For many patients with missing teeth, wearing dentures is a satisfactory solution for restoring the smile.
However, since dentures sit on top of the gums, the jawbone where the root is missing starts to deteriorate. Over time, this can lead to severe jaw bone loss that causes teeth to move or drift, bite imbalances, jaw pain, and even facial deformities.
At our practice in Jacksonville, AL, Drs. Young and Rowe offer implant supported dentures to denture wearers looking for a better option for replacing missing teeth. While dentures offer numerous benefits, implant supported dentures provide the added benefits of dental implants to restore and rebuild your smile from the inside out.
If you’re tired of dealing with messy adhesives, dentures slipping while you eat or speak, and jaw problems, implant supported dentures could be the ideal solution for you.
In this procedure, Dr. Young will place a set of dental implants around the jaw to serve as stable posts for a dentures attachment. Once the dental implants have healed and integrated with the jawbone in a few months, he can affix a set of dentures to the top of the implants so they are secured in place.
Dr. Young and his team in Jacksonville, AL, serve as a one-stop shop for all your dentistry needs. Whether you are missing one tooth or several teeth, Dr. Young is here to provide a high level of care and ensure you receive treatment that will not only restore your smile but also help you maintain optimal oral health for a lifetime.
Dr. Young has completed advanced training in the field of implants dentistry, including continuing education programs at the University of Augusta and the Misch International Implant Institute. He uses the latest technologies to ensure proper implant placement and offers sedation to make your visit that much more comfortable.
