If you’re living without teeth or need to have your teeth removed, Atlanta West Dentistry in Marietta, GA is here to help with our beautiful dentures!Dr. Travis Watson on Dentures Read Transcript
Dentures are still a very common restoration or appliance therapy that we do for our patients. The truth is that 25% of adult Georgians have dentures basically or a in some way, whether it be their upper or their lower arch, which is sometimes a high number that people don't think of. So there's a lot of denture wearers out there and so many patients, at the beginning, start to think, “Well, gosh, a denture. That sounds like an awful way to replace your natural teeth,” and we find that we can usually help patients in that adjustment process and get them to wear they can wear their dentures comfortably. Sometimes, I can be a bit of a compromise. But from the standpoint of having something that is retentive and stays in with confidence, we feel like we've been able to succeed with hundreds of patients over the years. What I always tell patients is that upper dentures typically are very easily to get accustomed to whereas lower dentures sometimes can be a little bit more of a challenge to get accustomed to.
So if we're gonna do anything, we're gonna try to maintain something on the lower, whether it be a few teeth and sometimes, we get into the discussion of placing a couple implants. It can actually be fairly simple to have a lower that snaps into place because the alternative for a lower is just getting used to a denture that moves around just a little bit and it's more about muscle memory than anything else. But it's been fun for us to be able to offer implants for patients who have had, say, a lower denture for 5, 10, 15 years and to be able to basically allow them to start snapping their denture in. That's a pretty cool thing for us to do.

Developing Your New Smile With The Right Dentures
Atlanta West Dentistry in Matietta, GA offers a variety of dentures to best suit your individual needs. These include:
- Full Removable
We can create a set of traditional, custom-designed replacement teeth that will look and feel great in your mouth.If you have lost most of your teeth due to disease, decay, or age, or will need to have many of them removed, this may be the option for you.
Partial dentures work much like traditional dentures except that they replace only a portion of your natural teeth. If the majority of your natural teeth are healthy but you have a gap you would like to fill, partial dentures may be right for you.As with traditional dentures, partials are removable for easy cleaning and maintenance and may require an adhesive to stay in place.
- Implant-Retained And Implant-Support
Implant-retained and implant-supported dentures are dentures that are secured into your mouth using dental implants. Implants can restore almost 100 percent of your natural chewing power.Implant-retained dentures are dentures that are secured to your jawbone using dental implants and ball attachments. Implant-supported dentures are similar but are secured using a bar attachment system.Both options are great for lending extra support and stability to your denture. We can even do these with special LOCATOR implants.
