Implant Dentures

Modern dentistry offers individuals a number of solutions to improving their oral health and enhancing their smiles. One of these is dentures (“false teeth”) – prosthetic devices designed as replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. No longer is a person with missing teeth limited to conventional, removable dentures. Today, “implant dentures” are being requested by those who are unhappy with their removable dentures. Typical problems associated with wearing traditional dentures are when eating or talking. Implant dentures offer stability and a comfortable, snug fit. They will not cause a person to feel embarrassed due to unwanted shifting or moving.

At Shodhan Dentistry in Desert Hot Springs, Dr. Harin Shodhan or Dr. Keyur Shodhan commonly meet with individuals who would like to replace their missing teeth but want to avoid the messiness and embarrassing incidences that can come along with wearing traditional dentures. This type of dental restoration is typically performed by anchoring two titanium implants into the top and/or bottom jaw, and then attaching a small bar to the exposed implants. The bars then lock with the corresponding pieces, which allows for a comfortably secure seal, preventing any accidental or unintentional slippage.

The best candidates for implant dentures are those in good general and oral health, and have adequate jaw bone. In general, those who are not regarded as good candidates for undergoing an implant procedure include:

  • Younger individuals whose jawbones are not fully developed
  • People with specific medical conditions
  • People who take certain medications
  • People who severely grind or clench their teeth
  • Heavy smokers

During your appointment with either of our implant dentist professionals, Dr. Harin Shodhan or Dr. Keyur Shodhan, you will be able to discuss all of your concerns and ask any questions you may have. At this time, you will learn if you qualify for implant dentures, and whether or not this is the best dental solution for you.
