Implant Dentures in Charlotte, NC

Securing a denture with dental implants can offer a stable, permanent tooth replacement option. Dental implants also offer some key benefits for your long term dental health, including stabilizing and minimizing the loss of bone in the jaw. An implant secured denture can provide the most natural function and appearance while boosting your smile confidence.

Implant dentures will restore normal chewing ability, enabling you to once again enjoy your favorite foods and a varied diet. There is no need for the use of adhesives to secure your denture and you can care for your new smile in much the same way you would your natural teeth.

Routine dental care is also important for the best outcome, during which Dr. Moore can monitor the condition of your implants, gums and oral health.

Dentures & Partials What to Expect

The placement of a full or partial denture begins with a consultation and evaluation of your needs and goals. Dr. Moore will meet with you to perform a thorough dental exam and listen to your aesthetic goals for your smile.

If dental implants are being placed, we will work with you to coordinate the surgical phase of treatment where the titanium post is implanted into the jaw. If tooth extractions are needed, Dr. Moore may perform the procedure here in our office or coordinate care with an oral surgeon. In many cases, a temporary denture may be placed to restore function.

Dental impressions will be taken and digital diagnostics used to plan a custom denture that will fit comfortably, complement your smile and provide the most natural function possible. Our goal is to help you stabilize your dental health and to improve your quality of life with a beautiful new smile.

Once the final denture is complete, you will come in for placement or attachment to dental implants that have healed in the jaw. Dr. Moore will work with you to make any necessary adjustments for fit, comfort, and function.

We will go over the care of your new denture if it is removable and discuss how to keep an implant denture healthy with daily oral hygiene.

Dentures & Partials FAQs

How long do you have to wait to get dentures after teeth are pulled?

Dentists usually recommend waiting until your tooth sockets heal over before providing you with permanent dentures. The general consensus is about 6 to 8 weeks. Our dentist may provide you with temporary dentures so that you do not have to go without teeth for a while.

Do dentures make you look different?

Yes, in a positive way! Dentures help lift your face and prevent facial sagging that occurs when you are missing teeth. For even more permanent support and to reduce premature facial sagging, consider implant-supported dentures.

Can you tell someone is wearing dentures?

Today’s modern dentures are indistinguishable from natural teeth. If done correctly, your new modern dentures will fit seamlessly with your smile and not stick-out like a sore thumb. We custom-fabricate our dentures to your specifications.
