Losing most or all of your teeth is frustrating and can compromise your health. Dentures are often an affordable solution to significant tooth loss, especially implant-supported dentures.
What Is an Implant-Supported Denture?
Implant-supported dentures perform much like conventional dentures, except they are attached to your mouth with a series of dental implants. The implants are inserted directly into your jawbone so they provide a tight, secure fit.
There are several different types of implant dentures. One type is fixed, so it stays in your mouth all day and night. Others are implant-retained dentures that are removable. These dentures are attached to ball-shaped implants, or they hook to a bar that is attached to your implants. Each type of implant denture offers its own benefits. If you are looking for a solution to your tooth loss, call us for more information about implant-supported dentures in Central Brandon.
How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?
In some cases, a one-step process is available for implant-supported dentures. For many patients, though, the multi-step denture process is more suitable. This process can take five to seven months, during which time you’ll use temporary dentures.
The multi-stage denture process for affordable quality implant-supported dentures begins with a consultation with one of our experienced dentists. Our dentist will evaluate your oral health and discuss your best options. If you decide on denture implants, you’ll return to our office to have the implants inserted. After your implants have fused with your jaw, your dentist will make a small incision in your gum to uncover the implant. After that incision heals, you’re ready for your dentures.
How Much Do Implant-Supported Dentures Cost?
Many factors determine your denture costs, but there are many affordable quality implant-supported dentures available. We strive to make the cost of denture implants affordable, and we’re always happy to talk with you about insurance and financing options.
Are There Advantages to Choosing Implant-Supported Dentures?
Yes, denture implants provide a more stable, sturdy bite for those suffering from multiple tooth loss. This stability allows you to eat a wide variety of foods more naturally, helping to maintain good health overall. They also aid in curbing the bone loss that often goes along with tooth loss.
Is Caring for Implant-Supported Dentures Difficult?
No, caring for these dentures is simple. Regular and frequent brushing is required for fixed implant-connected dentures, while regular brushing and nighttime cleaning is required for removable dentures. If you have removable implant-based dentures, you should also clean around the attachments each evening.
Why Choose Implant-Supported Dentures Over Other Options?
There are many reasons some patients opt for dental implant dentures instead of conventional dentures or bridges. Implant-supported dentures are less abrasive to gum tissue than conventional dentures, and they don’t require adhesives. They preserve your facial structure, delay bone loss and allow fairly normal eating habits. If you think dentures might be right for you, call us today for a consultation.
