Implant-Retained Dentures

At Lusk Family Dentistry, we regularly create new sets of implant-retained dentures for our patients who are searching for a comprehensive tooth replacement option.

Whether you’re currently wearing conventional dentures and are tired of how they slide around or are brand new to the world of artificial teeth replacements, our Farmington, NM implant-retained dentures can help improve your quality of life.

The Best of Both Worlds

Implant-retained dentures are unique because they provide your smile with the best aspects of tooth replacement: artificial tooth crowns, gums, and tooth roots. When you choose these snap-in dentures, you get the benefits of dentures with the added security and stability of dental implants. 

Dentures for Appearance and Chewing

Our implant-retained dentures are available as both complete dentures and partial dentures. That means that whether you’re missing a few teeth or an entire arch’s worth, you can replace them with an attractive and lifelike option. 

When you lose teeth, it’s easy also to lose the sense of normalcy that goes with them. Everyday tasks can become complicated, and you may feel embarrassed or ashamed to go out in public without a full set of teeth. 

Replacing missing teeth with implant-retained dentures changes all that. Your dentures will allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence once more. 

Dental Implants to Support Your Jaw

Dentures have many advantages, but their main downside is typically that they can be ill-fitting and challenging to keep in place. Because traditional dentures aren’t secured to your mouth, they can sometimes move around and shift in your mouth when you eat or talk. 

Without a mechanism to hold them in place, dentures will never feel as natural as actual teeth. Implant-retained dentures in Farmington, however, eliminate that problem. 

In addition to supporting your dentures, your dental implants also play an essential role in preserving the integrity of your smile. Implants help eliminate the damage to your jaw bone that occurs when you lose natural teeth. Because the implant posts reside deep in your jaw just like natural tooth roots, they provide the stimulation and support necessary for your facial structure and jaw health. 

A Convenient Way to Restore Your Smile

We use dental implants alongside dentures to create a restoration that 1) helps prevent jaw bone loss; 2) is more affordable than replacing every missing tooth with dental implants; 3) will stay in place as you go through your daily activities, and 4) is easy to clean and protect. 

At Lusk Family Dentistry, our Farmington dentist wants to see you in the best oral health possible, which includes replacing missing teeth. 

If you’ve lost natural teeth, you don’t have to live with gaps or holes in your smile. Our snap-in teeth provide a reliable, long-term solution and a way to maximize your dentures.
