Loose Dentures, Receding Gums
When properly maintained, dentures work wonderfully as a replacement for missing natural teeth. Over time however, the constant pressure of the dentures’ hard acrylic base causes shrinkage of the ridge and the underlying bone. The result is that dentures eventually don’t fit and require messy, often unreliable adhesives to keep them in place. It also means that denture wearers must have their dentures relined every few years and endure regular adjustments from their dentist. (Click here to read more about common denture problems).
But there’s a better way.
An Affordable, One-Hour Procedure
Atlas Denture Comfort™ is a proven, industry standard procedure that works with either new or current denture wearers. The process is simple: Your dentist will install four to six ultra-narrow titanium Atlas™ implants. Then your denture is lined with a soft, elastic silicone base, which both grips the short protruding tips of the Atlas™ implants, and provides a soft cushion against your gums. The entire procedure lasts about an hour under local anesthesia and—unlike traditional implants—doesn’t require cutting of gum tissue or stitches. As a result, Atlas Denture Comfort costs far less than competing implant methods which often require surgery and have a far greater healing time (Click here to read about the differences). In fact, by the time you leave your dentist’s office, your dentures will fit comfortably, and you’ll find there’s little reason to take them out at all-even when sleeping!
