Implant Supported Dentures—the Reliable Alternative
Traditional dentures are a popular solution to missing teeth, but they’re not always the most dependable one. They can easily slip while you’re eating, speaking or laughing, even if you’re using the recommended adhesive cream. It can be hard not to feel embarrassed once your little secret—you’re missing teeth—becomes known. At Newburyport Family Dental we have a reliable solution that still incorporates dentures but in a secure fashion that gives you true peace of mind. Implant supported dentures combine some of the best features of two different teeth replacement options. Like dentures, they’re a cost-effective way to regain your full smile. Like dental implants, implant supported dentures keep your new teeth firmly in place because they’re anchored to titanium posts that are permanently placed in your jawbone. Since there’s no friction from these fixed dentures, they won’t irritate your gums. Instead, you can expect a reliable and functional smile for years to come!

Comprehensive Dental Care
As general dentists, we manage every stage of your treatment in one location, from initial consultation to additional procedures that may be required before you receive implant supported dentures. This is an advantage specialists can’t offer. In order to place your implant posts, our team will need to remove any remaining teeth you have that are going to be replaced by dentures. We offer tooth extractions at our Newburyport, MA office with exceptional care every day. If your jawbone has suffered deterioration, it may not have sufficient mass or strength to support implant posts. Using a procedure called bone grafting we can rebuild your jawbone by placing small portions of bone into the area. Once your jawbone heals, we should be able to insert the posts needed to anchor your implant supported dentures. With our training and experience, nothing need stand in the way of you regaining a complete, confident smile!
