The goal of dentistry is to save natural teeth and only replace teeth when necessary. Sometimes a person must have some or all of their natural teeth replaced with dentures when they cannot be repaired.

An expertly designed set of dentures is very important. Comfort, appearance, stability, and function depend on the quality of the dentures. We provide hundreds of people with dentures that look, feel and function exceptionally well.

In recent years, advancing science with dental implants has dramatically changed the way dentists replace teeth. A dental implant is a small metallic artificial root that is gently placed in the jaw. After the implant stabilizes, the denture can be connected to the implant using various techniques. The biting pressure rests on the implants, not on the gums under the denture.

Dentures supported or stabilized by implants can feel and function almost exactly like natural teeth. Implants also slow or stop the gradual loss of bone in the jaw that occurs when losing natural teeth. Implants serve as artificial roots, the bone in the jaw remains strong, and prevents rapid shrinkage of the face due to loss of bone.

In the last few years, small implants (small diameter implants), called “mini implants,” have been developed to support dentures. These small implants are extremely economical, easy to place, very comfortable and the denture can be immediately connected to these implants. This is an excellent option if you are looking to improve your current set of dentures.

Our patients who have had implant supported dentures say they have been life changing. We have helped many patients who have had their old, poorly fitting dentures replaced with well-designed, high quality dentures.

What Our Patients Say

Beginning in 1995 Dr. Ward took over my dental care. She has proven to be as painless as I believe possible. My bridges have performed perfectly. My extractions have been very few, and my partial is working without incident. I recommend that anyone needing dental work consider using Dr. Ward.

Rudolph Hughes

Very gentle, very competent. I am very appreciative of your skill and skill of your staff. Thanks.

Shawna Silva

Since having my first traumatic experience as a 9 year old with an army dentist I was always anxious about going to the dentist; my muscles would get tense, and I would grip the arms of the dentist chair, anticipating the worst.
But what a difference Dr. Ward has made in my previously harrowing experiences with dentists. With her calm caring manner and soothing touch, I actually became more relaxed in the dentist chair. What a relief!

Then as a bonus, there are times she would softly hum a tune which even makes me more calm, like a mother soothing an anxious baby – I guess I must have been a big baby when it came to dentists, but not anymore! Thank God for Dr. Ward! And her friendly staff aren’t too bad either.

Dr. Ward, I want you to know how much I appreciate the care I have received here. I am so happy with the improvement in my gums, and it is because of your emphasis on preventive oral care. It has made a huge difference, and I thank you.

One day during my morning prayer and meditation I had to look up the word honorable. The word is rich in meaning and implies the purest, highest, noblest kind of goodness. Honorable means “lovely”, “winsome”, “gracious”, “noble” and “excellent’. Your name, Winsome, definitely describes your character and your practice. God bless and keep you!!!
