Implant-Supported Dentures from Whitinsville Family Dentistry

Dentures have changed a lot in the last two hundred years, but one thing has remained the same: They slip and slide, causing discomfort and embarrassment. Not so anymore! Dr. Cnossen and Dr. Tubo offer state-of-the-art dental implants to help your denture lock into place. Implant-retained dentures are now considered the standard of care for lower dentures and are quickly becoming the standard of care for upper dentures, too!

The types of implants and the way they can connect to your denture are numerous. The most common and cost-effective denture attachment system is simply two small implants in the very front of the bottom jaw to lock the lower denture in place. For added stability, up to six implants can be placed to lock in the bottom and six to eight can be used to lock in the top.

The attachments can be changed and can vary from snap-on dentures, to ball clips, to removable magnets. Some dentures can even be attached to your implants with permanent screws that your dentist places. At your implant denture consultation, we’ll review the various options and help you determine which system is right for you.

Mini Dental Implants

If you want to walk in with your denture and walk out with attached implants, we also offer mini dental implants. These are smaller than traditional implants and usually do not last forever, but they are less expensive and offer an immediate solution to your denture stability needs. Sometimes, we will place traditional implants and use mini implants to give you some stability while they heal.

If you currently wear a denture and would like to discuss the options for stabilizing it with implants, please call our Whitinsville dental office for a consultation. Dr. Cnossen and Dr. Tubo will discuss your options, review your medical history, and help you determine if the implant-supported denture is right for you! Are you in Uxbridge, Northbridge, Grafton, or Douglas? We serve these communities as well.
