Reclaim Your Smile with Dr. Sam Latif

Complete Your Smile With Dentures

Do you suffer from severe tooth loss? Implant-supported dentures are the perfect treatment option for patients who have multiple missing teeth. At Keep Smiling Columbus, Dr. Sam Latif is able to restore your smile with custom dentures so you can start enjoying your favorite foods again and live a life with more confidence.

Our Columbus, OH, dentist offers various denture options for patients depending on their unique oral health needs. Learn how implant-supported dentures are the perfect cost-effective alternative to traditional implants.

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are used as an alternative to dental implants to replace your entire arch and improve your quality of life. Unlike traditional dentures, these implant-supported prostheses are secured directly into your jaw without the need of an adhesive. This provides more of a durable foundation for your fixture with maximum stability and comfort.

Dr. Latif can place a full set of dentures directly into your jawbone with as little as four dental implants, giving you a permanent smile that you can count on. While traditional dentures might cause long-term issues such as bone deterioration, the titanium alloy that implant-supported fixtures require will fuse with your jaw to promote better health.

Implant-Supported Dentures Vs. Traditional Dentures

Cost Comparison

Since implant-supported dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth, most patients prefer this treatment option to individual dental implants. With a proper hygiene regimen, these types of dentures can last 25 years or more before needing to be replaced. Overall, they require less maintenance to ensure their longevity and are more cost-effective.

Function and Feel

Implant-supported dentures feel and function more like your natural teeth compared to traditional fixtures. Since your implants are placed directly into your jawbone, your dentures will be more secured and you won’t run the risk of having them slip out of place. This means that you’ll be able to eat your favorite foods again and not have to worry about damaging your fixtures.

Bone Stimulation

Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are attached directly to the jawbone, allowing for greater functionality. Since your jaw will receive the necessary stimulation it needs to maintain its density, you won’t have to worry about issues such as bone deterioration that are common with patients who use regular dentures.

Receiving Implant-Supported Dentures

During your initial consultation with Dr. Latif, the health of your jaw and gums will be evaluated to determine if you’re a good candidate for implant-supported dentures. Afterwards, you’ll return to our Columbus office for the procedure of placing four to six implants into your jawbone.

Over the course of three to six months, your implants will fuse naturally with your jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. During this recovery period, our staff will place a temporary denture to protect the area as it heals.

At your final appointment, Dr. Latif will place your custom fit dentures and secure them permanently so you don’t have to worry about the piece moving out of place.

Afterwards, you’ll have a new complete smile that’s ready for any social situation.
