Dentistry Today can make custom unsecured dentures as well as secured dentures. When we fabricate dentures, we allow patients to check the appearance, look of the teeth in the face, and check the bite. It takes several steps to make a try-in wax denture that allows the patient to see what the teeth will look like and how the dentures will fit into their overall smile and facial appearance.

However, unsecured dentures are not always the answer for people who have lost all of their teeth. Wearing unsecured dentures can be painful, inconvenient, and awkward. Such dentures also make it difficult to chew a variety of foods and affect how you pronounce words, therefore affecting your speech.

Luckily, Dr. Barrilleaux offers a variety of modern dental implant-based tooth replacement solutions. Any of these solutions can dramatically improve your quality of life; such as enabling proper chewing and speaking, increasing comfort and self-confidence, and encouraging the consumption of a wider variety of foods.

Implant-retained Dentures:

Removable implant overdentures provide stability by attaching new teeth to two or more dental implants, making this a cost-effective option. You can chew a variety of foods with confidence and your sense of taste is unaffected. Your teeth can be removed for cleaning and the need for denture adhesives is eliminated.

For an even more secure fit, a dental bar is fixed to your jaw bone with two more implants, providing stronger support for your removable dentures. Your new teeth can be still be removed for cleaning and there is no need for dental adhesive.

Fixed implant supported bridges are a more durable solution with natural-looking replacement teeth, secured on four or more dental implants. This solution stimulates bone maintenance, restores chewing function, and maintains taste sensation.
