Here at the office of Dr. Derrick L. Williamson, the number one Wheaton prosthodontist
, one of the most popular services that we have to offer our patients are our implant supported dentures. If you are someone who uses dentures already, you may have noticed that your lower dentures in particular have a tendency to slip and slide, especially while you eat and chew. If you are looking for a solution to these daily inconveniences, or if you are someone who is ready to try dentures for the first time, then our dental implant supported dentures is definitely an option that you should consider. Implanted supported dentures are most often recommended if you have no teeth in the jaw, but still have a sufficient amount of bone in your jaw to support dental implants, which in turn provide the proper amount of support for your dentures.

As previously mentioned, dentures tend to be least secure in the lower jaw, and so dental implant supported dentures are mostly used for the lower jaw, but it is possible for our Wheaton prosthodontist
to provide you with implant supported dentures on the upper and lower jaws if needed. Just like with regular dentures, you should remove your implant supported dentures daily in order to properly clean and maintain them, so it is important to consider the effort you will need to put into denture care ahead of time. In order to get implant supported dentures, the first step is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Williamson so we can evaluate the current state of your teeth and determine how implant supported dentures can work for you.
If you would like to learn more about any of the services provided by our Wheaton prosthodontist, we encourage you to visit Dr. Williamson’s main website, where we have provided plenty of additional information about our practice. If you have any questions or concerns that our staff can help you with, we hope you will not hesitate to contact us. Our Wheaton prosthodontist
and the rest of our staff look forward to working with you here soon.
