When patients learn about dental implants they are often told the benefits of using dental implants to replace a single tooth. However, did you know that implants can also be used to hold dentures? At Island Dental Associates in Franklin Square and Shine Dental Associates in Syosset we help patients stabilize their loose dentures with of implant-retained dentures.
Most patients are familiar with full dentures, which are used to replace an entire arch of teeth. They might think of an elderly member of their family who wears dentures. They sometimes learn about the disadvantages of a traditional denture, including poor fit and the inability to keep them firmly in place.
