Many patients wearing dentures experience bone atrophy. Without the roots of the teeth to stimulate it, the jawbone can begin to atrophy as the body reabsorbs the bone tissue. This can affect the fit of your dentures and leave them loose and dysfunctional. Many patients resort to sticky adhesives or other inconvenient solutions. We are pleased to offer comprehensive services for our patients in need of dental restoration. For our patients that use dentures, we are happy to help you achieve a comfortable and functional solution.
One of the most popular ways to treat atrophy of the jawbone is to support the dentures with dental implants. If you have difficulties with your dentures and would like to learn more about implant-supported dentures in Charlotte, North Carolina, we invite you to contact our team at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas. We are happy to help you learn more and schedule your next appointment with our caring prosthodontists, Dr. Hoffmann!
