Avoid Denture Pitfalls with Dental Implants Gainesville, GA
Dental Implants Gainesville GA

There are patients that find traditional removable dentures to be an acceptable solution for missing teeth. However, dentures are not always easy to wear, and they can cause a host of problems if they are ill fitting or loose.

The Dental Implant Advantage

Dental implants are considered the gold standard of tooth replacement, as they involve the use of titanium posts that are implanted into the jawbone to act as a tooth root. For patients that have a few missing teeth, a crown or bridge can be placed on top of the implant for a natural and highly functional solution. However, for patients who have no teeth in the upper or lower jaw, dentures are the most economical solution.

But you do have options here. Patients may choose from either a traditional set of removable dentures or implant-supported dentures. Before you opt for the lower cost option, you’ll want to know the full advantage of choosing an implant-supported denture over a traditional set.

Can You Benefit from Implant Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures use three to five dental implants to secure the dentures in place.  With implants, you have a secure support system that acts much like your natural tooth roots.  An implant includes a titanium post that is surgically placed into your gums, which later heals and fuses to your jawbone. Your dentures are made to fit securely on top of the implants.  This allows patients to avoid many of the pitfalls that denture wearers often encounter.

The added security and stabilization for implanted-supported dentures means no more slipping and sliding issues. This allows patients the invaluable benefit of eating and speaking with confidence. With strongly anchored dentures, patients also regain the freedom of eating a varied and healthy diet. Traditional dentures often cause patients to restrict their diet to softer foods, which typically includes more carbohydrates and less fiber-dense fruits and vegetables.

How you choose to replace your missing teeth is always a personal decision. However, the advancing technology of implant dentistry has helped countless patients achieve an improved quality of life after missing teeth. Dental implants look, function and feel most like natural teeth. You should never just endure pain and discomfort while wearing dentures. At Gainesville Dental Group, we can help you find the solution you need to smile, eat and chew with confidence and comfort.

Our Patient Reviews

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

Dennis C.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

Sarah R.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Linda H.

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Bruce Y.

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
