Beautiful work by a personable and professional staff! I recommend them to everyone!
For the first time in my life, I have complete confidence in my dental team. After several years of looking for a good dentist, finding them has been fantastic.
At Atlanta Dental Spa it is our objective to preserve your natural teeth if at all possible. Sometimes, though, we must resort to dentures. Usually it's in the instance of:
1) Having a pre-existing denture that you want replaced with cosmetic dentures or high-end porcelain or acrylic teeth (to the Atlanta Dental Spa standard).
2) There is the presence of such massive decay and advanced periodontal disease present. The most predictable and effective option might be a beautiful denture.
Dentures held in the mouth by nothing other than passive retention. This means that impressions are taken of the mouth (without teeth) and dentures are fabricated precisely to the underlying gum.
Typically, people who have a denture in this situation have to rely on denture adhesives or pastes to keep the denture in place throughout the day.
This is especially the case on lower dentures because the ridge of bone and gum on the lower is not as substantial as that on the top, so the denture "flops" around more. The upper denture is usually a little more stable in this situation because it utilizes the surface area of your palate to help keep things in place.
A denture that is essentially attached to either two dental implants or two mini-implants. You can see how this option helps to stabilize and retain the denture in the mouth. The denture will actually "click" into the two positions.
Old dentures (or your existing denture) can usually be retro-fit to accommodate the denture. As far as dentures go, this is the second best denture option for long term. In the opinion of Atlanta Dental Spa, almost all lower dentures should be an over denture because otherwise they just "flop" around, making it difficult to speak and talk. This option still makes the denture removable each night.
Implant Dentures (hybrid bridge):
This option is not really a denture – it's more like a fixed bridge. Typically 4 or 6 dental implants are placed on the upper and lower arch. The denture hybrid (implant dentures) is actually fixed to the implants in the mouth.
This is the most stable option and it is NOT removed each night. Some other names for this type of denture are "All on 4" or "Teeth in an Hour."
The advantage to implant supported dentures is that they are the most stable and most aesthetic option; they are the best cosmetic dentures in Atlanta, however, due to their complex nature and the amount of dental implants necessary to support them, they are also the most expensive. See the example of the implant dentures (hybrid denture bridge) below: If you need dentures in Atlanta, then contact our cosmetic dentists today!
