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
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?
5-Star Google Reviews from Our Dental Implant Patients
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.
Removable vs. Implant-Supported 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.
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.
