Are Implant-supported Dentures Right for Everyone?
If you have enough bone in your jaw to support two implants, then you’re probably a good candidate for denture implants, but your dentist will verify that during your initial consultation in our Rockefeller Plaza office. Many people avoid implant dentures because of the perceived cost. However, we do our utmost to provide our patients with affordable, quality implant-supported dentures, so if finances are deterring you from getting denture implants, then we can help you. We’ll work with you to make your denture implants fit within your budget. Anyone who wants reliable, secure, and comfortable dentures should consider implant-supported dentures, so call our Rockefeller Plaza office for more information.
Is an Implant-Supported Denture Secure and What’s the Installation Process?
There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and ball-retained. Bar-retained dentures use a curved metal bar to secure the implants and the dentures are clipped to them. Ball-retained dentures have ball-shaped attachments on the implants and those fit into sockets on the denture. Both are equally reliable and durable, your choice would depend on your preference and your dentist’s recommendation.
Installation usually takes two or three office visits. During your first visit, your dentist will prep the site and then install the posts. After the sites have healed, which can take up to six months, you’ll return to our office to have the dentures attached to the implants. Occasionally, patients can have the complete procedure in one day, but that’s at the discretion of your dentist, so be sure to ask if you’re interested in our one-day procedure.
Before we start work on your denture implants, we’ll provide you with an estimate of your implant-supported dentures cost. If the cost is a prohibiting factor, then we’ll work with you to make it fit within your budget. We want our patients to have the dental work they need without being constrained by finances, so we’ll do our best to make the cost of denture implants work for you.
Do the Benefits of Implant-supported Dentures Justify The Extra Cost?
Although implant-supported dentures may be initially more expensive, they may be more cost-effective over time. Denture implants are permanently installed into your jaw, so they won’t slip or slide or fall out and break. There are no special maintenance routines, you care for your implants the same as you did for your natural teeth, assuming you have good oral hygiene habits. You won’t experience the embarrassment of dentures that move around or fall out at inopportune moments, and you’ll always have a full set of teeth in your mouth.
Denture implants have an acrylic base that functions as the gum, and either acrylic or porcelain teeth. Both look very natural. Unless you tell them, no one will know that you’re wearing dentures. Implants will also help maintain the structural alignment of your face and jaw, which traditional dentures are unable to do. With proper care, denture implants can last for decades or a lifetime. Since implants are a one-time expense with little or no subsequent out-of-pocket expense, you may find them to be more cost-effective over time. Plus, they’re more comfortable and look more natural. If you have more questions or want to schedule an appointment, call our Rockefeller Plaza office and let us help you.
Why Should I Get Implant-supported Dentures?
If you want to always have a mouth full of teeth that look very natural, if you want dentures that remain in place without messy adhesives, if you want the security and self-confidence that a beautiful smile provides, then denture implants may be an excellent solution for you. You’ll never again have to worry about having embarrassing moments due to your dentures malfunctioning. You won’t develop premature wrinkles around your mouth due to missing teeth, and you won’t need special maintenance routines for your dentures. You can resume eating your favorite foods and chewing foods, like steak and barbecue. If you want to schedule an appointment or if you want more information, call our Rockefeller Plaza office and we will gladly answer all your questions.
How Do I Maintain My Denture Implants?
Your denture implants require no special care routine, they require only the good oral hygiene practices that you’d use with your natural teeth. Brush at least twice each day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a horizontal motion. Maintain your toothbrush at an angle to your gums and brush for at least 30 seconds. Floss daily so that food particles don’t get stuck between your teeth — your dentist may recommend a proxabrush for deep cleaning and a floss threader for hard-to-reach areas.
In most cases, your regular toothbrush should be satisfactory for daily cleaning, but your dentist may recommend a proxabrush for deep cleaning on a schedule provided by your dentist. Flossing is essential and you may want to buy a floss-threader for areas that are difficult to reach. With proper care and maintenance, your implants should last for decades or the rest of your life.
