Dentures

If you are missing several consecutive teeth, or a full arch of teeth, you are probably seeking a long-term tooth replacement solution.

Dr. Gerald Lande offers implant-supported dentures that provide a wealth of advantages over traditional dentures.

Advanced Dentures Offer Unparalleled Stability

Dependability

Dentures attached to dental implants are extremely strong and durable, and they will never slip out of place. Implant dentures are a long-term solution designed for comfort, reliability, and peace of mind.

Jawbone Strength

Implant dentures prevent the jawbone atrophy that occurs in the absence of tooth roots. Besides keeping your bite strong, this also helps maintain your facial structure and keeps you from developing a sunken, aged look.

Improved Quality of Life

Missing teeth make it difficult to eat or speak normally. Implants keep dentures from slipping out of place so you can enjoy life without worrying about your teeth.

Boosted Confidence

Dentures enhance your appearance by replacing missing teeth and filling in the gaps. After receiving dentures from our Carmel dentist, you will no longer need to hide your mouth when you smile or worry about your prosthetic teeth falling out during a conversation.

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

​Implant-supported dentures are full or partial dentures that stay attached to dental implants. Because they replace both teeth and tooth roots, implant-supported dentures are a reliable, long-term solution for your oral health needs.

Implant-supported dentures consist of three primary parts: the implant posts, the abutment pieces, and the dentures themselves. Here at Lande Cosmetic, Implant and Family Dentistry in Carmel, IN, we can perform every stage of the dental implant process.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dentures? To Qualify, You Must...

Have Missing Teeth

If you are missing most or all of your natural teeth, dentures are an excellent option for restoring your smile. Whether you need partial dentures or full dentures, our Carmel office can help.

Desire Lifelike Restorations

Implant-supported dentures are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. If you want a lifelike restoration, these dentures are a perfect option for your needs.

Have Sufficient Jawbone Density

After tooth loss, the jawbone begins to atrophy. If you've lost too much bone density in your jaw, your bone may not be strong enough to receive implants. Fortunately, Dr. Lande can perform a bone grafting procedure to restore your candidacy.

Be in Good Oral Health

Any underlying oral health problems must first be treated before the implant procedure can begin. Your gums must be in good shape to ensure the success of dental treatment.

Receiving Implant-Supported Dentures What to Expect during Treatment

Consultation

At your consultation, our dentist will determine if dentures are right for you. He will review your medical history and perform x-rays in order to design your dental treatment plan.

Anesthesia

On the day of your implant surgery, our dentist will numb your gums and jawbone using local anesthesia. After you are comfortable and at ease, he will create small incisions in your gums.

Implant Placement

Next, Dr. Lande will insert small, biocompatible implant posts into your jawbone.

Healing Period

After the implants are in place, it takes about three to six months for the posts to fuse to the jawbone.

Abutments

After your healing is complete, you will return to our Carmel office to have small connector pieces called abutments placed on the implants. The gums will be carefully sutured around the implants to leave the abutments exposed above the gum line.

Denture Placement

After a second healing period of about two weeks, our dentist will be able to attach your natural-looking dentures to the abutments.

The All-on-4 Method Simpler. Quicker. Easier.

If you're missing a full arch of teeth, the traditional implant timeline may seem like it will take too long. You need new teeth, and you need them as soon as possible! Fortunately, Dr. Lande is experienced in the innovative All-on-4® dental implants approach. With this treatment method, our dentist can attach a full denture to only four implants, and he can do it in the same appointment as your implant surgery.

On top of that, the All-on-4 method requires a smaller amount of healthy bone, so you may not need preparatory bone grafting in order to qualify.

All-on-4 implants
By placing implants at a strategic angle, Dr. Lande can attach a full denture to only four posts.
"He is the gentlest, most clinically skilled, and professionally competent dentist that my family has ever discovered, which is why he has been our only family dentist for over 25 years. He has a very comfortable office, keeps up to date with the latest advances in cosmetic and general dental care, has a wonderful and welcoming office staff, and is extremely sensitive and understanding when confronted with the "fear and dread of going to see a dentist" that many of us have. I can not recommend him highly enough, and would grant a 6 Star Rating if it were allowed. If you choose to put your trust in Dr. Lande, you will never regret it!!" Judy Davis

What to Expect after Treatment

After receiving your dentures at our Carmel practice, there will probably be a short adjustment period until you get used to your new restoration. After all, it is like having brand new teeth in your mouth. It may take some time for you to feel comfortable eating and speaking, but many patients get the hang of it with practice.

Dr. Lande recommends starting slow and eating soft foods before moving on to more solid foods when you are comfortable. After the adjustment period is over, you'll enjoy all the benefits that implant-supported dentures have to offer. It is essential to maintain your oral health by regularly brushing, flossing, and attending routine dental checkups.
