Denture Stabilization in Lakewood Ranch, FL

We believe you are more than just a set of teeth and should be treated as such.

Denture Stabilization

Over time, as you wear your dentures, you lose the bony structure that supports your soft tissues. Because your soft tissues make contact with your dentures, this too will start to recede with the bone. As a result, you’re in a constant state of adjustment, discomfort, and difficulty with everyday functions like speaking, chewing and smiling. The solution is denture stabilization. 

Your dentist will place between two and four implants in an arch and will retrofit your dentures with snap-on attachments. These attachments hold the dentures firmly in place by the implants. Two implants are the minimum number placed to provide stability. Placing three or more implants will increase chewing power. Your dentures will still be easily removable for cleaning or other care.

Benefits of Denture Stabilization

  • Provides needed support for correct speaking, chewing and smiling.
  • Prevents facial shape changes caused by jawbone recession.
  • Provides an excellent alternative for those who do not want to pay for individual implants.
  • Dental adhesives are no longer necessary.

If you think you could benefit from denture stabilization, call Smiles at Lakewood Ranch at 941-216-3803 today to schedule an appointment.

Ball Attachment Dentures

Providing comfort and stability, the simplest option for implant-retained dentures is the ball attachment denture.  Generally used when all of the lower teeth are missing, this system works by placing two dental implants in the lower jaw that allows the patient to snap the denture into place. The stability and functionality of the ball attachment denture give patients approximately 60% of what they had with their natural teeth, as opposed to 10% of the functionality of loose dentures.

Implant Retained Dentures

When you have lost your natural teeth, a variety of complications can arise that impact your physical and emotional health. You may find it difficult to speak clearly or chew your favorite foods. You may be embarrassed and try to hide your smile from others. You may also experience shifting among your remaining teeth, causing additional discomfort in your mouth and jaw.

Implant retained dentures offer a solution that provides comfort and relief. They can replace both upper and lower teeth, giving you a secure, natural-looking option that is not only more comfortable but also more convenient than traditional dentures.

Implant-Supported Partial Dentures

If you’re missing only a few natural teeth, an implant-supported partial denture provides retention that is superior to that of traditional dentures, allowing you to bite, chew and talk properly – without the visible clasps. The partial denture can be fixed or removable. Both are good options, and the best option for you may depend on your personal needs and what your dentist recommends. For both types, the partial denture is held in place by titanium implants, which are secured into the jawbone for a sturdy hold.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is a removable, yet natural-looking dental appliance that helps restore the form and function of your jaw by replacing one or more missing teeth. When you are missing one or more teeth, the bite pressures shift in your mouth. Other teeth may begin to move to compensate for the “gap” in your bite, and you may experience shrinking of both the soft tissues and the supporting bone near your missing teeth. This can alter your physical appearance and lead to subsequent problems with your other teeth. A partial denture keeps the underlying structures of your mouth – your gums, jawbone, facial muscles, etc. – active and engaged. It helps prevent further shifting of the other teeth in your mouth while giving you the confidence of having a beautiful, complete smile.

Screw Retained Dentures

When you have lost your natural teeth, a variety of complications can arise that impact your physical and emotional health – beyond just your smile. Dentures are an important part of restoring your smile’s appearance, but they can pose challenges for some. Implant retained dentures offer you a secure, natural-looking option that is not only more comfortable but also more convenient than traditional dentures.

You deserve to smile big and laugh around friends and family.
