Implant Supported Dentures in Lexington, MA

Traditional dentures sit on top of the gums and can cause problems such as bone deterioration and clicking sounds. When you are considering dentures or dental implants to replace missing teeth, talk with Dr. David Rosen, a periodontist in Lexington, MA, about implant supported dentures. This tooth replacement option involves anchoring a set of dentures in the mouth with dental implants. They are most often recommended for the lower jaw, but in some cases can also be used in the upper jaw.

Implant supported dentures are designed to be snapped into place on top of dental implants to create a very secure fit and hold. These do not require any adhesives or pastes. Those that are removable can be taken out for regular cleaning. Dr. Rosen can also provide information about fixed implant supported dentures, which work just like your real teeth and are not removable.
