Conversation with friends might be difficult because you have difficulty with speech. You might notice that your jawline is less firm than it used to be.

With these appliances, you can resume eating and speaking without worrying about your dentures slipping or falling out or breaking.
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are different from other dentures and tend to be more affordable. They’re also different than traditional dentures that rest on top of your gums and must be adhered with adhesive. If your jawbone is strong enough to support implants and you are missing many of your teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for our affordable quality implant-supported dentures. They work well in both upper and lower jaw applications. If you have questions about the feasibility of this type of denture for you, call our office in Orlando at (321) 594-2624 and we can answer all your questions.
How Are Implant-Supported Dentures Different?
Traditional dentures rest on top of the gums, must be removed daily for cleaning, and are reattached using messy adhesive. Implant-supported dentures are available in two types: bar-retained dentures and ball-retained dentures. Both bases look like your natural gums and have either acrylic or porcelain teeth so they look very natural. Ball-retained dentures use round attachments on the implants that are connected to sockets on the appliance. Bar-retained dentures have one curved metal bar that supports the denture. Call us at (321) 594-2624 in Orlando to schedule a consultation and to get more information.
What’s the Procedure for Getting Implant-Supported Dentures?
There are two procedures for getting dentures implanted, one will require two office visits and take several months. Alternatively, the dentist may be able to complete your dental implants in one visit depending on your unique circumstances and the results of your initial examination. Call us today in Orlando to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists who will let you know the procedure that will work best for you.
What’s the Cost of Implant Supported Dentures?
Your cost for affordable quality implant-supported dentures will depend on your unique situation. Factors that will influence your final implant-supported dentures cost include your overall dental health and the severity of the issues that need to be addressed. The type of attachments you select and any insurance benefits you have will also affect your final cost. Call our dental office in Orlando to schedule a consultation and your dentist will provide you with a detailed and accurate cost of denture implants.
What Are the Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?
Those who are missing many or most of their teeth may have difficulty with simple, daily activities such as eating or talking. Their dental health may have worsened and they may become more self-conscious about their smile. Implant-supported dentures can help alleviate all of these issues and restore your physical and emotional health. If you’re ready to resume your former activities and want comfortable and affordable dentures, call us today at (321) 594-2624 in Orlando for more information.
What Type of Maintenance Is Necessary for Implant-Supported Dentures?
Unlike traditional dentures that need to be removed and cleaned daily, implant-supported dentures are permanently placed into your jawbone and need only the care that your natural teeth would. Daily flossing and brushing will keep them looking new and functioning at their best, preventing debris from accumulating which can lead to an infection. You need to use a soft toothbrush and brush horizontally with gentle pressure. If deeper cleaning becomes necessary, a proxabrush can clean around the tips of the denture. A dental threader can help remove debris that the proxabrush misses. If you have more questions about maintaining your new implant-supported dentures, call our office in Orlando and we’ll gladly answer your questions.
Why Are Implant Supported Dentures Better?
Implant-supported dentures are more convenient, they’re more natural looking, they require no removal or adhesive, they don’t slip or fall out, and they’ll help maintain a stable jaw line. Traditional dentures can be uncomfortable and can chafe your gums. Implant-supported dentures are comfortable and permanent and look like your own teeth. You can resume your activities like eating steak and speaking clearly, and your dental health with also vastly improve. If you decide that implant dentures are the right choice for you, call our office at (321) 594-2624 in Orlando and schedule a consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.
