Fixed And Removable Teeth

Dr. HagShenas discusses why full arch dental implants help achieve a lifetime beautiful smile

WHAT ARE

Dentures And Partial Dentures?

Over 90 percent of people who are without any teeth choose traditional dentures as their restoration option of choice. Dentures are prosthetic teeth that rest on the gums, restoring a natural appearance and allowing a wider variety of food to be eaten. Dr. Amir HagShenas offers this affordable solution to tooth loss for our patients who are seeking a convenient way to replace missing teeth. Our dentures are natural-looking and beautiful, giving you a stunning smile again. We can create traditional full dentures and partial dentures based on your needs.

Full dentures are best for those who are, or will be, completely without teeth in one or both arches. They are held in place on the gums through suction, adhesives or pastes and can allow you to bite and chew some foods you could not before. Partial dentures are best for those who are missing several teeth but have multiple healthy teeth remaining. Partial dentures fit around your existing teeth and fill in the gaps, allowing you to chew, speak, and smile confidently.

Upgrade Your Dentures To Implant Supported Dentures

Dr. Amir HagShenas also offers patients the advantages of implant supported dentures . We are able to add two to four dental implants into your jaw that securely hold a retrofitted denture appliance. We can use your existing denture or make a new custom denture that will be adapted to “snap” onto the dental implants. This allows you to have improved security with no adhesives or slipping, and a drastically stronger bite. The dental implants also stimulate your jaw bone to prevent bone deterioration and the need for refitting of dentures and an altered facial appearance. During a consultation with Dr. HagShenas we can help identify which option is best for you and your goals.

Implant Supported Dentures

Implant supported dentures combine both dentures and dental implants to create a long-lasting, healthy, and stable tooth replacement solution. Dr. HagShenas will place two to four dental implants in your jaw, which will “snap” to a customized denture appliance for added security. The denture will be firmly held in place by the dental implants, preventing slipping or looseness. Implant supported dentures stimulate the jaw bone to prevent bone deterioration, meaning your appearance will not alter and the denture will not need to be adjusted and replaced. Implant supported dentures provide patients with a more natural smile, a stronger bite and secure hold when compared to traditional dentures.

Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetic appliances that mimic the look and function of natural teeth. Dr. Amir HagShenas custom fits patients for dentures so they fit the jaw comfortably. Dentures are often held in place through suction, adhesives or pastes, and need to be removed at night to sleep and clean. Over time, you will need to have your dentures adjusted to retain a proper fit because your jaw bone will begin to recede due to lack of tooth root stimulation. Dentures provide a natural appearance and allow the patient to eat a wider variety of foods than if they were without teeth.
