Dental Implants Offer A solution To Missing Teeth
Dental implants can boost your self-confidence and provide permanent results.
What Is A Dental Implant?
Dr. Peter Pang may recommend dental implants over other tooth replacement procedures because dental implants have such a high success rate and minimal complications.
Dental implants are a permanent replacement for lost teeth. During the dental implant procedure, a titanium post is placed in the jaw that is designed to mimic the function of your natural tooth. After a period of healing time, a crown is attached to the post. Together, the implant and the crown mimic the look and function of a natural tooth allowing you to eat and speak normally again.

Replacing Traditional Dentures with Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures are designed with a set of dental implants that serve as a foundation for dentures. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia or sedation for a pain-free visit. Dr. Pang offers two types of implant supported dentures: Bar-retained dentures and ball-retained dentures.
Both types of dentures offer a long-term solution for those who are suffering from tooth loss and are tired of dealing with uncomfortable, ill-fitting dentures. The implant supported denture ensures your denture will stay in place permanently so you no longer need to worry about eating or speaking again!
Ball-Retained Implant Supported Dentures
Ball-retained implant supported dentures are designed with a ball-and-socket mechanism so that the dentures fit securely on the gums. Patients will no longer worry about shifting or moving dentures as they eat or speak. With ball retained dentures, patients can live their lives with confidence.
Bar-Retained Implant Supported Dentures
Metal bars are connected to the dental implant posts for more comfort and stability. A set of dentures can be placed on top of the metal bars and secured with clasps to ensure a tight fit. This type of denture can be removed at night for cleaning.
