How To Solve Your Denture Woes Marietta, GA

How To Solve Your Denture Woes

Dentures have come a long way in recent decades. They look more natural and provide better durability than ever before. However, while newer denture models are able to reduce many common denture complaints, the best way to combat denture drawbacks is to have your dentures supported with dental implants. Dental implants involve the surgical placement of titanium posts that fuse to your jawbone to act as your artificial tooth root. Depending on your specific needs and which implant supported denture system you choose, you may only need 2-4 dental implants to secure an entire arch of missing teeth.

Here are some prevalent denture woes and how dental implants can address them:

Poor Stability and Compromised Diet

Many denture wearers have to adjust their diet in order to accommodate their traditional dentures. This often means that they avoid fiber rich fruits and vegetables due to fear that their dentures will slip out of place, which can lead to poor nutrition and threatened overall health. Dental implants can provide maximum denture stability. Implant supported dentures allow patients to enjoy dietary freedom and eat with confidence.

Premature Facial Aging

Replacing missing teeth is important for a variety of reasons. However, it is equally important to replace your missing tooth root if you want to prevent surrounding bone loss. Your jawbone needs to be stimulated (with regular chewing) in order to maintain its density and volume. A dental implant can ensure your jawbone gets the stimulation it needs so that your lower face doesn’t look aged or sunken in as the bone atrophies.

Gum Sores and Clicking

Another common drawback to traditional dentures is the potential for gum irritations and denture clicking, which are both in response to poor a denture fit. Dentures can be difficult to fit due to progressive bone loss and changes in the alveolar ridge. Implant-retained dentures can help you avoid these disruptive issues.

To learn more about how dental implants can solve your denture woes, please call Gilreath Family Dentistry. We consider it a privilege to replace your missing teeth with the best that modern dentistry has to offer.

Susan

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
