Wearing dentures is supposed to improve quality of life, but if your dentures slip or wobble, feel uncomfortable, or irritate your mouth, you’re probably frustrated. What can you do to solve these issues, so you can get back to life, without worrying about your dentures?

At Yuma Smiles in Yuma, AZ, our dentists permanently stabilize dentures with dental implants. We offer the All-on-Four procedure, which allows patients to snap a denture onto four strategically placed implant posts. Call us today at 928-344-1060 to reserve your dental implant consultation.

No More Embarrassing Moments

You’re eating dinner with the family, and your dentures slip. You think no one noticed, but your grandchild says, “Grandpa, your teeth fell out!”

These moments can make you feel embarrassed, aged, and upset.

Because implant dentures are anchored to four posts embedded into the jawbone, attached dentures cannot slip. They will never dislodge while you’re eating or speaking.

Better Health with Implant Dentures

The human jawbone requires phosphorus and calcium for strength. With the loss of teeth, we also lose the ability to sense vibrations that alert the brain to deliver nutrients to the jaw. Therefore, after tooth loss, the jawbone does not receive adequate phosphorus and calcium, and as a result, the bone weakens, becomes brittle, and shrinks. With jawbone deterioration, the distance between a person’s chin and ear shortens, creating an aged appearance.

Implants placed into the jawbone re-establish the ability for our bodies to sense vibrations in the jaw when we chew. Nutrients are delivered, the bone remains healthy, and the patient doesn’t suffer the physical and emotional consequences of jawbone degeneration.

Improved Self-Confidence

Wearing implant dentures makes a person look good, feel good, and allows the chewing of crunchy foods that contribute to a healthy diet. Imagine knowing that your smile looks natural. Imagine never enduring slipping or irritating dentures again. You’ll look and feel younger – and in turn, your self-confidence will get a permanent boost!

Easy Care and Maintenance

Traditional dentures require periodic relining to maintain a good fit. Over time, friction between dentures and the human jaw cause gums and bone to become smooth. The smoother the surface of the gums, the easier it is for a denture to slip, even with adhesive applied. When the underlining of a denture does not match the topography of the gums, dentures are more likely to slip and become uncomfortable. Periodically relining a conventional denture ensures the best stability and fit.

With implant dentures, friction does not occur, because implant posts carry the full weight of the dentures. Therefore, implant dentures never need relining.

Furthermore, you’ll not need to use denture adhesive at all. If you wear upper implant dentures, they won’t rely on natural suction for stability.

Patients who maintain good oral health can enjoy stable implants for the rest of their life!

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
