We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
If you’re among those who are missing many or most of their teeth, daily life can be a challenge. Eating your favorite foods like steak or popcorn, speaking clearly enough to have a conversation, and worrying about breaking or losing your dentures can make life much more stressful than it should be. The good news is that affordable quality implant-supported dentures could be the answer to your problem.
Implant dentures are permanent installations that won’t move or slip like traditional dentures and they’ll enable you to resume your normal activities. If you’re interested in getting implant-supported dentures in Bradenton, call our office at (941) 357-1292 and let us answer your questions. We can schedule a consultation with a dentist to talk about your options.
How Are Implant-Supported Dentures Different?
Unlike traditional dentures that look artificial and must be removed and cleaned every day, implant-supported dentures are permanent, inserted into your jawbone and you maintain them just like you would your natural teeth. They look like natural teeth and gums, don’t slip or fall out, and they’re much more comfortable than traditional dentures that can chafe your gums. Implant-supported dentures can restore your ability to eat your favorite foods and have enjoyable conversations with those around you. You’ll regain your self-confidence knowing that you have a full set of beautiful teeth once again.
Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work Better Than Other Types?
Implant-supported dentures are available in two types and your dentist will recommend the best type for your situation after your dental exam. One type of implant denture, the bar-retained denture, uses a curved metal bar to support the implants. The other type, the ball-retained denture, uses round attachments that are attached to sockets on the denture. This results in a permanently installed set of artificial teeth that appear and function like your own teeth. You don’t have to worry about slipping, breaking, or having your dentures chafe or fall out.
What Should I Expect During an Implant Denture Procedure?
There are two avenues for obtaining an implant denture. One requires two office visits and up to six months, the other can be completed in a single office visit. During your initial consultation in our office in Bradenton, your dentist will recommend the type that will work best based on your situation. Either way, the implants are installed into the jawbone under the gum line and then the dentures will be affixed to the implants. If you have questions about this or want to schedule a consultation, call our office in Bradenton and we’ll gladly answer your questions.
How Much Do Implant-Supported Dentures Cost?
Your implant-supported dentures cost will depend on several factors that are unique to you. The state of your general and oral health will play a role as there may be other dental issues that need to be addressed. The type of attachment that you select and any insurance benefits you have will also factor into the final cost of denture implants.
Are There Benefits to Implant-Supported Dentures?
If you have many missing teeth and don’t want traditional dentures, affordable quality implant-supported dentures might be the solution for you. You don’t have to worry about removing your teeth every day, your teeth and gums will look natural, and your jawbone will regain its firm line. Since your teeth are the first stage of your digestive process, you’ll probably see an improvement in your digestive system. If you want to schedule a consultation in our office in Bradenton, call us at (941) 357-1292 and we’ll be happy to answer any questions and schedule an appointment with the dentist.
What Type of Daily Upkeep Is Required with Implant-Supported Dentures?
Unlike traditional dentures, implant dentures require only the upkeep that your natural teeth did. Daily brushing and flossing should keep your denture implants in good shape, looking and functioning at their best. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush, brush in horizontal strokes with a gentle pressure and floss either before or after brushing. Morning and evening are best but you can also brush and floss after every meal. If you need a deeper cleaning, you can use a proxabrush, which is specially designed to clean implant-dentures. A dental threader might be the best option for flossing but call us in Bradenton if you want more information.
Why Are Implant-Supported Dentures a Better Choice?
Implant-supported dentures are a better choice for several reasons. They’re more natural looking, they’re more comfortable, they’re easier to care for, they don’t slip, they help retain the line of your jaw, and they allow you to chew and speak normally. They enable you to resume eating your favorite foods and they won’t chafe your gums. For all of these reasons and more, denture implants are a great option if you need dentures. Call us in Bradenton for more information and to schedule a consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.
