Grand River Dental

Our father-daughter team of dentists, Dr. Leo Malin and Dr. Rachel Malin, can provide you with stable, full-arch replacement teeth that will stay in place and provide significantly increased chewing power.

What are implant-support dentures?

Implant-supported, removable snap-in dentures are connected to dental implants by special snap-in attachments and can easily be removed for cleaning. These newer, more advanced dentures are stable and do not need adhesives to keep them in place. They do not use a false palate that covers the roof of your mouth and inhibits your sense of taste.

Hands Holding a Dental Implant

Experienced, highly skilled implant dentist, Dr. Leo Malin

Dr. Malin started placing implants in 1993 and worked diligently from the beginning to become a professional in all aspects of implant treatment. Today, he is a world-renowned and highly respected implant dentist who has pioneered technical advancements in implant dentistry that have led to several U.S. patents.

As an accomplished educator of other dentists in implant procedures, Dr. Malin has been featured as a continuing education leader in Dentistry Today magazine. He is both the director and teacher of the implant training courses at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. He delivers continuing education seminars on implant procedures at numerous other venues in the United States and abroad.

Dr. Malin provides custom, implant-supported tooth replacement to any patient, no matter how complex the case, in the comfort of our office. He will lay out a detailed, tailor-made treatment plan for you and provide you with a new set of teeth that are durable, beautiful, and function like your natural teeth.

Am I a candidate?

You may be a candidate for implant-support dentures if:

  • You have significant tooth loss
  • You are tired of having dentures that slip, slide, and are uncomfortable
  • You want a natural-looking smile
  • You want the ability to chew properly and eat a wide range of foods

During your initial consultation, Dr. Malin will evaluate your mouth, any current dentures or replacement teeth, and help you determine if implant-supported dentures are the best option for you.

How implant-supported, snap-in dentures work

Your treatment will be meticulously planned and prepared, so your new dentures will come together naturally and result in comfortable bite alignment and the ability to chew comfortably. Dr. Malin begins with digital X-rays, 3D CT scans, and advanced computerized jaw and bite analysis to plan the precise position of each implant placed to support your new dentures. He will then place five or six implants along your upper arch and four or five implants along your lower arch. The tops of your implants and the underside of your new implant-supported dentures will be fitted with specialized attachments that allow the dentures to snap firmly into place on the implants. Once completed, you can enjoy the benefits of these advanced dentures, which include:

  • Your dentures will not move around, slip, or click while you eat or talk
  • Your chewing power will increase to 60 percent of that of natural teeth
  • You will still be able to remove your new dentures for cleaning, just like traditional dentures
  • Your new snap-in dentures will be lightweight, not large and bulky, which makes them natural-looking and comfortable to wear
  • Your upper denture will have no false palate that inhibits your sense of taste and impedes your sensitivity to heat and cold, so you can fully enjoy the foods you love

Using implants to stabilize your current dentures

If you are currently wearing dentures and would like them to have enhanced stability and increased chewing power, Dr. Malin can stabilize your existing denture using dental implants and transform it to become an implant-supported, removable snap-in denture.

Dentures that are stabilized by implants do not move around and are much more comfortable to wear. Your chewing power will also be significantly improved, allowing you to eat a wider range of foods than you could with traditional dentures with no implant support.

How denture stabilization works

Dr. Malin will place several implants in strategic positions to support your dentures. The tops of the implants and the inside of your dentures will be fitted with attachments that allow your dentures to snap onto the implants and be held securely in place. You will experience the benefits of the added support while wearing your dentures, and you will still be able to remove them easily for cleaning.

Full smile restoration

As an alternative to snap-in dentures, Dr. Malin can provide you with a full-arch set of replacement teeth that are fixed permanently in your mouth. This option provides even greater chewing power and offers an array of other advantages.

For most patients, Dr. Malin can perform the necessary procedure without the need for bone grafting—even if you have experienced severe bone loss and were told that you were not a candidate for implants.
