Our group of three dental offices in Indiana focuses on high quality removable dentures and Oral Surgery, so we make a lot of dentures! Without fail, we are often presented with difficult denture cases. Much of the time those challenging cases are older patients who have severely atrophic mandibles. After 40 years of denture wearing, they are unable or unwilling to get dental implants. Frequently these are the same patients that dislike their loose and uncomfortable lower denture and complain about it a lot!
We are seeing an increased number of younger patients, aged 25-45, who need full mouth extractions due to extensive decay, periodontal disease or both combined situations. Dr. Ara Nazanian is sharing one of his cases, and how he has transformed this patient's teeth with dentures and over-dentures.
