Learn About Implants
An implant-supported full denture or full bridge can replace all of your teeth including some of the roots. Full mouth dental implants in Dunedin Fl are long lasting, more comfortable, and more stable than other conventional dentures. TLC Dentistry can make the dental implants look and function just like natural teeth, creating more natural chewing and biting capacity.
Implant-supported full bridges and dentures help to keep the bone that previously surrounded the tooth roots, intact and healthy. Looking at full mouth dental implants long term, they are easier to maintain and more aesthetically pleasing than conventional dentures. While conventional dentures can often make it more difficult to eat certain food and may lead to jawbone recession, implants will give you a long lasting and beautiful smile.
Placing the implants is a multiple step procedure that requires each case to be looked at separately by a dental professional to determine the best plan for each patient. When conditions permit, some of the steps may be combined.
In general, step one consists of placing cylinder or screw looking implants into your jaw. Over the next few months, the bone and implants bond together forming anchors for the artificial teeth. Temporary replacements for your teeth can be worn over the implants during these few months.
The next step is not required by some implants (one-stage systems), but is typically necessary to uncover the implants in order to attach extensions. Temporary healing caps as well as other connecting devices will allow crowns to attach to the implants therefor creating a foundation for your new teeth to be placed. Healing for your gums will take a few weeks after this phase.
Next, the connecting device that holds your new set of teeth are tightened down or clipped to a bar or round ball anchor where a denture would snap on or off depending upon the amount of implants that have been placed. Finally, a full set of bridges or dentures are created and attached to metal posts (abutments), or the connecting device. Soon after these stages are complete, you will have a new and confident smile.
