How can I replace teeth if I don’t want dentures?

We offer several options for tooth replacement. Dental implants or bridges are appropriate if you’re missing just a few teeth. However, dentures are often the best choice if several or all teeth in an arch are missing.

You may have a negative reaction to the idea of dentures, which is understandable. After all, dentures in the past were pretty much one-size-fits-all, which didn’t provide a lot of room for customizing their look, fit, and feel. But we’ve seen some amazing advances in the way dentures are created that allow us to make your dentures unique to you.

With implant-supported dentures at our Chesapeake, VA dental office, your worries about slipping and discomfort are a thing of the past! The secret to keeping dentures stable is dental implants. By working with our team of surgeons and lab technicians we can design a secure, comfortable, and aesthetic prosthesis.

Implant-supported dentures also referred to as overdentures, are connected to dental implants placed at different locations in your jaw. Your dentures are customized just for you and made to attach securely to the dental implants. No more worries about slipping and moving – your new dentures will stay put when attached to dental implants. 

Would you like to learn more about implant-supported dentures and if they're a good choice for you? Please call us, and we’ll be happy to arrange an appointment with one of our dentists to discuss your needs.
