The beautiful smile of your youth doesn’t have to be just a memory thanks to advancements in dental implants and dentures.

As more people turn to dental implants to replace missing teeth, people with more profound tooth loss are discovering an innovative option where implants act as an anchor for a complete row of replacement teeth.

One of our skilled dentists can give you a complete set of natural-looking teeth that attach to two, four or six well-placed implants that would give you back your smile. This treatment is called an implant-supported denture or an implant-supported bridge.

To determine if an implant-supported denture, also called an overdenture, is a possibility, call Plantation Dental Services today at (954) 651-9315. After your consult, you will have answers these questions:

  • Would an implant-supported denture work for me?
  • What is the timetable for restoring my smile?
  • How can I fit this treatment into my budget?

What is the Difference Between a Removable Denture and an Implant-Supported Denture?

The denture you are most likely familiar with is a row of false teeth on a base that rests atop your gums. Muscles in your mouth and face, with an assist from denture adhesive, help keep the appliance in place, though it may take some getting used to. Many wearers complain dentures can slip if you open your mouth too wide when you eat, laugh or sing. And don’t forget to set aside time nightly to clean them.

A permanent implant denture allows you wake up every morning with a great smile, without having to pause to put it in. Our dentist in Plantation will pinpoint placement of two to six dental implants in your jaw where they will fuse with the bone to create a stable base. A denture permanently attaches to the implants, giving you natural-looking teeth that won’t slip, slide or need to soak overnight in a glass.

What Are the Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?

At your first visit with our team at Plantation Dental Services you will discuss the benefits of getting an implant-supported denture. Consider these reasons while making your decision:

  • Unlike a removable top denture, an implant-supported top denture does not need a piece along the roof of the mouth which sometimes feels awkward, can impact your speech, and can interfere with taste buds.
  • No need for denture adhesive.
  • Implant-supported dentures won’t slip. Instead, they provide denture stabilization.
  • They cannot be dropped and damaged.
  • Implants act as natural tooth roots and prevents jawbone loss.
  • And with less bone loss, your appearance benefits because there will be less premature wrinkling around your mouth.
  • You’ll be able to eat, laugh and sing without fear of the denture slipping.

And best of all, with a return of your youthful smile, you’ll experience a boost to your self-confidence.

What Are the Different Types of Implant-Supported Dentures?

Our dentist will ask you to consider two types of implant-supported dentures.

  • A “permanent” overdenture is just that – it is permanently affixed to the implants in your mouth and you take care of them just like you would natural teeth.
  • A removable overdenture snaps in and out from the implants for daily cleaning, which remain embedded in the jawbone. This removal denture may be a more affordable option for you.

Please talk with our dentist to determine which of these options is best.
