While our Vinings dental office team promotes the complete health of our patients’ mouths, tooth loss is an unavoidable occurrence for some people. We totally understand how tooth loss can affect the way you eat and speak. For many people, tooth loss can cause a significant impact on the way they live their lives, causing them to retreat socially and lose self-esteem and self-confidence.
We don't want you to miss out on anything that life has to offer. Fortunately, Dr. Patel has a great, affordable way to replace those missing teeth and restore your ability to eat and speak again.
Types of Dentures
A complete denture is recommended when all the teeth in your arch are missing. Complete dentures can be made for the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Dr. Patel and his talented team can help determine whether you are a good candidate for a complete denture.
A partial denture might be right for you if you have some healthy teeth remaining and only need to replace a few teeth. They are made to match the color of your teeth and your gums so that they blend in well and look natural.
We use the most advanced technology and materials to ensure the perfect fit and shade of your dentures. Our goal is to restore the form, function, and aesthetics of your teeth as discreetly as possible.
The Modern Denture Difference
What comes to mind when you think of dentures? For many patients, it's the block-like false teeth that they remember their grandparents wearing. Today's denture technology has significantly improved, meaning that modern dentures look much more natural than they used to. For instance, each tooth in your denture will be crafted and placed individually to allow for the subtle variations that occur in nature. This gives your dentures a more realistic and life-like quality. Most people can't tell the difference between modern dentures and natural teeth!
Increase Your Denture Stability
One common complaint is that dentures seem to shift and slip while worn. This can be very irritating and embarrassing. Regular dentures rest on the gums and tend to be less stable on the lower jaw. Many people find that they adjust to their dentures well, but some people do prefer a bit more of a guarantee that their dentures will stay in place.
In this case, we can fabricate implant-supported dentures to ensure that your dentures don’t slip around while eating or talking. It is amazing what four implants can do for denture stability! Schedule a consultation today with Dr. Patel so he can qualify you for your set of implant-supported dentures.
