Implant-Supported Dentures in Baltimore, MD

When a patient is missing a full arch of teeth, prosthetic dentures can be created using impressions taken of your remaining soft tissues. Dentures consist of an acrylic resin and metal base that will rest on your gums. The prosthetic teeth that we attach to the base consist of various types of resin or porcelain. Dr. Doroshekno is a skilled prosthodontist and will ensure that your dentures closely match your former smile to ensure a natural-looking result.

The most common complaint amongst denture-wearers is denture slippage. Denture slippage occurs when your dentures shift around in your mouth while in use. This can cause denture wearers to lose confidence in their dental restoration and avoid eating or speaking in public. An alternative to traditional dentures is implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures utilize the support of strategically placed dental implants to anchor a denture in place. No longer a removable device, the dental implants will be surgically inserted beneath your own soft tissues and allowed to fuse together with your jawbone. After the implants have healed, they will be a strong foundation for your restored set of teeth.

Implant-supported dentures have an extremely high patient satisfaction rating because of the dramatic difference they can have on a patient’s quality of life. Often, patients are able to eat and speak normally again as soon as the denture is secured. You will need as few as two and up to eight implants placed to hold a denture in place.

“During my 1st visit, the staff very friendly. I met with Dr. Lazer and others. It’s a nice office… made a very favorable first impression. Subsequent visit… still the same stellar service. Several visits later and Dr. Doroshenko and his assistant Melissa are very responsive whenever I call. I have every confidence that when this extensive process is completed, I will have a beautiful smile.” – Floritta P.
