The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that approximately 178 million American adults are missing at least one tooth. More than 35 million Americans are completely edentulous, or missing all of their teeth. Today’s advanced restorative dentistry solutions make it possible for these men and women to seek permanent tooth replacement with dental implants. At the Marietta, GA dental practice of Dr. Ruth Clemans, edentulous patients are invited to explore their restorative options, including dental implants and implant-retained dentures.
Advantages of Implant-Retained Dentures
While traditional dentures are sufficient for many edentulous men and women, this removable prosthesis simply doesn’t offer the stability and natural appearance that many patients desire. Regular dentures can slip and cause discomfort, particularly if they do not fit the jaw and gums properly. This is where dental implants make such a dramatic difference.
A dental implant is a small metal post that is surgically placed within the bone of the jaw. It serves as a sturdy anchor for a prosthetic tooth or denture, holding the patient’s new teeth firmly and comfortably in place. A full arch of beautiful, natural-looking teeth is attached to the implants, allowing the patient to eat, speak, and smile with renewed confidence. Implant-retained dentures are a superior solution for many patients; an assessment in our office will help to determine your candidacy for the procedure. Dr. Clemans is always happy to discuss her patients’ restorative dentistry options in detail, developing a treatment plan that is customized to fulfill each individual’s unique needs.
