Dr. Jason Ford:
So with patients that have a lot of missing teeth, obviously function is broken down, so with dentures, what you can do is you can get people an entire set of teeth so that they're able to function again, and then also they're able to smile again, which is usually what they really want. They want to be able to smile again, that's kind of the rewarding part of it.
Implant-supported dentures are really great because it eliminates the movement of the denture. So with the implants anchored in the jaw and the denture kind of attaching to the implant, it prevents the movement, and you actually get a lot more force with function again.

Find the Best Dentures for Your Needs
It’s a given that you would like to have a lifelike smile. Modern dentures can give you that natural-looking smile whether you are missing several teeth, a row of teeth, or all your teeth. But is a new smile all that you want? Your answer can help you determine which kind of dentures are right for you:
- Partial Dentures – For anyone missing several teeth, we can design a partial denture to attach to your healthy teeth and fill the gaps in your smile.
- Conventional Full Dentures – Full dentures replace a complete row of teeth. In some cases, you may need to remove the last few teeth you have to get the best fit.
- Implant-Retained Dentures – A few dental implants in your jaw can stop your dentures from sliding around and allow you to eat practically anything you want. These also can be removed for easy cleaning.
- Hybrid Dentures – These types of dentures also are secured with implants. They are fixed in place, making them extremely stable, although they can be removed by one of our dentists if needed. They do not cover the top of your mouth, so you can fully taste your food.
Feel Good About Your Smile
Many people don’t appreciate how important teeth are until they are gone. Eating is much more difficult without teeth. Missing teeth also makes many people too uncomfortable to smile. Without teeth, your appearance can change, too. As your facial muscles sag and you lose bone in your jaw, you can develop wrinkles that cause you to look older than you are.
