Dental Implants vs. Dentures in Lomita, CA
While dentures are convenient because there is no surgery involved, dentures often require replacing every 10 years or so, due to the change in facial structure from bone loss.
Used to replace anywhere from one tooth to an entire arch, implants are the most lifelike tooth replacement available today, replicating both crowns and roots of teeth. Ideal candidates are those with adequate bone or having received bone grafting. Implants provide the ultimate in permanence, function and esthetics for your smile.
Same-Day Dental Implants
Whether you are about to undergo extractions or have worn traditional dentures for years, you can enjoy the immediate benefits of same-day dental implants. This innovative option allows for permanent placement of a series of implant posts and attachment of a fully functional prosthetic – both within one convenient appointment. Enjoy your new smile right from the start.
Implant Supported Dentures
Fashioned in either a removable or fixed method, implant supported dentures are an alternative to traditional removable dentures and are ideal for those new to tooth loss or making the switch from conventional appliances. Your implant denture attaches through a bar or ball-and-socket mechanism to implant posts permanently integrated with jaw bone, delivering a secure, stable bite and brilliant new smile.
Temporary yet convenient, traditional dentures replace teeth by resting atop the gum tissues. This conventional solution may be used to address tooth loss while waiting to begin the implant process or for other transitional means.
Offering an instant smile upgrade, Snap-On Smile® is a custom-made removable appliance snapping right over your existing arch of teeth. It is often used to hide missing, malpositioned or heavily stained teeth along with chips, breaks and unevenness in tooth structure, creating a balanced, esthetic smile.
