COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
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 several of your teeth or your teeth are in bad condition, then implant-supported dentures might work well for you. Unlike traditional dentures that must be removed and cleaned each night, implant dentures are permanently installed into your jawbone and they look and function like your natural teeth. If you’ve had to give up many of your favorite foods because of your inability to chew, then denture implants can be the answer. If you have difficulty enunciating because of your lack of teeth or you have indigestion because you can’t chew your food properly, then these dentures might be the solution for you. Call our office in Englewood to learn more about these affordable quality implant-supported dentures.
Is an Implant-Supported Denture Used for Tooth Replacement?
Implant-supported dentures are available in two styles and your dentist will recommend the type that will work best for you. One type has a curved metal bar to which the dentures are attached. The other type uses ball-shaped devices to attach the dentures to the implants in your jawbone. Both types have an acrylic base that looks like your natural gums and either porcelain or acrylic teeth so your teeth and gums will have the appearance of your natural teeth. Traditional dentures rest on your gums and must be affixed with adhesive. This means that they can move around, fall out, or break and sometimes they can chafe your gums. Implant supported dentures are comfortable and won’t fall out. Call us in Englewood to learn more or to schedule an appointment.
Will Implant-Supported Dentures Work Well for Me?
If you are missing many of your teeth or if your teeth aren’t in good shape, implant-supported dentures may work well for you. You need enough bone in your jaw to anchor the teeth but otherwise there are no requirements other than the desire to get them. During your consultation with one of our dentists in Englewood, you’ll learn which type of denture implant is best for you and how long the procedure will take. Sometimes, implants can be placed in one office visit and sometimes it takes two visits.
What’s the Procedure for Placing Implant Dentures?
There are two methods for installing implants. In the first method, implants are inserted into the jawbone during the initial visit. On the second visit, which can be up to six months later, the dentist will expose the implant, affix the dentures to the implants and your new teeth will be installed. Sometimes, the entire procedure can be accomplished in one visit but your dentist will make that determination during your consultation.

Are Implant-Supported Dentures Easy to Maintain?
Implant-supported dentures require no more maintenance than your natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing will keep them looking good and working like they should. You need to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and gentle pressure. Brush in a horizontal motion and keep the brush at an angle to the teeth. If you need a deeper cleaning, a proxabrush can help and many patients find that a dental threader helps with flossing.
