For the ultimate in comfort, security and esthetic value, there are implant-supported dentures. These combine the natural appearance of false teeth and an acrylic base with the security of dental implants. As a Diplomate of the Americana Board of Oral Implantology, Dr. Nawrocki will be able to handle the entire process of restoring your smile with dental implant-supported dentures in our Cocoa Beach, FL dental office. He will place the implants and design your dentures, as well. The finished result will have functional and attractive teeth that remain securely in your mouth thanks to the strong bond between the implants and your jawbone.
A traditional denture normally relies on natural suction to stay in the mouth, but an implant denture is different. The prosthetic is held in place with an appropriate number of dental implants, usually 4 to 6. The implants join with the underlying bone so that they can act as artificial tooth roots, making your dentures more lifelike in the way they function. Some implant dentures can snap onto and off of the posts while others are fixed in place.
The following are indications that you might be a viable candidate for implant dentures.
We can decide whether or not implant dentures are right for you after a consultation.
Implant dentures have a bite force that’s comparable to what your natural teeth have to offer, letting you eat almost anything you want. They also prevent the slipping that often occurs with traditional dentures. Thanks to the stimulation of the implants, the jawbone will be kept healthy and strong; without implants, bone loss is more likely to occur. And compared to traditional dentures that only last around 8 years, implant dentures generally have a much longer lifespan.
