How Dental Implants Can Solve Your Denture Woes

Showing Dental Model Alpharetta, GA

Dentures have been around for decades. They are the go-to solution when patients have a full arch of missing teeth. While traditional dentures have certainly come a long way in terms of fit and comfort, many patients still experience a host of setbacks that can impact their health and quality of life. Traditional dentures refer to dentures that rest against the gum line and are held in place by special adhesive cream. Fortunately, implant dentistry has given denture wearers a new and better alternative to traditional dentures.

If you are currently suffering from ill-fitting dentures, you may want to consider a switch to implant-supported dentures. This type of denture is also call an overdenture or implant-retained denture, which means that the denture or full arch of prosthetic teeth are anchored in place by a set of implants rather than adhesive cream. In doing so, the denture is firmly fixed in place and gains unrivaled stability compared to the conventional denture model. Since stability is the root of most denture woes, implant-dentures can be a life changing solution. Patients gain replacement teeth that look, feel and function most like real teeth.

The stability of implant-supported dentures fosters the following benefits:

  • Improved Self-Esteem – the ability to speak, eat and laugh with confidence.
  • Better Long-term Health and Nutrition – no need to avoid fibrous fruits and vegetables or hard to chew proteins due to loose dentures.
  • Prevent Bone Loss – implants can stimulate the underlying jawbone, allowing the bone to retain its density and shape and help patients avoid premature aging in the lower face.
  • Easy Maintenance – implant-supported dentures can be cared for like real teeth, without the need for messy adhesive creams and special cleaning products.

I've been going to Dr. Roberts for a couple of years now (after a long period of not going to any dentist), and she has helped to bring my quickly developing periodontal disease under control. The staff is always professional and friendly there and they constantly use the most up to date technology. Great dentist! Aaron A.
Dr Roberts and her staff always go the extra mile for their clients. I can't say it's ever really fun to go to the dentist, but she's outstanding and really cares about helping you have a heathy mouth, not just pretty teeth. Jeremy R.
Dr. Sarah Roberts and her team (all of them) have given me the best experience I have had with a dental office. I have moved around a bit and out of the 4 offices I have gone to in the last 15 years, this is by far the best. I highly recommend. Ryan D.
