They went above and beyond to squeeze me into their tight schedules while also accommodating to mines which is something I really appreciate. I had to get a procedure done and the idea of getting something drilled in your mouth sounds like a nightmare but the entire time the staff and Dr.Akram made it so easy and painless.

The Benefits of Treatment
If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for replacing multiple missing teeth, our periodontists may recommend implant-supported dentures. Implant-retained dentures are very similar in form to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by dental implants. Very often denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can actually retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. The dental implants, which are similar in appearance to screws, are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require 4-6 dental implants per denture. Once the implants have been placed and allowed sufficient healing time, your denture is attached on top. This provides your denture with exceptional stability. In fact, many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function more like their natural teeth.
