please contact our office for more information.
