Restore Your Smile with Custom Dentures
Am I a Candidate for Dentures?
During your consultation at our Columbus, GA dental practice, Dr. Helton will determine if you are a good candidate for dentures. Our office offers traditional, implant-supported, full, and partial dentures. Partial dentures may be an ideal tooth loss remedy for individuals who are missing several consecutive teeth but still have one or more strong natural teeth remaining near the gap in their smile.
Candidates for dentures often:
- Feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smile
- Have multiple teeth that are severely decayed
- Have untreated gum disease
- Are seeking to replace missing teeth
- Are about to undergo multiple tooth extractions
Candidates for implant-supported dentures and implant-retained partial dentures must have adequate jawbone density to receive the dental implant posts. If it is found that you have insufficient jawbone mass, you may need to undergo sinus lift surgery or a bone graft to gain candidacy for dental implants.
Dr. Helton is a fantastic dentist with a caring and professional team. Best in Columbus, Ga! Kindra Hunter
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures restore oral function and self-confidence. Patients who have dentures placed at our dental office can benefit from:
- Restored bite balance
- Improved confidence when speaking and smiling
- Restored chewing function
- Fuller-looking cheeks
If you choose implant-supported dentures, they offer unique benefits beyond those afforded by traditional dentures. The titanium posts replace tooth roots and prevent jawbone atrophy. Over time, the loss of even one tooth can lead to decreased jawbone density. Dental implants ensure that your jaw remains strong and full.
How Are Dentures Made?
Our office works with a trusted laboratory to manufacture your custom denture. Dentures and partial dentures can be made from a variety of materials depending on your needs, potential allergies, and budget. Regardless of which prosthetic you choose, it will be made to exacting standards, and the results will be natural-looking.
Your denture will be custom-crafted to exacting standards, and the results will be very natural-looking.
If you are seeking implant-supported dentures, you will need to undergo dental implant placement surgery before you can be fitted with your implant-retained prosthetic. After your implant posts are placed, you will need four to six months to fully heal before your treatment plan can be completed.
