If you have difficulty with daily activities such as chewing your favorite foods or if you have trouble speaking clearly because you have many missing teeth or ill-fitting traditional dentures, then implant-supported dentures in Florida may be the answer for you. Implant supported dentures are permanent dental appliances that are securely anchored in your mouth so you can resume eating your favorite foods and speaking clearly without the worries of breaking your traditional dentures or having them slip or move around.

What Is an Implant Supported Denture?

Implant supported dentures are permanently affixed to implants that are surgically anchored in the jawbone or in your gums. Traditional dentures rest atop your gums and are secured by adhesive and have no real support so they can move around. Implant-supported dentures work well when you have good bone structure in your jaw but are missing a considerable number of your natural teeth. Implant-supported dentures are recommended for the lower jaw but can be successfully used in both upper and lower jaws as long as the bone structure is adequate.

How Do Implant Supported Dentures Work?

There are two types of implant-supported dentures commonly used: bar-retained dentures and ball-retained dentures. Both have an acrylic base that looks like your natural gums and the teeth are either porcelain or acrylic to look like your natural teeth. Bar-retained dentures support the implants with one curved metal bar. Ball-retained dentures use ball-shaped attachments on the implants, which are installed into sockets on the denture.

What Happens During an Implant Denture Procedure?

An implant procedure usually spans two dental visits and three to six months. The implants are installed under the gum line in the jawbone during the first visit. The second surgery, which will be several months later, will expose the top of the implants so that the dentures can be affixed to them. Occasionally, the entire procedure can be accomplished during one visit but that will be determined by your dentist during your initial visit.

What Will Implant-Supported Dentures Cost?

The cost of denture implants will vary by the individual and is affected by several things. The number of office visits you need, the type of attachments you select, your overall health and dental health, and any insurance benefits you have will all factor in to the final cost of your implant dentures.

What Benefits Do Implant-Supported Dentures Offer?

Those who have lost a considerable number of teeth or those who have not tolerated traditional dentures well can take advantage of substantial benefits from implant-supported dentures. They enable a return to normal dental activities for some people and they can boost self-confidence for others by providing a full set of teeth that are secure and comfortable. If you’re ready for comfortable implant dentures that don’t slip or move, call our office in Florida for more information.

How Do You Maintain Implant-Supported Dentures?

Good oral hygiene is important whether you have implant-supported dentures, your own natural teeth, or another type of denture. With implant-supported dentures, we recommend that you clean the teeth and abutments in the morning and at night so that bacteria doesn’t form and you don’t develop dental issues. Your dentures should be cleaned with a soft toothbrush and you should brush horizontally with a gentle pressure keeping the brush at an angle to the gum. If you need more intensive cleaning, you might need a proxabrush which is designed specifically to clean around the tips of the denture. A dental threader will help you floss under particularly tight areas that your proxabrush can’t reach. If you have more questions about maintaining your implant-supported dentures, call us at Florida and we’ll gladly answer all your questions.

Why Should You Choose Affordable Quality Implant-Supported Dentures?

They’re natural looking, they’re comfortable, and they’re reliable with no concerns about slipping, breaking or falling out. You can resume activities like eating steak and you can eliminate speech issues that can come with poorly fitting dentures.
