Yes, you can replace all of your teeth with dental implants. At Bonita Grande Dental, we offer dental implants and implant-supported dentures in Bonita Springs.
Dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement because they’re permanent, durable, and the closest thing to natural teeth. With dental implants, you never have to worry about your teeth slipping or shifting in the mouth, like many people who wear dentures often do.
The Process for Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures combine the best of both worlds when it comes to modern prosthetics. An implant-supported denture is a dental implant topped with a denture.
First, your dentist attaches four to six dental implants into the jawbone. The implants are titanium posts that naturally fuse to the jawbone, becoming a part of your mouth’s anatomy and creating a more stable foundation for your prosthetic teeth.
Once the dental implants firmly merge with the jawbone, we attach the custom-made dentures. Unlike traditional dentures that you can remove on your own, only your dentist can remove your implant-supported dentures.
Implant-supported dentures have many benefits:
- Prevent bone tissue loss and stimulates the gums
- Look, feel, and function like natural teeth
- No adjustment period
- Easy to care for and maintain since they’re like natural teeth
- Restored ability to chew and bite so you can enjoy your favorite meals
Not everyone is a candidate for implant-supported dentures, so we recommend consulting with your dentist to learn more.
