Denture Stabilization in Jacksonville, FL

Denture Stabilization

Restorative Dentistry

Dental Implants in Jacksonville, FL

Dentures are valuable for restoring your smile and functionality after tooth loss. However, traditional dentures can become loose or ill-fitting over time, causing discomfort and impacting confidence. If you're experiencing these issues, Dental Arts of Florida can help with denture stabilization in Jacksonville, FL. Our experienced dentists specialize in creating a secure and comfortable fit for your dentures, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

What is Denture Stabilization?

Denture stabilization uses dental implants to create a strong foundation for your artificial teeth. These implants are tiny titanium screws, similar to posts, that we insert into your jawbone. With just a few strategically placed implants, your dentures will snap into place securely, preventing them from moving or falling out.

Types of Stabilized Dentures

Implant-supported dentures offer improved security compared to traditional options. Two main types of implant attachments achieve this stability: ball-and-socket and bar attachments.

Denture Stabilization

Ball-Retained Dentures

Imagine tiny buttons (called implants) placed in your jawbone. These implants hold small metal balls. The denture itself has corresponding sockets that snap securely onto these balls. This ball-and-socket mechanism provides a snug fit for your denture.

Bar-Retained Dentures

This method uses a minimum of two implants and a custom-made metal bar that curves along your jawbone, connecting the implants. The denture is designed to fit over this bar, and clips or attachments on either the denture or implants ensure a secure lock.

Do I Need Denture Stabilization?

The first step is to chat with our dentist. Your jawbone needs enough strength to hold the implant (usually a metal post) to be a good candidate. Without this strong foundation, the implant might not fuse properly with the bone.

But there's good news! Dentists can sometimes adjust the procedure for people with weaker jawbones. This could involve using a different type of implant, like a clip that attaches firmly to your gums. A dentist might recommend a bone graft to strengthen the area before implant placement in more severe cases.

How Denture Stabilization Works?

At Dental Arts of Florida, we follow a comprehensive process to ensure optimal results for denture stabilization in Jacksonville, FL. Here's what you can expect:

  • Initial Consultation: During your first visit, our experienced dentists will evaluate your oral health and discuss your needs and goals. This includes a thorough examination and possibly X-rays to assess the condition of your jawbone.
  • Treatment Planning: We will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your requirements based on your evaluation. This plan will outline the number of implants needed and the procedure details.
  • Implant Placement: The next step involves the surgical placement of dental implants into your jawbone. These implants act as anchors for your dentures. Our skilled team uses advanced techniques to ensure a minimally invasive and comfortable procedure.
  • Healing Period: After implant placement, a healing period is necessary for the implants to fuse with the jawbone (a process called osseointegration). This typically takes a few months, during which temporary dentures may be provided.
  • Denture Attachment: Once the implants are fully integrated, your custom-made dentures will be securely attached. This ensures a stable and comfortable fit, allowing you to enjoy your restored smile immediately.

These factors include the type of materials used for the implants and dentures, any necessary procedures to prepare your mouth for the implants, the number and location of the implants themselves, the type of anesthesia used during the surgery, and the experience of the dentist.

FAQs

Denture stabilization using dental implants has a high success rate, typically over 95%. The success depends on factors such as oral hygiene, bone quality, and overall health.

The timeline varies depending on individual cases. The healing period for osseointegration usually takes a few months. However, the initial consultation and implant placement can be completed within a few visits.

In some cases, existing dentures can be modified to be used with implants. However, new dentures designed for implant stabilization often provide the best fit and comfort.
