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 missing a substantial number of teeth or the ones you have are in bad condition, then implant-supported dentures might be a good solution for you. Implant dentures are permanent installations that have the appearance of natural teeth and they function like your natural teeth. You’re able to resume eating your favorite foods, like steak and apples, without the worry of breaking your dentures. They won’t slip around and you don’t have to remove them every night like you do with traditional dentures. If you want more information on implant-supported dentures in Clearwater, then call us at (727) 286-3945 and we will be happy to answer all of your questions.
Is There Only One Kind of Implant-Supported Denture?
There are two types of implant supported dentures that are commonly used. Bar-retained dentures have a curved metal bar that supports the dentures. Ball-retained dentures are implants with ball-shaped attachments which are installed into sockets on the denture. Both are common surgical procedures that are done in the dental office and we’ll do our best to make you comfortable during the procedure. Both types look and function like your natural teeth. Call us in Clearwater to schedule a consultation or for more information on these great dental options.
Will Implant-Supported Dentures Work Like My Natural Teeth?
Implant-supported dentures both look and function like your natural teeth so no one will know you have dentures unless you tell them. You care for them by brushing and flossing, just like you would your natural teeth. You also have the freedom to eat your favorite foods again with these implant dentures. Many patients report that they regain their self-confidence when they have implant-dentures installed and they regain the structure of a firm jawline.
What’s the Process for Installing Implant Dentures?
If you opt for implant-supported dentures, then your first step is to determine the type of denture you want, either the bar-retained or the ball-retained and your dentist will make a recommendation as to the best type for your situation. Then, depending on your individual situation, you’ll have the implants installed in either one or two office visits. Sometimes, the implants are installed at one visit and the dentures attached a few months later. Other times, the entire procedure can be done in one office visit and you leave our office with a new set of natural looking teeth. Call us in Clearwater at (727) 286-3945 to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists to determine the best option for you.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures Expensive?
Affordable quality implant-supported dentures are less expensive than you might think and are a great value when you consider all of the benefits they provide. The total cost of denture implants will depend on several factors including your overall health and your dental health, the type of attachments you choose, and any insurance benefits you may have. When you call our office in Clearwater, we’ll be able to provide more accurate information on your estimated implant-supported dentures cost and schedule a consultation for you.
Are There Numerous Benefits to Implant-Supported Dentures?
Anyone who has lost many or most of their teeth knows how vital their teeth are to their daily life. With implant-supported dentures, you’ll be able to resume eating your favorite foods, you’ll regain self-confidence in your smile, you won’t have to worry about your dentures breaking or chafing your gums, you’ll be able to speak clearly again, and most importantly, you’ll once again have a radiant smile. Your teeth are very important to your digestive process and your overall health, so don’t delay if you think you are a good candidate for implant-supported dentures in Clearwater. Call our dental office to schedule an appointment.
What Type of Care Do Implant-Supported Dentures Require?
Just like your natural teeth, implant dentures require daily brushing and flossing, preferably every morning and every night. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush in a horizontal motion with a gentle pressure and maintain the brush at an angle to the teeth. If your dentures need a deeper cleaning, then a proxabrush might help. It’s designed to reach areas of the dentures that a regular toothbrush might not be able to and some patients find that a dental threader helps with flossing. Call us in Clearwater at (727) 286-3945 if you have more questions about caring for your implant-supported dentures.
