Implant Retained Dentures have a bite comparable to natural teeth. Denture adhesives, sore spots and embarrassing moments become a thing of the past. Dental implants from Changing Smiles will hold your dentures firmly in place. Dental implants are small titanium* screws that act as a substitute for the root portions of your missing teeth. As a biocompatible material, the implant will integrate with your jawbone in a process, known as osteointegration. This makes your Changing Smiles dentures a more natural part of you. With a more secure fit, greater stability than ever before you can talk, eat all your favorite foods and laugh freely without having to worry about what your dentures are going to do.
