Dentures and Dental Implants ~ Palm Springs Implant Dentist Restores Missing Teeth
Many Palm Springs denture wearers turn to dental implants when they find themselves growing tired of the sometimes embarrassing situations that dentures can cause. Loose dentures tend to click and clack while conversing or slip out of place while eating a meal. Many patients who use dentures in Palm Springs come to Dr. Sheila Sales at Affinity Dental to find a solution for their dentures problems.
We recommend to our patients in Palm Springs, dental implants to stabilize and secure dentures. Receiving a dental implant is a simple solution that can change a person’s life. Once the dental implant (titanium root) is placed and integrated with the jaw bone (which takes about three months), then the denture can be secured, completing the dental implant process. Often, a simple modification to your existing denture is all that is needed to secure it to the new dental implant. Receiving dental implants in Palm Springs, CA will allow for patients to no longer worry about their dentures moving against their will. With implant supported dentures, patients can bite into apples, chew steaks and enjoy everything they did before they were missing teeth. This simple solution restores the mouth and often makes our patients feel youthful again.
Dr. Sales, DDS will consult with patients before any treatment is begun to make sure that patients are good candidates for implants. She will check for jaw bone density and go over the goals of her patients. Many patients who are seeking implant supported dentures in Palm Springs are happy to find that a full arch of dentures can be stabilized using as little as two to five dental implants. The number of dental implants needed is dependent on the expectations of our Palm Springs denture patients. If the goal is to merely stabilize the denture, than two implants may be all that is needed. However, if our denture patient wants 100% modality, than four or more implants may be the best treatment plan.
