Full Upper or Lower Jaw Replacement
Dr. Cardenas can replace a full jaw with a dental implant restoration in the form of a fixed bridge or denture that results in a permanent, stable and highly esthetic solution.
Dental implants, fused to the jawbone, keep the bone healthy and your teeth securely in place. Once implants have been placed in your jaw, Dr. Cardenas will restore them with fixed bridgework or over dentures. A fixed bridge is permanently secured to the dental implants, while removable overdentures are held in place by a bar and clip, or by one of many other attachments currently available.
