Implant Stabilized Dentures
Partial Vs. Full Dentures
If you are missing one or more teeth and you are looking for an affordable, natural-looking replacement option, dentures may be right for you. Partial dentures use a metal or plastic framework to attach to your remaining healthy teeth and suspend a false tooth in place. Full dentures, on the other hand, are only used if you are missing most or all of your teeth because they fit directly over your gums and require the extraction of any remaining teeth. Both full and partial dentures are efficient, economical ways to restore your smile if you are missing teeth.
Reasons for dentures:
Complete Denture – Loss of all teeth in an arch.
Partial Denture – Loss of several teeth in an arch.
Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.
What does getting dentures involve?
The process of getting dentures requires several appointments, usually over a period of several weeks. Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture. Several “try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, your dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty, however, this will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to the new dentures.
You will be given care instructions for your new dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new dentures.
Partial Dentures: A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.
Complete Denture can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed (usually takes 4 to 6 weeks). During this time, the patient will go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.
Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
What is "Denture Stabilization"?
Denture stabilization is a technique Dr. Sharara uses to secure dentures against the gum line. To stabilize the denture, Dr. Sharara places two implants that the dentures are able to attach to seamlessly. Because of the secured fit, denture stabilization results in a higher level of comfort, since the dentures are held in an optimal position.

In order to complete the procedure, Dr. Sharara will need to take a 3D x-ray and create a surgical guide to determine the optimal placement of the two implants. We are currently offering this procedure for $3,999, saving our patients over $4,500. We also offer payment plan options up to 18 months interest-free, resulting in payments as low as $225 a month.
