If you lost teeth to trauma or decay, you likely not only feel self-conscious when you smile, you probably also have difficulty chewing, both of which negatively impact your quality of life. Dentures and partial dentures offer a comfortable, esthetic solution that gives you your smile back. However, today we find most patients prefer dental implant-supported restorations.

Implant retained over-dentures are another option to consider if you’re ready to replace missing teeth. These dentures offer enhanced stability and a more precise fit, providing the esthetics you want while also giving you even better function. With this treatment, implants with attachment pieces are placed and the dentures are then snapped in. In many cases, different inserts can be used to modify how tightly your dentures are held in place.

Yes, you must remove your dentures every night before you go to sleep.

You’ll find it’s actually very easy to clean around the implants. We’ll provide cleaning instructions so you know exactly what to do.

We’ll sit down with you to go over fees for your individual case, but you can expect this treatment option to cost less than fixed bridgework.


Dr. Nevins did a thorough review of my medical history and then gave me an exam. We were able to define a first step that made sense. He also put to rest some of the fears that had been caused by the first provider.
