Manchester Dental shines with outstanding, warm, genuine care and personalized attention. This high level of service is essential, especially when partnering with patients from across Georgia who have dentures or will need to replace their missing or failing teeth soon. These close relationships support the proactive care that both prevents loose dentures and also provides a fast and effective “fix” for these and other potential problems with prosthetic teeth.
Dr. Abel Aguilar and his approach to designing dentures promotes a precision fit from the beginning of the process. When dentures perfectly conform to the mouth’s contours, patients express lasting satisfaction with their new teeth. They do not experience many of the common complaints associated with conventional dentures. Complaints like irritation, sores, and embarrassing slip-ups during meals and conversations often result from improperly fitting dental appliances. Our dentures are designed well and precisely, to begin with, which helps to avoid reliance on products like denture adhesive to help stabilize the prosthetic.
This is an excellent question because it underscores the importance of ongoing maintenance and follow-up care. When you first receive your dentures, Dr. Aguilar will advise on your routine and future care needs. During follow-up visits, our dentist will assess the condition of your dental work and remaining teeth. Services such as relining or rebasing the denture may be recommended as needed. These services help to restore the fit of the denture. They are generally required with time due to the natural shrinkage of the supportive tissues in the jaw. When these tissues shrink or resorb, the denture will not conform as well and tends to slip around. These and other adjustments can bring back your happy, confident smile and help you regain comfortable, effortless chewing of your favorite (even crunchy) foods.
Dr. Aguilar also offers dental implants. We may be able to “retrofit” existing dentures with implants. When these artificial tooth roots are positioned and secured in the jawbone, they help to stabilize the denture. So, it will not go anywhere when you laugh, speak, eat, or otherwise use your teeth.
Aside from retrofitting existing dentures, new dentures-wearers or those who need or desire a new set may be good candidates for mini implant-supported dentures. These implants are generally narrower than “standard” implants. They can be precisely inserted without invasive surgical techniques or cutting. Additionally, this immediate process allows Dr. Aguilar to complete the procedure without waiting for the gums to heal.
Usually, six implants are positioned in the jawbone, with the dentures snapping onto the implants. These characteristics offer greater stability for denture wearers, whether new or experienced. Plus, services like relining are avoided since the denture is connected to the bone by way of the implant. The bone gets the stimulation it needs from the attached prosthetic teeth and, in turn, remains dense and strong. A good fit, comfort, and healthy function are supported for life as long as recommended oral and denture care is maintained.
