You may have been wearing conventional dentures for years if you are missing all of your upper or lower teeth. While dentures are extremely reliable and a less expensive treatment option, they can be uncomfortable and often need to be held in place with a denture adhesive, which is particularly true of lower dentures. If you are ready to consider a replacement for your dentures, call Alpine Meadows Family Dental at 801-492-9207. Our dentist, Dr. Daniel Baird, can see you for an appointment to discuss locator-retained overdentures in Lehi, Utah.
Procedure: Locator Retained Overdenture
Procedure: Locator Retained Overdenture (Reline)
Locator-retained overdentures are very similar to regular dentures in appearance. However, where conventional upper dentures adhere themselves to the roof of your mouth and lower dentures need denture cream to stay in their proper positions, locator-retained dentures are simply snapped into place over fittings that have been attached to dental implants.
This type of restoration can provide greater comfort than conventional dentures and better stability when eating and speaking. The implants also offer replacements for the missing tooth roots and can help your jaw stay strong and healthy.
We invite you to call us and speak with a member of our team to schedule a visit for an examination and consultation with our dentist.
