Palm Beach Implant Attached Dentures: Comfortably Eat, Speak And Smile As If You Had Real Teeth
Implant-supported Dentures Palm Beach Gardens
Many patients with lower dentures suffer from slipping and looseness. This makes eating and speaking quite an ordeal, leading to embarrassment and frustration in everyday life. Removable dentures also cause jawbone resorption, resulting in a loss of volume and fullness to the lips, mouth and face. Fact is, the lower portion of the face ages the fastest, long before the areas around the eyes and forehead. Tooth loss and denture wear lead to a gradual, collapsing of the bite, resulting in a decrease in vertical dimention, or height between the nose and chin. The lips flatten and droop down in the corners while the lower portion of the face caves in, increasing one’s perceived age by decades.
Dental implants are securely anchored to the jawbone, just like natural teeth. They stimulate jawbone support and minimize a patient's jawbone resorption and potential for osteoporosis of the jaws. Once secured, implant restorations will not move. They require no suction, clasps, relines, or messy adhesives like traditional full denture plates. Patients can eat, chewy, crunchy or hard foods that may not have been part of their diet as regular denture wearers. Speech is usually restored to normal, so the embarrassment and frustration of wearing removable dentures is gone. With implant dentistry, Dr. Ajmo can restore facial volume, lip fullness and vertical height between the nose and chin, achieving a more youthful appearance to your mouth and your whole face. You will also like the fact that dental implants usually last a lifetime when cared for properly.
Implant Stabilized Denture
If all your lower teeth are missing, two to four implants may be used to stabilize a lower denture.
The implants are positioned just below the gum tissue and given time to fuse with the bone. Temporary abutments may be placed on the implants until the healing phase is complete. Your existing denture may be modified so that it can be worn without disturbing the implants during the healing process.
After healing, ball-top posts are attached to the implants. Your old denture may be modified to hold clips that snap over the ball-tops, or a new denture with clips will be made.
The denture is snapped into place, where it is retained by the implants and supported by the soft tissue. You simply snap the denture out each night for cleaning.
Implant Supported Prosthesis (Removable)
If all your lower teeth are missing, five implants may be used to support a lower denture. If all your upper teeth are missing, six or more implants may be used to support an upper denture.
The implants are positioned just below the gum tissue and given time to fuse with the bone. Temporary abutments may be placed on the implants until the healing phase is complete. Your existing denture can be modified so that it may be worn without disturbing the implants during the healing process.
You will be fitted for a custom-made bar that attaches to the implants to support a new denture. Your existing denture may be modified to be worn during this period.
The new denture will have attachments which snap or clip it into place. Your new teeth are firmly supported by the jaw, stimulating it and greatly reducing bone loss. You will be able to remove the denture easily for cleaning.
