Implant Supported Dentures

Traditional dentures often cause people discomfort due to movement and slippage along the gums. In addition, traditional dentures typically require the inconvenience of messy pastes or adhesives. Implant supported dentures allow our patients at Serenity Smile Designs to replace their traditional dentures with a stronger and more reliable missing teeth replacement option. The implant denture technique used by Dr. Erik Mendelsohn to restore the appearance and function of your teeth with natural-looking results.

What Are Implant Supported Dentures?        

Implant supported dentures can replace multiple sets of missing teeth on the upper and/or lower arches. Instead of utilizing putties and adhesives to keep the dentures in place, an implant supported denture uses a dental implant to secure the denture and significantly reduce the potential for movement or slippage along the gums. This technique anchors your denture to the jawbone, providing it with greater stability.

Dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots. The implants will be strategically placed in the area of missing teeth, where they should fuse to the jawbone over time, ultimately becoming a permanent part of your mouth. Each set of dentures is firmly affixed to the implants for reduced movement along the gums and a more natural fit, without the need for dental adhesives.

What Can Implant Supported Dentures Do For My Smile?

The dental implants used to anchor the denture offer superior stability compared to traditional dentures. This added stability also allows you to enjoy foods that are often prohibited or problematic with traditional dentures. Since only four dental implants are required to replace an entire set of teeth, implant supported dentures can be a more cost-effective form of tooth replacement. Implant supported dentures are also ideal for patients interested in dental implants but lack the bone volume necessary for a full set. As an added benefit, implant supported denture procedures can typically be performed in a single day, giving you a natural-looking, beautiful smile almost instantly.

Melanoma detected at Egg Harbor Township Cosmetic Dentist Office- Serenity Smile Designs.

Although the lesion appeared tiny. It was in fact stage 4 melanoma.

Serenity Smile Designs our Egg Harbor Township Dental Office is a complete health dental office and we are concerned with far more that just your teeth. During our routine head and neck exam Dr. Erik noticed that Lenny had a small lesion on his head that according to him had been there forever. Dr. Erik was concerned and asked him to go home and look at some of his older photos to see if that was the case. Although skeptical he did in fact look and find that the lesion was not always there. As it turns out, he had stage 4 melanoma which required immediate surgery. 

 

 

 

 

 

The lesion was so small it looked as if it had always been there.

Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer. Often the first sign of melanoma is a change in the size, shape, color, or feel of a mole. Most melanomas have a black or black-blue area. Melanoma may also appear as a new mole. It may be black, abnormal, or “ugly looking.” Early detection is crucial with this type of cancer.

Orthodontic Options

Many common complaints about an ugly smile center on the fact that the teeth aren’t straight. As an adult, braces typically become a less popular option than they were when you were in 7th grade. However, there is an “invisible” alternative to metal braces called Invisalign. Here at Serenity Smile Designs, Dr. Erik Mendelsohn and Dr. Alexa Previti can get you started with Invisalign, which is a series of removable custom-molded trays that slowly move teeth back into alignment. Invisalign works just the same as regular braces, but allows you to move your teeth in a subtle manner and unnoticeable. Let us help you take the first step towards a healthier and more beautiful smile.
