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.
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.
