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 many of your teeth or the ones you have are in poor condition, implant dentures might be the solution for you.
Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums and are affixed with adhesive, implant-supported dentures are permanently implanted into your jawbone and require no adhesive or special maintenance. They look and function like your natural teeth so you can resume eating your favorite foods and showing off your great smile. The only requirement is that you have sufficient bone in your jaw to support the implants. If you think implant-supported dentures might work for you, call our office in Mount Dora at (352) 729-3668 to get more information or to schedule a consultation.
What Kind of Dentures Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are permanent appliances for replacing teeth. With these dentures, you’re able to bite and chew like you did with your natural teeth and you don’t have to worry about them chafing your gums or debris becoming trapped under them. They work best when you have sufficient bone to support the implant. Implant-supported dentures are recommended for installation in the lower jaw, but are successfully used in both upper and lower jaw applications as long as there’s enough bone structure. Call our office in Mount Dora if you want to schedule a consultation or have questions about this type of dentures.
Do Implant-Supported Dentures Really Work?
There are two options for implant-supported dentures, a bar-retained type and a ball-retained type. The bar-retained type has a curved metal bar that supports the implant dentures while the ball-retained type uses round attachments that are installed into sockets on the denture. Both work equally well and your dentist will make a recommendation as to the best type for your needs. Both have acrylic gums that look like natural gums and acrylic or porcelain teeth that look very natural. They’re also very affordable. For more information on our affordable quality implant-supported dentures, call our office in Mount Dora at (352) 729-3668.
How Does an Implant Denture Procedure Work?
There are two steps to getting implant-supported dentures and the entire procedure can take up to several months depending on the option you select. One option is to have the implants surgically placed into the jawbone and when the gum has healed, the dentures will be affixed to them. The other option places implants and dentures in the same office visit and will take a matter of hours. Your dentist will recommend the option that’s best for you during your consultation.
What Should I Expect to Pay for My Dentures?
The cost of denture implants will vary and are unique to the patient. Factors that will influence the ultimate cost include your physical health and your dental health, the type of attachments you select, and your insurance coverage. During your initial consultation in our office, your dentist will provide you with a detailed estimate for your implant-supported dentures cost.

How Do You Care for Denture Implants?
Caring for your denture implants is the same as caring for your natural teeth. It’s important to brush and floss daily, preferably in the morning and at night, and to maintain good oral hygiene. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a horizontal brushing motion using a gentle pressure. If you need a deeper cleaning, a proxabrush is a good solution. Many patients find that a dental threader helps with flossing. If you have any questions about caring for your new dentures, call our office in Mount Dora and we’ll gladly answer all your questions.
