If this sounds like the solution you’re seeking for your missing and badly damaged teeth, then give us a call at (941) 462-3706 in Lakewood Ranch and let us schedule a consultation for you.
What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are surgically implanted into the jawbone and function just like your natural teeth. There are two types of implant-supported dentures, one is bar-retained and the other is ball-retained. Both work well, so it’s a matter of preference and the recommendation of your dentist. The main requirement is that you have sufficient bone in your jaw to accommodate the implants. You’ll be able to speak clearly and eat your favorite foods once again. Typically, they work well for both upper and lower jaw applications. If you want more information or want to schedule a consultation, give us a call at (941) 462-3706 in Lakewood Ranch.
Do Implant-Supported Dentures Really Work Well?
Implant supported dentures can be the next best thing to your natural teeth. Since they’re permanently installed in your jaw, you don’t need to worry about them chafing your gums, breaking, falling out, or accumulating detritus underneath them. Unlike traditional dentures that need to be removed and cleaned each night, denture implants are brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth. If you want to learn more about getting implant-supported dentures in Lakewood Ranch, call us at (941) 462-3706 and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
What’s the Procedure for Getting Implant Dentures?
If you choose to get implant dentures, then the first step is to talk to your dentist about the type of denture you want, either bar-retained or ball-retained, and that will help determine the next step. The installation can be performed in either one office visit or two, depending on the recommendation of your dentist. The implants are first installed into the jawbone under the gum line and then the dentures are affixed to the top of the implants. If the procedure is done in two visits, they’ll be up to six months apart, depending on how long it takes the implants to heal. Your dentist will answer all of your questions during your consultation in our office in Lakewood Ranch.
What’s the Cost of Denture Implants?
Several factors will influence your denture implants cost. Each procedure is unique to the individual and your dentist will provide you with a detailed estimate of your implant-supported dentures cost. Factors that will influence it include your overall health and dental health, the type of attachments you select, and the insurance benefits that you have.

Do Implant-Supported Dentures Require Special Maintenance?
Your new implant-supported dentures need no more care than your natural teeth did. Regular brushing and flossing will help keep your teeth looking and functioning their best. Since they are permanently installed, you won’t have to worry about taking them out and cleaning them. Just use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a horizontal motion with a gentle pressure. If you need a deeper cleaning, a proxabrush can help and some patients find that a dental threader helps with flossing.
