Secure Your Denture with Dental Implants

If you’ve experienced significant tooth loss in one or both arches, you’re not alone. In fact, an estimated 35 million Americans don’t have any remaining natural teeth. Previously, the only option to replace your missing teeth involved a traditional denture. Although they’ve undergone several enhancements to improve their fit and function, they will always have their limitations. You’re not out of options. You can enjoy a close replica of your real teeth using implant-supported dentures in Marietta. At Leading Edge Dentistry, we’ll stabilize your smile using the security of dental implants.

How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?

A traditional full denture is made from a digital impression of your mouth to create a custom-fit base that’s held to your gum tissue using suction or an adhesive. While this offers a convenient solution, it won’t feel natural, and you’ll need to have it replaced every few years.

As an alternative, we can anchor your denture to your jawbone using 4 to 10 dental implants. This does more than just stabilize your denture. It also replaces the roots of your teeth, allowing you to enjoy several advantages, like a nearly perfect success rate.

Am I A Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?

If you’ve experienced significant tooth loss and a traditional denture didn’t give you the results you wanted, you might be a candidate for an implant-retained denture. We’ll need to perform a thorough consultation to review your oral, medical, and lifestyle history. We’ll also review a CT scan to ensure your jawbone can support the dental implants. In some cases, we might recommend additional procedures before your placement surgery, like periodontal therapy or bone grafting. This ensures your new smile has the healthy foundation it needs to thrive.

The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure

Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants will require a multi-step treatment process that will take several months; however, it’s time well-spent because your new smile can last for decades.

After you’ve healed from any previous treatments, you’re scheduled for your placement surgery. Sedation or anesthesia is used to ensure your comfort as titanium implant posts are surgically placed into your jawbone. You’ll spend the next several weeks healing as your jawbone fuses to the posts through a process called osseointegration.

Once your jaw has healed, special fixtures are placed on each post and your custom-made denture is attached. You can chew, speak, and smile confidently knowing it looks and feels natural.

Benefits of Combining Dentures & Dental Implants

Using dental implants to secure your denture offers several benefits, including:

  • Over a 95% success rate
  • Looks and feels natural
  • Regain 70% of your biting force
  • Preserves your jawbone’s density
  • Supports your facial tissues

I have been going to Leading Edge Dentistry probably for over 10+ years. I love my dental hygienist. She makes the cleaning process, as comfortable as possible and caters the treatment plan for sensitive roots and teeth. I have my cleaning every 6 months. I've had some old fillings replaced by Dr. Patel. The process was quick, comfortable, and painless. She even did my mom's dental implants, which look very natural. She has her old smile back. Can't thank Dr. Patel and her staff enough for helping clients get their smile and confidence back, or easing any anxieties around dental work!

I started with Leading Edge Dentistry last year after 6 years without going to the dentist and a couple of decades of bad dentist experiences. Leading Edge team and Dr. Patel is nice, always smiling, always takes time to explain, and does great work. Her team is always supportive and very knowledgeable and experienced. I highly recommend Dr. Patel and Leading Edge! They have been great to get my teeth back in shape and not dread the dentist.

best of the best. Super friendly and caring staff, and amazing doctor / nurses / hygienists. I used to dread going to the dentist but it doesn't even phase me anymore since going to Leading Edge. Oh and the longest I've EVER waited was maybe 15 minutes and they apologized for running late. Normally it's less than 5 minutes. I recommend this place to everyone!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This office is amazing! When I arrive for my hygiene visits, the front staff is always very friendly! I don’t have to wait long for the hygienist to bring me back and throughout the visit she explains each step. The doctor is very thorough in reviewing the recommended treatment. When I had to have treatment completed- the doctor explained each step of the procedure. The numbing injection was painless and they made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. My whole family (including my 2 kids) does not mind visiting the dentist anymore. Dr. Howard and his team are wonderful!
