At Grand Traverse Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Centers, we understand the importance of replacing missing teeth. In the case of an entire row of missing teeth or dental arch, many people opt for dentures. And while dentures are a quick, easy and economical restoration treatment, they can allow your jawbone to deteriorate and need to be periodically adjusted and replaced as the shape of your mouth changes. Our oral surgeons can provide you with two options for replacing a missing upper or lower arch: dental implants and implant-supported dentures. Both of these treatments can help you to eat and speak normally again and restore the volume of your face and your appearance.
Dental implants are easy to brush and floss, and they look and feel natural. They can improve your appearance and allow you to eat, speak and smile with confidence. Individual implants require more surgery and a longer healing period than other restorations do, but overall, they are a sound investment in your appearance and oral health.
Implant-supported dentures combine the best of implants and conventional dentures. This treatment costs less than a full complete set of dental implants but still offers the stability that implants provide.
