If you are missing a full arch of teeth, your dentist will most likely recommend dentures. While dentures can effectively replace your missing teeth, they may slip around in your mouth while in use. Dr. Petkevis provides an extensive menu of tooth replacement options in our Chester Springs, PA dentist office. Learn how he can help you address your denture slippage by utilizing implant-secured dentures.
Implant-Secured Dentures in Chester Springs, PA
Even the best pair of dentures will slip around in your smile unless you are using some form of denture adhesive. In fact, denture slippage is one of the biggest complaints we hear about from our denture-wearing patients. To combat denture slippage, Dr. Petkevis offers implant-secured dentures. Implant-secured dentures utilize strategically placed dental implants to anchor your denture in place while in use.
Implant-secured dentures offer many benefits for lasting oral health and daily quality of life. Patients experiencing denture slippage may feel unconfident in their restoration’s overall functionality. With implant-secured dentures, patients can enjoy fewer dietary restrictions thanks to the added support of dental implants. While dental implants require a surgical procedure as well as an extended healing time in order for the posts of the implant to fuse together with your jawbone, most patients find the long-term benefits of this treatment option greatly outweigh the short-term inconveniences.
During your restorative dentistry consultation, Dr. Petkevis will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. You must be healthy enough for surgery and have the adequate bone structure to support a dental implant. Your concerns are important to us, and our entire team will work closely with you to make your experience a successful result.
Patient Review of Dental Distinction
“I moved to the area three years ago and one of my biggest challenges was finding a new dentist. I did a lot of research and selected Dr. Petkevis. It was a great choice! Everyone in the office is extremely nice and professional. Dr. Petkevis, his dental assistants, and hygienists have all been very patient and understanding of my fears and anxieties. I highly recommend this practice.” – Rebecca C.
