The most common form of tooth restoration for those who are missing all their teeth are traditional removable dentures. Over 90 percent of those who are completely without teeth choose dentures for their aesthetics, affordability and function. Dentures are a removable prosthesis of natural-looking teeth that are held in place through adhesives or suction. Dr. Hassan Moeti in Stone Mountain, GA, can help customize a set of dentures specifically for your mouth so they fit comfortably and function optimally.
When preparing you for dentures, Dr. Moeti will perform a detailed examination of your health and jaw structure to create a customized prosthesis that will fit comfortably on your gums. We can create both partial and full dentures depending on your needs. Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing multiple teeth, but have several healthy teeth remaining that the denture will sit between. Full dentures are able to replace a full mouth of missing or failing teeth. Both options will allow you to chew, bite and smile with more confidence.
While dentures in Stone Mountain, GA, are common for tooth replacement, they are not the healthiest or most stable options. Over time, your jaw bone will begin to deteriorate due to lack of bone stimulation and irritation from the denture appliance. As bone deteriorates, dentures typically become more unstable and feel loose or uncomfortable while being worn. To solve this problem, Dr. Moeti offers dental implants, which are inserted into your jaw and connected to your denture to hold securely hold the dentures in place. Dr. Moeti has extensive experience in dental implant placement using BioHorizons dental implants, and also offers implant supported dentures utilizing two to eight full-sized implants that improve stability, comfort and bite strength. An additional benefit of both implant options is the stimulation of the jaw bone to prevent deterioration and a changing facial shape.
