Dentist uses implants to stabilize dentures in Miami, FL
Patients with tooth loss in the Miami area are encouraged to visit their dentist as soon as possible to discuss tooth replacement options. There are several methods available for replacing one or more teeth, including:
  • Dentures
  • Dental bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Implant-supported dentures
When patients are replacing an entire arch of teeth but are uneasy about ill-fitted dentures, they are welcome to ask our team at Miami Modern Dental about the advantages of moving forward with treatments such as implant-supported dentures.

What are implant-supported dentures?

For an arch of teeth, many patients will find dentures to be a suitable solution. Unfortunately, these are known for fitting poorly. Poor fit means poor function, and also a higher risk of discomfort and irritation. Instead, we encourage individuals to think about integrating dental implants with their dentures for optimum fit and function.

Implant-supported dentures use a number of implants along the dental arch that snap into place with the full dentures. This gives the dentures the stabilization they need so patients can enjoy their favorite foods without having to worry about their dentures falling out or failing them. Additionally, this stabilization ensures the dentures will not fall out at inopportune times, such as social engagements. This is the strongest option available to patients who are interested in replacing all of their teeth.

Who is a candidate for implant-supported dentures?

Most patients with sufficient bone structure will benefit from the use of implants alongside their dentures. Bone of the jaw is required to ensure successful placement of the implants, after which the process of osseointegration occurs to build the bone naturally around the implant for strength. Patients can book an evaluation to determine if this option is right for them.
