Dentures are the standard in replacing a full arch or full set of missing teeth. Dentures provide a smile restoration option that can improve both the aesthetic and functional aspects of the smile.
Cosmetic dentures are made from high-quality state of the art dental materials that look and function like natural teeth. We custom design partial and full dentures to complement your smile. Dentures can be custom shaped, colored and fit your specifications for a more comfortable and aesthetic result. Our cosmetic dentures provide a snug and comfortable fit that reduces slippage. For patients looking for a more permanent solution for replacing a full arch of teeth, Dr. Roham Rafat offers full-service implant secured dentures from the comfort of our Baltimore, MD dentist office.
“When my 80-year old Uncle’s mini implants failed due to bone loss, we came to Cosmetic & Advanced Dentistry. Dr. Rafat patiently worked with my uncle, a stroke victim who was very frustrated with his dentures. My Uncle was ready to give up, but Dr. Rafat would not. Full-size implants were used to secure his lower denture- he is very happy with the fit and function of his dentures. I couldn’t be more pleased with the work of Dr. Rafat and highly recommend him, especially when hope is lost.” – Joyce L., Baltimore, Maryland

Dr. Rafat has advanced training in implant dentistry and offers in-house implant services to our patients in the Baltimore, MD area. Dr. Rafat surgically places titanium posts into your jaw bone. Once the implants fully heal and successfully fuse with the jaw, the denture can be secured to the posts for better bite and more confident smile.
For patients with an ill-fit denture or partial denture, their existing restoration can often be used as their final restoration after implants are placed. For many patients, the implants can be placed and the denture secured in just one visit to our Baltimore, MD dentist office. Implant-supported dentures can also do away with the need for your upper denture to totally cover the roof of your mouth – eliminating gagging and improving your ability to taste food.
We offer metal-free flexible partial dentures for a natural, no-metal-clasps appearance. Many people consider them the most aesthetic, life-like partial dentures available today. Partial dentures may also be secured using dental implants.
If a patient requires multiple tooth extractions and a denture replacement Dr. Lazer or Dr. Rafat may recommend “Immediate Dentures”. Our team approach to dental restorations allows our dentists to perform extractions and fit the patient with a denture in just one visit to our dentist office. Once teeth are removed from the jaw the bone in the gums begins to shrink. Once the bone shrinkage has lessened, after 6 months to one year, a new denture that fits exactly is made. Further bone loss can be deterred by placing dental implants.
