Implant-Secured Dentures in Oxnard, CA

A traditional denture is a set of prosthetic teeth that are attached to an acrylic base. Many patients will need to utilize an adhesive gel to get their denture to stay in place while in use. A common complaint among long-term denture wearers is denture slippage. Denture slippage occurs because traditional dentures do not have anything anchoring them in place, meaning they are more likely to shift around when you are speaking or chewing. Often, the fear of denture slippage keeps denture wearers from enjoying their dental restoration because they are at risk of their dentures falling out. To combat denture slippage, Dr. Haddad offers a more secure tooth replacement option: implant-secured dentures.

Implant-secured dentures utilize strategically placed dental implants to anchor your denture in place permanently. The dental implants utilize a titanium post which must be inserted beneath your own soft tissue via a surgical procedure. As the post heals, it will fuse together with your jawbone, giving your dental restoration support similar to tooth roots. The implant post is secured to the dental restoration using abutments. Once complete, the patient can enjoy major quality-of-life improvements including no more worrying about denture slippage, and no more dietary restrictions. Implant-secured dentures have a high patient satisfaction rating among long term denture-wearers because of these benefits.

Dr. Haddad offers tooth replacement options to address all concerns and will work with you to find a treatment plan that suits your dental health and budgetary needs. If you are missing teeth, we recommend scheduling an appointment as soon as possible to discuss your tooth replacement options in Oxnard, CA. Missing teeth can severely impact your dental health as well as your confidence. We look forward to helping you restore your smile.
