Anyone who has lost most or all of their teeth or whose teeth are in very bad shape knows how difficult it can be to eat and to carry on a conversation. Implant-supported dentures can be the answer to your problems. They can restore your ability to eat, to communicate, and to flash a sparkling, even smile.
Unlike traditional dentures, denture implants are permanently installed into your jaw so they won’t move around, fall out or break like traditional dentures can. You don’t have to remove them for cleaning either since they are surgically implanted into your jawbone. Implant-supported dentures can be a lifesaver for those with few or no good teeth. Call our office in Ocala for more information on these great dentures.
What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are a permanent solution to missing teeth. The implants are surgically implanted into your jawbone and the dentures are permanently affixed to them. There are two types of implant dentures, bar-retained and ball-retained, and your dentist will advise you of the best type for your situation. Denture implants have an acrylic base that looks like your gums and the porcelain or acrylic teeth look like your natural teeth so no one needs to know that you have dentures. They are fixed installations so you can eat your favorite foods again and you’ll have a beautiful smile once more. The only prerequisite is that you have enough bone in your jaw to support the implants. For more information about our affordable quality implant-supported dentures in Ocala or to schedule an appointment, call us at (352) 502-4381.
How Well Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?
Since implant-supported dentures are surgically installed into your jawbone, they become part of your mouth and function like your natural teeth. You can bite and chew like you did with your natural teeth and you don’t have to worry about them falling out or breaking or moving around. They’re as comfortable as your natural teeth except you don’t have to worry about cavities. Normal brushing and flossing are recommended just as you did with your natural teeth, but you don’t have to remove your implants every night for cleaning and no food particles can get trapped under them. For more information on affordable quality implant-supported dentures in Ocala, call our office at (352) 502-4381 and we’ll gladly answer all your questions.
What Should I Expect When Having Implants Installed?
The implant procedure can be completed in one office visit or two, depending on the type of installation you and your dentist decide on. Sometimes, the implants are installed in the jawbone on the initial visit and when they have healed over, then the dentures are installed onto the implants. This procedure can take up to six months depending on the amount of time it takes the incisions to heal. The other type of installation places the implants and the dentures during the same visit. You and your dentist will decide the best type of installation at your consultation for implant-supported dentures in our office in Ocala.
Are Implant Supported Dentures Costly?
We strive to keep our prices competitive so that we can offer affordable denture implants to all of our patients who need dentures. Your implant-supported dentures cost will depend on several factors including your overall oral health, the options you select, and the insurance benefits you have. During your initial consultation in our office in Ocala, your dentist will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the cost of denture implants for your situation.
What Type of Benefits Do Implant-Supported Dentures Provide?
Implant-supported dentures will enable you to eat your favorite foods once again, you can bite and chew without fear of breaking or losing your dentures. You’ll have a mouth full of beautiful teeth that look like your natural teeth so you’ll have a great smile once again. Denture implants don’t require removal for cleaning, you need only to brush and floss like you used to with your natural teeth. Your self-confidence will receive a boost because of your beautiful smile and your implant dentures will be affordable. For all these benefits and more, denture implants are a great investment. Call us in Ocala for more information and to schedule a consultation.
Do Implant-Supported Dentures Require Special Upkeep?
There’s no special maintenance required with denture implants, simply brush and floss like you did with your natural teeth. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush in a horizontal motion with a gentle pressure. If you need a deeper cleaning, a proxabrush may help and some patients find that a dental threader helps with flossing.
