This is a case where six dental implants were placed in the upper arch and were restored with an overlay denture. Not only is this an excellent aesthetic result, but due to the strength of the implants, no palate is needed in the prosthesis. This enhances the ability to taste food more naturally. The appliance snaps into place an does not move providing great retention and security. The internal metal reinforcement of the prosthesis insures no breakage and extended longevity. As we strive to provide the best in Phoenix cosmetic and implant dentistry, it is very satisfying to provide a beautiful, secure smile in those unfortunate instances where the teeth have been lost or are not savable.
