Your teeth are a valuable asset. They help you chew, enunciate, and maintain proper balance between your jaws. If you are missing teeth, it is very important to replace them to avoid compromising these vital functions. Drs. Ross and Shah provide dentures through his Atlanta practice, using the best materials and the latest techniques to provide you with comfort, function, and a natural appearance.

Dentures Help Restore Your Quality of Life
Today's dentures consist of durable, lifelike replacement teeth attached to a comfortable, gum-colored plastic base. The base of the denture is custom-designed to fit snugly onto your dental arch, and is secured using special dental adhesive. Dentures can either rest on the gums, secured with a mild adhesive, or connect to dental implants.
Dr. Ross or Dr. Shah will carefully measure the dimensions of a smile before designing a dental prosthetic. Next, we send the specifications to Georgia Dental Laboratory, considered one of the best laboratories in the country. There, dentures are expertly crafted from durable dental porcelain designed to mimic natural tooth color and translucency.
What are Partial Dentures?
If you have lost several teeth, but still have some healthy teeth intact, partial dentures can complete your smile. Also known as dental bridges, partial dentures are designed to balance your bite, restore chewing ability, and look completely natural. With a partial denture, we can replace lost teeth with a prosthetic that is compatible with your natural teeth. Like full dentures, partials are crafted at Georgia Dental Laboratory according to your smile's specifications. They can be anchored either by adjacent restorations or a dental implant.
Implant-Supported Dentures for Improved Stability
Dental implants are a landmark restorative dentistry treatment that provides superior support for full and partial dentures. These small titanium posts are surgically placed in the jaw bone, replacing tooth roots. As the jaw heals following surgery, the bone will fuse to the implant, providing a level of support and function equal to that of natural tooth roots. Dental implants eliminate the risk of shifting that can occur with traditional dentures. These prosthetic tooth roots can also help you to preserve valuable bone mass in your jaw. Dr. Ross or Dr. Shah will determine whether you are a candidate for implant-supported dentures.
