Zest anchor-supported dentures are a "snap" to wear!
Dr. Joseph DuRoss is pleased to offer Zest anchor-supported dentures at his practice in Long Beach, California. These are full sets of dentures that stay firmly in place not with adhesive, but with a revolutionary and user-friendly implement - the Zest anchor.
What are Zest anchor-supported dentures?
While conventional dentures are held in place by a combination of suction and adhesive paste, these restorations can now attach directly to dental implants. This support alleviates the need for messy adhesives that eventually wear away, causing slippage, shifting or loosening while eating or talking. Your dentures can still be taken out for cleaning, but with Zestanchors, removal and reattachment is an easy, hassle-free process. It requires just a snap into place.
Am I a candidate for Zest dentures?
If you're missing all of your upper and/or lower teeth, Zest can greatly enhance not just your smile, but your quality of life, both functionally and aesthetically. With the implants in place, your jawbone will have the support it had from the roots of your natural teeth. This prevents bone loss in the jaw, eliminating the need to refit dentures, as well as retaining the structure of your facial muscles. Even with conventional dentures, the lack of support can cause these muscles to sag and prematurely age you. Your face will continue to look fuller and your profile natural. Since your dentures will be firmly retained by Zest anchors, you can eat the foods you love without worrying about dislodging or harming your dentures. Best of all, knowing that your dentures are securely in place will give you the confidence to smile, talk, and eat properly.
