Implants & Dentures: A Winning Combo
Experience a Rejuvenated Smile At Last
Dentures are popular cosmetic dentistry restorations that are available at Dr. Rykard's office for patients who are missing one or more teeth. Dentures are available in both full dentures (which cover the entire upper or lower arch) and partial dentures, which snap into place to provide a replacement tooth in the area requiring attention. Both can be created for patients of Dr. Rykard who are not viable candidates for dental implants or dental bridges.
When a patient loses their natural teeth, they will also lose approximately 70-80% of their chewing ability with traditional dentures. Traditional dentures have a tendency to not stay in place or fit as tight over time, and they can even cause irritation and sores on the gums. The ideal solution to prevent these problems from happening is to provide implant-supported dentures.
"A tooth from my old denture came out and needed to be re-glued because I looked like a snaggletooth, and needed help quickly. My spouse found the office listed on an internet page and called. They made room for me without an appointment. Dr. Kevin Rykard fixed my problem with a small charge. He got me out of the office with time to spare; I was able to attend my granddaughter's volleyball game."

"Dr. Rykard repaired a messed up procedure by another dentist and did root canals, crowns and dentures for me. I am so happy, I can eat again without pain and can smile again without being embarrassed. I would highly recommend Dr. Rykard, he is the best dentist I have ever been to."

Eat Whatever You Want Again
Implant-supported dentures are a great way to combine dentures with an affordable alternative to give them the support and strength that they need to be effective for talking, eating, and chewing. Several implants are integrated into the patient's bone and linked with the denture to provide the stability it needs to stay in place for the most comfortable fit. Patients who have implant-supported dentures enjoy the benefits of affordable dental restorations with stronger teeth and bones.
Protect Your Oral Health and Prevent Bone Loss
Another benefit of dental implants is that they can prevent bone from deteriorating, which is a common negative effect for patients who go years without their natural teeth. Implants help stimulate the bone density in the jaw while supporting the dental implant. The deterioration of bone is what can cause many patients to suffer with ill-fitting dentures over time, as the dentures can irritate the gums and bone as it reabsorbs. Dr. Rykard can provide a variety of solutions for patients who are struggling with the loss of their natural teeth. For dentures that are strong, stable, and beautiful, call Dr. Rykard today to schedule a consultation and examination to find out how he can provide better-fitting, more natural-looking dentures for your smile in progress!
