Upper Snap-In Teeth

This patient came to Dr. Gray with an upper denture that they could not tolerate. It gagged them and moved around very easily when speaking and chewing. By placing implants in key positions of the upper jaw, Dr. Gray was able to make new teeth that snapped into place. Additionally, the roof of the mouth is open for a more natural feel, taste, and speech. By allowing the prosthetic to be removable, it can be cleaned easily and is able to provide additional lip support which reduces the sunken look that often follows when all the upper teeth are lost.

Snap-In Teeth

This patient had several dentures before arriving at our office. After a little investigating, it became evident that he did not want to use denture paste or pads anymore and had abundant bone. In order to address the concerns, we placed four implants in the top and bottom jaw and then used these for extra retention on his dentures. Also, the metal backing on the lower denture made it stronger and thinner.

Premium Partials

Cost often deters patients from undergoing extensive esthetic treatment. In this case, we were able to restore all the missing teeth with two crowns and removable partials. Since a comprehensive treatment plan was developed, the crowns were designed to allow for a more effective partial.
