Implant Supported Dentures in Atlanta Atlanta, GA

Dentures are a time-honored solution to the serious problem of severe tooth loss. Not only do they restore the beauty of your smile but, modern alternatives to tooth loss such as implant supported dentures can transform the quality of life for patients with missing teeth. Dentures also help restore your ability to eat and enunciate properly, which grows more difficult as more teeth are lost. Yet, if you or someone you know has worn dentures for a while, then you are probably aware that a common complaint among traditional denture wearers is the eventual loss of grip that can result in slippage and discomfort during use. You might assume this is natural. As time goes on, the appliance may wear down from everyday use and eventually need replacing. The truth, however, is that the problem doesn’t lie with the appliance, but with an underlying consequence of tooth loss that traditional dental prostheses cannot address. Atlanta Prosthodontist, Dr. David Zelby, explores how implant-supported dentures can provide a more secure fit, as well as protect your oral health from the continuing effects of tooth loss.

How to Improve on the Innovative Design of Dentures

While the materials have changed drastically with technological advancement, the concept and basic design of dentures has not changed much over the years. Custom-designed dentures to fit the curvature of your smile, help restore your natural tooth structure precisely as nature intended it to be placed for optimal function. While today’s denture adhesives are highly effective, they are perhaps the weakest link when it comes to performance. So how do you attach your dentures more securely to your gum line? By taking a page from your own body’s design and recreating the roots that your natural teeth once rested upon.  A dental implant is surgically inserted into your jawbone, with the top part exposed to serve as a connection point to your dentures. Your jawbone fuses to the implant’s titanium surface, creating a biocompatible prosthetic tooth root. Once your jawbone heals and your life-like dentures are placed on your dental implants, you will have effectively replaced your smile both above and below your gum line.

Continuing Advantages of Implant-Supported Dentures

Aside from the immediate security of a base anchored in your jawbone, dental implants help prevent ill-fitting dentures by addressing the root problem of tooth loss that can change your mouth’s landscape. When natural tooth roots are stimulated by biting and chewing, they invite nutrients to your jawbone for their support. When these roots are lost, your jawbone receives fewer nutrients, and slowly begins to deteriorate from malnutrition. As your jaw shrinks, your custom-crafted denture will no longer fit because it can’t firmly grasp your changing dental ridge. Dental implants help restore this stimulation and prevent the continuing destruction of your jawbone, making them the most complete tooth replacement option available today.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

James R.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Meghan D.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
