Dentures can be a great way to restore your missing teeth. You get the confidence of a full smile, the ability to eat foods you couldn’t before, and your face gets a full, natural look that went away along with your teeth.
At Overmeyer Family Dental we help a lot of patients get beautiful new dentures but there’s always the same problems with them: they slip, slide, and fall out at the worst possible moments. Even the strongest pastes won’t keep them in the right spots, resulting in a horrible taste and not much support!
If you’ve looked for solutions to your denture woes in the past you probably ended up finding the best available solution: dental implants. While implants are a great way to perfect your smile they also may have put you off because of the price.
We have exciting news for you: there’s no reason to avoid implants when we can use them to simply support your dentures! You’ll be able to save a lot of money and time with implant-supported dentures at our Orlando dentist office!
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Let’s start with the basics: dental implants. Made of titanium, dental implants are like synthetic tooth roots – they’re about the same size and shape and are placed directly into your jaw. As they heal they form an incredibly strong bond with your bone, and the result is a super strong tooth replacement!
To give your dentures a nice strong anchor we’ll place about 4 implants per arch. Once healing has finished (it usually only takes a few months) we’ll place either a bar or a series of metal balls on top of your implants. Your dentures will also be modified with either clasps to fit the bar or sockets to fit the balls. All you’ll have to do is snap your dentures in place when you wake up and the day is yours!
Advantages To Implant Supported Dentures
It probably seems pretty obvious that implant support for your dentures would make a huge difference in your life but you probably don’t know how much!
Implant supported dentures don’t suffer from the same diet restrictions that traditional dentures do. You’ll be able to enjoy some of your favorite foods without worrying about dentures that slip and fall! Imagine being able to sit confidently with your friends or family and eat something you haven’t had a chance to enjoy in years – it would be wonderful!
Better Diet = Better Health
Have you noticed your health declining in the years you’ve had dentures? It isn’t necessarily due to aging – it could be the dietary restrictions that dentures placed on you! It’s a well-established fact that denture wearers tend to not eat as well as those with permanent teeth but implant support will eliminate that!
Your health will improve and so will your life – just think of all the energy you’ll have to do the things you’ve felt too tired or unwell to do with dentures. That could all be a thing of the past with implant supported dentures!
Speak And Smile With Ease
Nothing is as frustrating as trying to spend time with friends and worrying about your inability to speak due to dentures. The wrong tongue motion could just drop them out of place – how humiliating! With implant supported dentures this problem will be a thing the past.Your dentures will stay perfectly in place as you speak, leaving you more time to enjoy social events and engagements.
