While traditional dentures can serve as a viable solution for replacing missing teeth, they aren’t without their drawbacks. Since dentures sit on top of the gums, the jaw bone underneath the missing tooth starts to deteriorate from lack of stimulation from a tooth root. Dental implants solve this problem with installation directly into the jawbone. The base of the implant is fused to the jawbone, replacing the missing tooth root and recreating the structure of the tooth from the root to the crown. Dr. Hassan Moeti combines dentures with dental implants so patients can enjoy the benefits of both procedures. Implant supported dentures in Stone Mountain, GA, is a viable option for patients with several missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
Patients who currently wear dentures but want more stability and comfort can now get implant supported dentures in Stone Mountain, GA. With this procedure, dental implants are fused to the jawbone and the top is attached to the base of a denture. This creates a very secure and stable fit for the dentures and provides several benefits dentures alone do not. Dr. Moeti has extensive experience placing and restoring implant supported dentures and will customize a solution for your needs.
Dr. Moeti performs this procedure under anesthesia right in the office. He will place the titanium posts of the implant in several locations around the jaw and your existing dentures or a new denture is fitted over the implants. After the implant treatment areas are fully healed, the denture might be modified to snap on securely over the abutments. This makes it easy to remove the dentures for cleaning but still provides a secure and stable fit.
