You’ve probably heard the horror stories: A denture wearer is at dinner with friends or family, or engaged in an important business meeting and their dentures slip. The truth is, traditional dentures are prone to slippage over time and can cause gum irritation and even infections. Embarrassing, loose or ill-fitting dentures can limit your ability to speak, eat and live your life. Removing them for cleaning is easy enough but putting them back can be problematic—adhesives can be hard to use and don’t always provide a reliable hold. But what if we told you there’s a denture option that looks natural, fits comfortably, and won’t slip? Implant supported dentures are a dependable solution that doesn’t irritate your mouth or require messy adhesives. With your new implant supported dentures, custom-fitted by the highly skilled team at our Montclair, NJ office, you’ll never fear experiencing one of those horror stories again!
The best option available for replacing one or many missing teeth, dental implants include screw-like posts that are inserted into your jawbone and act as tooth roots; your implant supported dentures are later affixed to those posts. Dr. Konstantine Trichas, Dr. Sophia Chadda and our team have an exceptional record of precise dental implant replacement, due to both extensive training and to the GuidedSMILE CHROME guided surgery technology we use. This innovative process starts with digital imaging of your mouth, from which we can show you a simulation of your finished smile and also order a custom-fabricated surgical guide to be manufactured by our lab. This will enable us to achieve quicker, more accurate results during your implant placement, yielding a more comfortable and lasting fit.
Dr. Trichas describes how implants can stabilize your dentures
The foundation of our relationship with you is to provide complete dental care in one convenient location. Should you need any additional procedures related to placement of your dental implants and implant supported dentures, we can perform them right here! In order to receive dental implants, you must have a healthy jawbone to support them. If your jawbone has deteriorated significantly, we can build it back up and make you a candidate for implants with bone grafting. Sometimes tooth extractions are necessary to make room for your dental implants. If so, we can generally complete those during the same visit to our Montclair, NJ office as your implant placement. For these and all procedures, we always take maintaining your physical and mental comfort very seriously. To alleviate any discomfort, we make IV sedation available as needed. We want you to look forward to your appointments to Downtown Dental Arts of Montclair!
