For the quality of life you deserve
With modern dentistry and simple dental cleaning procedures, many people can and do keep their natural teeth for a lifetime. However, one in every four adults over the age of 60 depend on full or partial dentures to keep the look and functionality of their teeth.
Philadelphia dentist Dr.Gerald Regni has more than 33 years of experience in providing high-quality full and partial dentures that will fit exactly, will be completely comfortable and without pain, and that are stable and will not move around when you eat. Our full and partial dentures are custom-made using quality materials that look natural and are durable.
We will ensure that the denture teeth are the right shape, color and size so as to look natural and the bite (the way your teeth come together and function) is made in such a way that you can eat comfortably.
Preventing pain, soreness, chewing problems and denture slippage
Inaccurately fitting dentures are the major cause of a lot of the problems with dentures and there is a technology and art, which Dr. Regni employs, to creating a perfect fit.
Another major cause of denture problems is poor alignment and poor bite (the way your teeth come together and function). Dr. Regni ensures your dentures are properly aligned, either with each other or with the remainder of your teeth.
Aligning the dentures correctly will also give you a more attractive look and prevent premature wrinkles around the lips or at the corners of the mouth.
Dr. Regni can provide you with implants to stabilize your dentures
Where appropriate and needed, Dr. Regni recommends the use of full dental implants to stabilize your dentures. This has the added benefit of deterring bone loss. Loss of bone in your mouth can cause eventual difficulties with wearing dentures, jaw problems and even change the appearance of your face, giving it a sunken look.
Dr. Regni is expert in the crafting and placing of implants, and will ensure that your implants secure your dentures to create the most natural fit and feel possible.

Mini implants consist of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and an O-ring that is incorporated into the base of your denture. This makes your denture much more stable and prevents it from slipping. The denture will not come out unless you want to remove it.
Mini implants can function as long-term supporting structures. The most effective use of this unique dental product is securing a lower denture. The procedure is simple, and Dr. Regni can place the mini implants here in our office.
