Eating, talking, and smiling, things that others take for granted, may be a constant reminder of the challenges you face on a daily basis. Do not be discouraged. There is a solution. Implant-Supported Bridges and Dentures are a comprehensive, completely customizable way to fix those dental problems permanently and get your smile back.
At Orange Dental Partners in North Palm Beach, FL, we offer implant-supported bridges and implant-supported dentures North Palm Beach patients can utilize as part of a comprehensive array of restorative treatments. Our staff is not only skilled, educated, and experienced but committed to providing each patient with unmatched care and the safest, most effective solutions for their dental health.
Our North Palm Beach implant-supported bridges and dentures are advanced dental solutions that offer stability, functionality, and aesthetics to replace multiple missing teeth. These treatments involve the use of dental implants, which are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone. Both treatments rely on the biological process of osseointegration, where the bone will fuse to the implant, ensuring a secure foundation. Once the bone has securely fused to the implants, a bridge or denture can be attached to the implants allowing for replacement of multiple teeth. Because of the integration of modern techniques and materials, these methods can offer patients enhanced comfort, and long-term dental stability. Implant-supported bridges are attached to the implants after implant placement, abutments, or connectors. These abutments serve as anchors for a custom-fabricated dental bridge, carefully designed to match the patient's natural teeth. Implant-supported dentures follow a similar process, with multiple implants placed strategically to support a denture. Abutments connect the implants to the denture, providing stability and improved chewing ability.
With implant-supported dentures or implant-supported bridges North Palm Beach patients can significantly enhance their quality of life by addressing the challenges many experience due to missing teeth. These treatments offer a range of benefits that can positively impact your oral health, confidence, and overall well-being. Our patients with implant supported bridges and dentures enjoy the ability to eat, speak and function comfortably without the concern of loose, missing or painful teeth. These results typically last decades and can be permanent in most cases.
Candidates should be interested in replacing multiple teeth and be in good overall health. Certain medical conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes or autoimmune disorders might affect healing and need to be taken into careful consideration by our doctors prior to undergoing either of these procedures. In addition, ideal candidates for these treatments should have sufficient jawbone structure to support the dental implants and younger patients must have a fully developed jawbone.
A thorough dental examination, including X-rays and scans, is the best way to determine a candidate's eligibility.
At Orange Dental Partners, we utilize a variety of cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment resources to create a comprehensive and customized treatment plan. Using advanced cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), we can collect a precise 3D image of the mouth to help us decide which treatment will be ideal for your unique dental needs.
Then, the implants will be placed, and a temporary denture will be used during the healing process, which takes about three to six months. Finally, custom-made, permanent dentures will be placed onto the abutments which are connected to the implants. While there may be some tenderness or discomfort after certain procedures, over-the-counter pain medication is usually sufficient.
Our team of dental professionals has decades of combined experience and offers the necessary expertise to ensure that our patients’ needs are met. Our primary goals are to provide premier patient care along with the most innovative solutions available for outstanding outcomes.
