If you’ve had them a long time, you know the pitfalls that come with wearing dentures. With dentures, you can’t eat a lot of your favorite foods, and you need to have them relined and adjusted regularly as your mouth changes shape. Without natural teeth, your jawbone receives no stimulation from tooth roots, leading to recession and shrinkage in your jawbone and changes to the shape of your face. The only way to restore this bone is through bone grafting and inserting dental implants.
Our team at White Wolf Dental is here to help you regain your confident smile with implant dentures in Port Orange, FL. While traditional dentures rely on suction and messy adhesives for support, we secure snap-in dentures (also called snap-on dentures) firmly to two or more implant posts in your jawbone. Our years of surgical experience combine with the latest technology to help restore your smile securely.
When you consult with us for your implant dentures in Port Orange, FL, we’ll discuss your needs and your goals. Most of our patients already qualify for snap-on dentures, but if you don’t, we can usually perform bone grafting or other treatments to help you qualify. We’ll take detailed digital scans of your mouth and jaw to plan your implant surgery. Not only is our surgical approach minimally invasive, but we use fully guided techniques to improve your recovery time and your chance of success.
The posts for implant dentures are placed in the densest parts of your jaw, usually in the front. Depending on your case, the snap-on dentures will attach to the implants with a ball or bar attachment. They can be made removable for cleaning or left fully attached. As you heal in the three months or more after your surgery, we’ll provide a temporary restoration that you can wear until your final denture is complete. A lot of the time, we can even repurpose your existing denture to secure to your new implants.
With snap-on dentures, you get the strength and stability of dental implants with the versatility of dentures. Because the posts are surgically secured to your jaw, you’ll have a much stronger bite than with traditional dentures. These restorations won’t fall out or become loose, and you won’t need messy adhesives either!
As your snap-on dentures transfer biting pressure from your gums to the implant posts, they will help keep your jawbone healthy and strong. You’ll be able to eat a much more varied diet, and you’ll have an improved quality of life all around!
While implant supported dentures do cost more upfront than traditional dentures do, they save both time and money over the long term. Snap-on dentures don’t require relining or adjustments, which means you spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and you’ll have to make fewer follow-up appointments. Not only do implant dentures last twice as long as their traditional counterparts, but they can reduce the risk of systemic problems such as bone loss later on. That’s why our goal is to make implant dentures affordable for all our patients at White Wolf Dental. Learn more about our affordable dentistry options or call us now to schedule your consultation.
