Revive Your Smile with Implant-Supported Dentures
Widespread tooth loss can impact your quality of life in many ways, limiting food choices and affecting your appearance and social life. Traditional, removable dentures are a well-known option, but implant-supported dentures are considered a vastly superior solution for many patients. Dr. Judith Mamah in Hackensack, NJ, places dental implants and provides patients with beautiful, long-lasting restorations, all under one roof. At Designing Smiles, we offer advanced restorative dentistry techniques and procedures to increase patient comfort, convenience, and satisfaction. For patients seeking implant-supported denture options. We also offer the advanced Teeth-in-a-Day treatment solution for immediate placement of an implant-retained restoration.
A Superior Choice
Traditional dentures rest upon the gum line, held in place with suction and adhesive creams. These restorations are naturally less stable than implant-supported dentures, which are securely attached to metal posts that fuse with the jawbone. Common complaints with removable denture appliances include fit issues, slippage and wobbling during meals and conversation.
Implant-supported dentures offer a long-term solution with optimal fit, comfort and aesthetics. Surgically placed in the jawbone, dental implants fuse to the bone and provide a function similar to natural tooth roots. Your implant-supported prosthesis will remain firmly in place whether you enjoy a thick steak or chewy treat. Dental implants also provide oral health benefits, stimulating the bone to prevent tissue loss, which can change the size and shape of the jaw.
A highly trained, experienced implant dentist, Dr. Mamah offers efficient, innovative techniques for dental implants placement and restoration. With traditional dental implant approaches, dentures can be supported by eight or more implant posts. However, Dr. Mamah can often provide a solution that supports a full arch of teeth with just four, artfully-placed implants. In this procedure, as few as four posts are implanted at a strategic angle to take advantage of the thickest bone in the jaw. This procedure is ideal for many patients who have been told they cannot take advantage of dental implants without a pre-requisite bone graft procedure. Even if you have experienced bone loss, you may be a good candidate for Dr. Mamah’s technique, and can forego bone grafting.
Treatment at Designing Smiles
At your initial consultation, Dr. Mamah will provide a thorough exam, discuss your health history and lifestyle, and offer personalized treatment recommendations. Using advanced cone beam imaging, Dr. Mamah can assess your bone health. Depending on your current oral health and your future goals, she can help you decide between more traditional approaches and alternatives that use fewer dental implants. Once you have decided on the best procedure, she can use the highly detailed scans of your jaw to plan a highly precise, accurate surgery.

Implants placement is an outpatient procedure occurring in our office. You can expect to remain comfortable with our safe and gentle sedation options. A temporary will be worn throughout the healing and osseointegration process, when your implants gradually become fused with the bone. With our Teeth-in-a-Day plan, you can receive custom temporary restoration attached to your implants on the same day of surgery. In three to six months, you will return to receive your beautiful, permanent teeth.
