Dental Implants & Dentures in Odenton
When you’re missing teeth, you often find yourself missing out on so much that life has to offer: smiling with confidence, talking with ease, and eating your favorite foods, just to name a few things. At True Dental, our team offers start-to-finish dental implant services as well as full and partial dentures that fit comfortably and look great. This tried-and-true solution to missing teeth can help you get back to living a full life.
The Dental Implant Process
Dental implants are a popular method for tooth replacement among patients and dentists alike. A dental implant is a small biocompatible post that we surgically put into your jawbone in place of a missing tooth. The implant fuses with your bone and mimics a natural tooth’s root to create a stable foundation for a tooth restoration on top. Depending on your needs, we can either attach a dental crown, bridge, or denture over your implant(s).
A New Level of Comfort
Today’s dentures are more comfortable than ever before thanks to improvements in materials and the manufacturing process. We’re now able to take better impressions of your mouth, which produces better-fitting dentures. The creation and fitting process for a set of full dentures takes approximately four appointments, but we think you’ll see, once your new dentures are ready and fitted, that it was all worth it in the end.
To improve comfort even further, we’re also able to stabilize dentures even further using dental implants. You’ll start by having implants strategically placed along your jaw. Then, our team will add holes into your existing denture that match the placement of the implants, or we’ll create a new denture for you with these holes. Your denture snaps into place on top of ball joints using a locator abutment on the implant, so you don’t need to mess with adhesives anymore to keep your denture secure. The locator abutment makes attaching and removing a denture from implants easier than ever before. It also increases retention and can self-correct denture alignment. Want to learn more?

For people missing most or all teeth in an arch, we often recommend a full denture, which replaces all teeth. With the upper arch, the false teeth are attached to a full plate that matches the color of the gums, while on the lower arch, they’re attached to a U-shaped appliance that sits on the gums. Full dentures fit well and give you the ability to eat all your favorite foods with ease once again.
If you’re missing a few teeth along an arch, but still have some healthy teeth remaining, a partial denture may be a better option for you. This option fits much like a full denture in that it’s attached to a plastic, gum-colored base that sits on a metal framework. Partial dentures can be made for the top or bottom arch.
