Implant Dentistry and Dentures: The Modern Way to Replace Teeth

Did you know that 69 percent of adults have lost at least one tooth? Missing teeth can damage your self-esteem and oral health. Dental implants and custom dentures allow Dr. Reintjes to re-establish the beauty and strength of a smile by replacing missing teeth with esthetic, comfortable, and dependable prosthetics.

Trained in implant dentistry, Dr. Reintjes can place and restore implants, so our patients receive comprehensive care in one office, without having to see an oral surgeon or periodontist. Dental implants are small, titanium posts that Dr. Reintjes will surgically position in the sockets left by missing teeth. The implant posts act as artificial tooth roots, and after your prosthetic crown or denture is secured to the implant post(s), you will enjoy permanent replacement teeth that look and feel like nature intended.

For successful implant therapy, you need good oral health and sufficient bone structure to sustain the posts. To secure a denture, we may recommend implant-supported dentures. For this treatment, Dr. Reintjes will place three to four posts in your jaw, and then retrofit your existing denture with snaps or create a new denture. Because implant-supported dentures snap into place, you won’t have to worry about slippage or looseness any longer. In addition, you won’t have the hassle of denture adhesive.

We can also fit patients for precise, comfortable dentures and partials. You need a full set of dentures when you have lost all your teeth on either arch or in your whole mouth. Partial dentures fill in gaps between existing teeth. When you meet with Dr. Reintjes, he will explain the pros and cons of dental implants, implant-supported dentures, and traditional dentures.

From checkups to smile makeovers to dental implants, Dr. Reintjes delivers comprehensive dental care. Call us today to reserve your appointment. Our Fresno dental practice welcomes patients from Clovis, Coarsegold, Oakhurst, Madera, Sanger, and the surrounding areas.
