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.

At Designing Smiles in Hackensack, NJ, Dr. Judith Mamah places dental implants and beautiful, long-lasting dentures all under one roof.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

Restoring your smile with dentures that are secured to dental implants can be a life-changing decision. Here's why more patients are choosing implant dentistry over traditional methods of tooth replacement:

A Long-Lasting, More Secure Option

Implant-supported dentures offer a long-term and stable tooth replacement solution. They provide a more optimal fit, along with improved comfort and aesthetics so you can feel more confident about the look of your smile.

Prevent Jawbone Atrophy and Gum Recession

Dental implants also provide oral health benefits, stimulating the bone to prevent tissue loss, which can change the size and shape of the jaw. In addition, well-fitting dentures prevent changes to the gums and dental arch.

Immediate Placement of a Temporary Restoration

We also offer the advanced Teeth-in-a-Day treatment solution for the immediate placement of an implant-retained restoration. This means you have a replacement for your natural teeth throughout the healing process.

Why Are These Restorations So Incredibly Stable?

I'm so happy that I found Designing Smiles! I have been traumatized by dentists in the past, and have had a difficult time finding a dentist that listens, takes their time,  explains the process and gives options. I am more than happy with Dr Mamah.  I'm waiting for my implant to heal now, but I know I have the support of Dr Mamah and her team during this process!

Designing Smiles really provides painless comfortable affordable dentistry! I was dreading an extraction of a particularly troublesome painful tooth last week but Dr. Mamah and her staff calmed me and the extraction was accomplished in a few minutes. I had no residual pain after the extraction not even mild discomfort. She was able to do a bone graft and implant at the same time as the extraction. Ten days later the area is healing well and causing no discomfort.

Patient Testimonial

One of our patients describes the wonderful experience she had while receiving implant-supported dentures from Dr. Mamah.

Removable vs. Implant-Supported Dentures

Removable Dentures

Traditional dentures rest upon the gum line, held in place with suction and adhesive creams. These restorations are less stable than implant-supported dentures. Common complaints with removable dentures include fit issues, slippage, and wobbling. Patients that are unhappy with removable dentures can seek a more secure tooth replacement option.

All-on-4 dental implants

Implant-Supported Dentures

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. At our Hackensack, NJ, office, Dr. Mamah can provide lifelike, durable implant-supported dentures that rely on as few as four implants.

Dental Implant Options

Traditional Care with Eight Implants

A highly trained, experienced implant dentist, Dr. Mamah offers efficient, innovative techniques for dental implant placement and restoration. With traditional dental implant approaches, dentures can be supported by eight or more posts. Depending on your current oral health and your future goals, she can help you decide between a traditional full-arch restoration technique or alternatives that use fewer dental implants.

Alternative Option with Four Implants

Another solution supports a full arch of teeth with just four strategically placed implants. In this procedure, the posterior posts are implanted at a 45-degree angle to take advantage of the thickest bone in the jaw. This procedure is ideal for those who have been told they cannot get implants without a prerequisite bone graft. Even if you have experienced bone loss and wish to forego bone grafting, you may be a good candidate for this technique.

Treatment Timeline

Implant placement is an outpatient dental procedure that takes place at our Hackensack, NJ, dental office

Consultation

At your initial consultation, Dr. Mamah will provide a thorough exam, discuss your health history and lifestyle, and offer personalized dental treatment recommendations.

Treatment Planning

Using advanced cone beam imaging, Dr. Mamah can assess your bone health. Once you have decided on the best procedure, she can use the highly detailed scans of your jaw to create a custom, precise surgical plan.

Sedation

You can expect to remain comfortable with our safe and gentle sedation options, including local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, and oral conscious sedation.

Implant Placement

Next, Dr. Mamah will place each implant into the jawbone during a painless surgical procedure.

Placement of the Temporary Restoration

A temporary will be worn throughout the healing period. With our Teeth-in-a-Day plan, you can receive a custom temporary dental restoration attached to your implants on the same day of surgery.

Osseointegration

During the osseointegration process, your implants gradually become fused with the bone. This healing process takes about three to six months.

Placement of Your Custom Dentures

After healing is complete, you will return to our office to receive your beautiful, permanent teeth.
