Getting fitted for dentures in the Sanford area has never been easier.

Lack of teeth may lead to problems chewing food enough to keep from choking on large pieces. This may further lead some people to avoid foods that are too hard for them to chew properly. If you have stopped eating certain foods because of bad teeth, then getting dentures in Sanford, FL will allow you to eat the foods you’ve been avoiding again. Having a proper bite will allow you to chew and swallow the foods that you once enjoyed. Dentures are no longer the large, uncomfortable teeth that your grandparents wore. Now dentures look more like natural teeth and can fit securely in your mouth with the help of mini dental implants. You can even opt to get your dentures permanently fixed into your gums.
If dentures are something that sound like they could be right for you, contact Sanford Dental Excellence in the Sanford, FL office today to schedule your consultation. The staff will explain the procedure and all your options to replace missing teeth or to stabilize uncomfortable dentures.
As few as 2-4 traditional dental implants are placed in strategic points in the mouth.
Next, a new streamlined denture is made that is permanently affixed over the dental implants, which never comes out. This type of "All-on-4™" or "hybrid" style denture is slimmer and follows the contour of your natural bite (freeing up the extra space in the roof of your mouth.)
If you have an existing denture, often times it can be retrofitted to be secured with the dental implants or a new denture is made, so that it can snap in and out over the implant abutments. You would remove this denture for routine care and maintenance, just like a traditional denture.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
A permanently affixed implant denture is one of the most reliable and comfortable ways to make your new prosthesis fit into your current lifestyle. With the security of dental implants, your denture can withstand greater chewing forces, allowing you to enjoy all of your favorite foods. That’s something that a traditional denture can’t do, because of how little pressure they can withstand.
Because dental implants enhance your bone quality, your stabilized denture will help to reduce the changes in how your facial profile is affected by bone loss. You might feel like you look younger than you have in years!
