Dentures have a reputation for being uncomfortable and constantly falling out or else feeling unstable, but when dentures are installed over dental implants, they can be very sturdy and function as well as your real teeth. Our dentist provides All-on-4® implants in Alexandria, Virginia, to keep your dentures well-supported and comfortable so that you can eat and speak normally. Call 703-354-0111 to schedule your consultation at McQuiston Dental to find out if implant-supported dentures are right for you.
If you are missing multiple teeth and looking to replace them with a solution that is stable and comfortable, implant-supported dentures may be just what you need. Implant-supported dentures cover your teeth similarly to traditional dentures, but they are secured in place over dental implants, allowing for improved function when eating and speaking. Traditional dentures can sometimes feel loose and can even fall out, but implant-supported dentures can restore not only your smile but your confidence as well when you don’t have to worry about a potentially embarrassing mishap with your false teeth.
We will first install high-quality dental implants directly into your jawbone. The implants are placed strategically in your mouth in order to best accommodate your dentures. For the most stable fit, four to six implants are usually required. Once your implants have sufficiently fused with your jawbone, we will then affix your customized dentures over them. This allows for maximum stability, and in fact, implant-supported dentures can feel and function like natural teeth for many patients.
