Atlanta Dentist Specializing in Dentures

Brett Langston, DMD, and the Dental Implants and Aesthetic Specialists team are skilled in the art of fitting and making dentures. All of our dentures are constructed by a licensed prosthodontist, and you can see your dentures being made and adjusted throughout the process. Custom dentures can restore a beautiful smile in both form and function so you can feel confident again.



Overdentures are a type of removable denture supported by and attached to dental implants or natural teeth that have been specially prepared. Unlike traditional dentures, which rest solely on the gums, overdentures have attachments that provide additional stability and support. They are designed to enhance comfort, functionality, and the overall stability of the denture. Here are the key aspects of overdentures:

Implant-Supported Overdentures

These overdentures are supported by dental implants placed in the jawbone. Typically, two or more implants are used for stabilization. The overdenture snaps onto attachments on the implants, providing a secure fit that helps improve chewing efficiency and comfort. Implant-supported overdentures are especially beneficial for lower dentures, which traditionally are less stable than upper dentures.

Tooth-Supported Overdentures

One or more of the patient’s natural teeth are kept as a foundation for the overdenture. The natural teeth are usually reduced in size and covered with a protective cap or coping that helps anchor the overdenture. This approach provides stability to the denture, helps preserve the jawbone, and maintains the health of the oral tissues.


  • Improved Stability and Comfort: Overdentures are more stable than traditional dentures, reducing the risk of slipping or movement and enhancing the wearer’s ability to chew and speak confidently.
  • Preservation of Jawbone: Using implants or natural teeth to support overdentures helps to maintain jawbone density, which can deteriorate when teeth are missing.
  • Enhanced Oral Health: Overdentures can improve oral hygiene compared to traditional dentures because they are easier to clean and maintain.
  • Psychological Benefits: Overdentures’ added stability and natural feel can significantly improve the wearer’s quality of life and self-esteem.
  • Maintenance: Like all dental prostheses, overdentures require regular maintenance, including daily cleaning and periodic adjustments. Dental check-ups are essential to ensure the health of the supporting teeth or implants and the proper fit of the overdenture.
  • Customization: Overdentures are custom-made for each patient to ensure a comfortable fit and natural appearance. The dentist or prosthodontist will take impressions of the mouth and design the overdenture to suit the individual’s needs.

Who is a Candidate for Dentures?

We would first like to say that there is no age requirement for dentures. If you have lost your teeth due to an illness, injury, or prolonged decay, you may want to consider getting dentures. Dentures can come in many forms, but we will ensure that we find the best fit for you.

What Dentures are Right For Me?

From the initial consultation to the first denture fitting or a later denture relining or repair, the skilled team in our office utilizes the highest quality materials to deliver the best overall experience.

We Offer the Following Denture Options

  • Metal framework partial dentures
  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Implant-supported dentures
  • Conventional upper and lower dentures

To make sure we get the perfect fit, our in-house prosthodontist will take impressions to make a model of your jaw and mouth.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can be made with a metal or acrylic framework. Unlike complete dentures, partials are meant to replace a few missing teeth, not all of your natural teeth. The frame will provide sturdy support for chewing, particularly when you’re missing molars.

Partial dentures with acrylic or metal frames will securely anchor to your existing teeth and stay in place without the use of dental adhesives.

Conventional Dentures

We also offer conventional dentures, which consist of creating a mold of your jaw and mouth and then making custom dentures for you. These can be created for both your lower and upper mouth and will replace all or most of your natural teeth, unlike partials. These can also be removed at any time.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are best described as a combination of both dentures and dental implants. An oral surgeon will attach four to six dental implants into the jawbone, usually with titanium screws, into the jawbone. Then a patient has to wait between three to six months for the screws to fuse with the jawbone tissue. When this process is finished, a set of special dentures are attached to them. Unlike other dentures, these cannot be taken out without a dentist’s assistance.

Whatever your needs may be, we are equipped to offer you the best denture care in Atlanta.

We Also Offer Relining and Repair Services

Dental Implants and Aesthetic Specialists have a licensed prosthodontist who can repair full or partial custom dentures within a few days, depending on the repairs needed. Denture repairs are done to help you leave feeling comfortable.

New dentures will typically fit securely in your mouth since they are designed specifically to fit your gums. Relining is needed every one to two years due to your gum tissue changing over time. This can cause your dentures to become loose and make them shift uncomfortably in your mouth. Having your dentures relined will help keep them tight and functional. When they are relined, our in-house prosthodontist fills the denture with a putty-like material. This putty is used to create an accurate impression of your mouth. The new denture is then sent to a lab and adjusted to the new shape of your gum tissue. By relining your dentures, you can ensure that you stay snug and secure for the rest of your life.
