With expert care from our team in Palm Desert, California, you can get the option of implant-supported dentures to restore your smile to its former glory! They provide a stronger structure that won’t cause bone deterioration and protect the underlying bone as well as surrounding gum tissues. They also prevent soreness and sores from forming.

To qualify for implant-supported dentures, you will need healthy gums and supporting bone material where a dental implant would be placed. After the titanium screw is placed for the dental implant in your jaw bone, the bone will fuse with it in a natural process called osseointegration. After that, either a ball-retained or bar-retained denture will be placed. Each one is attached to the dental implants, creating a secure hold that will stay in place.
