Dentures is one of those options to replace the missing teeth for people with dentures that don't have teeth at all. When we have patient with no teeth left in their mouth, we do the oral exam and we try to asses if they are a good candidate for dentures or not. If they are good candidate, like they have good ridge and good support for the denture, we advise them to have denture. But many cases, the denture by itself, like if there's not enough ridge or not enough support, it will not be the right solution. However, still the denture is a tool to help patient restore the missing teeth. If we incorporate that with like, a few implant to support the denture and keep the denture in place so this way, they can continue their life.
Today’s denture have little in common with early replacement teeth, though. In fact, dentures have seen many improvements in recent years. For instance, Dr. Hikmat Hannawi or other Attleboro, MA dentists can attach a denture to dental implants for increased stability.
Dr. Hikmat Hannawi has been practicing dentistry in Attleboro, MA for 17 years. He began his dental career in Syria then later attended Boston University School of Dental Medicine as part of its Advanced Standing Program.

Dental Implant Denture Stay Securely in Place
One of the biggest benefits of implant-retained denture and the implant-supported denture is their secure fit. Because your dentures don’t just rest on your gums but are attached to implants embedded in your jaw, they’ll stay put. This is why they’re especially popular for the lower jaw, where your mouth’s natural suction doesn’t work as well in keeping traditional dentures in place.
Other advantages of dental implant denture include:
- They’re more convenient. You won’t need messy adhesives. And depending on which types of denture you choose, you can brush and floss them just like your natural teeth.
- They’re better for your dental health. Because dental implants stimulate your jaw much like natural tooth roots, you’re less likely to experience bone loss that negatively impacts your dental health and gives your face a “caved in” look.
