Implant-Supported Dentures

Thanks to evolving dental treatments and technologies, tooth replacement options offered by the team at Gentle Dentistry in Tampa, Florida, have never looked more natural or comfortable. An implant-supported denture is one such tooth replacement option for those looking to replace an entire arch of teeth. Drs. Angela Rasmussen and Amanda Del Cueto are happy to offer this option that helps you regain your smile with unrivaled functionality thanks to implant dentures.

Dental Implants and Dentures 

A dental implant is a form of tooth restoration that utilizes titanium posts surgically implanted into the jawbone. Once healing has been completed, an artificial tooth (usually a crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are considered the gold standard of tooth replacement options due to their strength and durability. In addition, because the implant is inserted into the jawbone, it mimics the missing tooth root. This is a significant benefit that only a dental implant provides. Because the implant fuses to the jawbone through osseointegration, it provides the stimulation needed for the jawbone to remain healthy. 

Dental implants can be used as a foundation for an implant-supported denture. A full arch denture will attach to the implant, providing an option that eliminates the need for dental adhesive and provides unmatched stability. This is called a fixed hybrid denture, the best solution for patients missing all their teeth in the upper, lower, or both arches. It is not removable and is an excellent option for those who dislike taking their dentures in and out of their mouth. 

Benefits Of Implant Supported Denture 

  • A unique metal framework is constructed and used to attach the dental implants, providing a stable and firm foundation
  • Provides the best functionality when it comes to biting and looks completely natural
  • Replaces the missing tooth as well as the root, preserving the health of the jawbone and preventing irreversible bone absorption
  • Not as bulky as regular dentures
  • There is room left between the gums and the appliance, allowing for easy cleaning – good oral health is critically important to dentures that cannot be removed
  • Implants take the pressure of the dentures off the gums
