Implant dentures are available from Dr. Jennifer Georgiades at Emerald Coast Family Dentistry, PL in Pensacola, FL. This is a revolutionary way to replace a series of missing teeth that only requires the use of a few dental implant devices. When you consider the high success rates of dental implants, you’ll understand why dentists use them with dentures to give patients more smile confidence.
The most effective way to go about replacing a missing tooth is to use a dental implant. It’s not just a superficial tooth covering—it’s a small screw-shaped device that replaces the tooth from beneath the gumline. It serves as a substitute for the root of a natural tooth and is normally fitted with a permanent crown. However, in the case of an implant-supported device, it’s connected to a specialty denture or bridge.
What Are Implant Dentures?
An implant denture is a cross between a traditional denture device and dental implants. Your Pensacola, FL dentist places between two to six implants (depending on the number of false teeth used in the device) and allows them to fuse to your bone tissue over the course of three to six months. In the meanwhile, a custom, specialty denture or bridge is created from a mold of your mouth. The device connects to the implants permanently or can be removed as needed.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
When a denture is anchored by implants, you no longer have to worry about the possibility of the device shifting or falling out at an inopportune time (such as when engaged in conversation or eating in public). In the case of a permanent implant denture, you can simply brush your teeth as you normally would and rinse regularly to maintain good oral hygiene. Having this device will also help you maintain the structure and shape of your jawline.
