Don’t Settle When It Comes to Your Smile

Experiencing daily challenges and embarrassment from tooth loss is common. But even so, missing teeth from oral trauma or decay can pose numerous challenges that affect more than smile aesthetics. The past saw dentures as the only option when it comes to smile restoration. But with advances in dental technology, you now have more options than ever to rebuild your smile. If you’re finding yourself with missing teeth or living with the downsides of conventional dentures, Standley Shores Dental Group of Westminster, CO provides a broad range of dental implant services to restore your complete smile.

Dental implants, a biocompatible material fusing with the underlying bone, are considered one of the most advanced and comfortable ways to restore smiles. Once inserted into the jawbone, dental implants fuse with the jawbone and create a durable and permanent foundation to hold new teeth. Dental implants can be used to support a single tooth, multiple teeth, a full arch of teeth, implant-supported dentures, and our All-on-4 treatment protocol, making them the most versatile tooth restoration option on the market!

Removable Vs Fixed Solutions

Dental implants offer versatile solutions for replacing missing teeth through fixed or removable restorations. While dentures might appear cost-effective, they have drawbacks such as reliance on adhesives, slipping issues due to lighter materials, and potential gum irritation, speech problems, and jawbone deterioration. However, implant-supported dentures in Westminster, CO, address these concerns by enhancing strength, stability, comfort, and aesthetics.

These denture implants utilize strategically placed implant posts to securely anchor the removable denture, eliminating the need for adhesives and the fear of teeth displacement while talking. This approach allows for creating permanent dentures using durable materials without covering the palate, promoting superior functionality. By fostering bone growth and maintaining natural appearance and function, these permanent implant-supported dentures contribute to lifelong oral health and beauty, thanks to the expertise of our skilled implant team.

Options Built To Last

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a type of dental prosthesis that provides a stable and secure fit for patients that have lost all or most of their teeth. Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums, implant-supported dentures are anchored to dental implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone. This provides a more natural and comfortable fit, as well as improved chewing and speaking abilities. Implant-supported dentures can be either fixed or removable and offer a long-lasting solution for restoring a patient’s smile and confidence.

Snap-On Dentures

All-on-4 dental implants pertain to the treatment protocol we use to restore a full mouth of teeth. This technique uses four dental implant posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone and is designed to maximize the use of available bone and provide a secure and stable foundation for the denture. All-on-4 dental implants can be a suitable option for people who have lost all or most of their teeth, have significant bone loss in their jaw, or are looking for a more permanent solution than traditional dentures. This approach can reduce the need for bone grafting procedures, which can help to save time and reduce overall treatment costs. All-on-4 dental implants offer patients a natural-looking, functional, and long-lasting solution for restoring their smile and quality of life.

Denture Stabilization

Denture stabilization is a process that involves improving the fit and retention of dentures to the gums and surrounding tissues. Denture stabilization can be achieved through several methods, including the use of denture adhesives, relining the denture to fit better, or placing dental implants to anchor the denture in place. The goal of denture stabilization is to improve our patient’s comfort, ability to eat, and overall quality of life. By stabilizing the denture, patients can enjoy increased confidence and a more natural-looking smile.

Investing in Your Lifelong Smile

When it comes to oral health, we strive to make it as simple and affordable as possible.

With the lifelong benefits of implants for dentures, dental implants are one of the best investments you can make in your smile. By partnering with leading insurance carriers and top-rated third-party financing options, investing in your new smile is easy and affordable!
