Do you have loose fitting dentures? Are you tired of messing with adhesives? If so, you might be a candidate for implant supported dentures.
Implant supported dentures are over-dentures supported by mini implants placed in the jaw. They are fully removable dentures that attach to an implant by a ball or a bar attachment. The implants support the dentures with a stable base and without the need for adhesives.
Many traditional denture wearers have found that moving to implant supported dentures is more comfortable compared to regular dentures. They also look, and feel more like natural teeth.
Most implants are implanted in the jawbone, to replace the tooth roots. When tooth roots are lost, the jawbone can deteriorate, altering your facial shape, and causing you problems eating and speaking.
The implants are usually small screws made from titanium alloys. They are surgically embedded in the jawbone through the gums. Once they have fused to the jawbone, they will be strong enough to support the actual removable dentures.
The dentists at Delray Beach Family Dentistry will have your dentures custom designed just for you. They will be as close as possible to the color and texture of your natural teeth.
