Implant-supported Dentures Offer Unmatched Stability

Do you wear dentures, or do you need them? Dr. Hancock is excited to help you learn about Implant-Supported Dentures, the modern upgrade to traditional dentures. They don’t slip or rub; they restore your ability to chew just about any food, and just as important, they are much better for your oral health.

Implants can add a great amount of stability and chewing power for denture wearers.

Dr. Hancock provides high-quality implant-supported dentures. He places two to four implants per arch in your jaw bone during a surgical procedure, and the denture then snaps onto the implants using a ball and socket mechanism. This way, the dentures are very secure and non-moving, but you can remove them for cleaning. It’s possible that the upper plate may be eliminated as well, further enhancing your comfort level.

As with every dental procedure done by Dr. Hancock, he makes sure that you have optimum functionality with your implant-support dentures. He will customize every aspect of your dentures so they are comfortable and work they way they should.

Education and Advanced Training

Dr. Hancock is a graduate of the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry, where he also completed a General Practice Residency program with extensive focus in comprehensive dentistry and dental implants. Dr. Hancock has placed hundreds of dental implants for his patients. This extensive experience has enabled him to competently help many patients achieve better oral health as well as provide an aesthetically enhanced smile.

Denture Stabilization

There’s good news if you already have dentures and would like for them to be more stable. Dr. Hancock can take your existing dentures and retrofit them so they will fit snugly and securely to implants placed in your jawbone. No more loose dentures, and they will additionally prevent bone loss.

Dr. Hancock can sometimes place as few as two implants in an arch to stabilize the denture. This will eliminate the common occurrence of your denture slipping and rubbing while you eat or talk while also adding strength. He can also place more than two implants, which will add even more stability if necessary. Having non-moving, fully functional and comfortable dentures also means you no longer have to use any gooey adhesives to keep your denture stable.

This type of implant-supported bridge is very similar to having natural teeth again. It is solid, strong and stable, and although it is not removable by you, Dr. Hancock can remove it if necessary.

It is the best, top-of-the-line solution to replace all missing teeth in an arch. You will have full chewing force again so you can eat anything you would naturally. The aesthetics are excellent as well, making your smile beautiful and greatly enhancing your quality of life.
