Screw-retained Implant Supported Dentures
At Gomez Family Dentistry, Drs. Gina and Christopher Gomez of Pensacola, Florida, have a wide range of dental solutions available at their state-of-the-art dental facility. In addition to general and preventative dentistry services, they also offer restoration of the smile with screw-retained implant-supported dentures for those missing all of the teeth in the dental arch.
What are screw-retained implant-supported dentures?
Screw-retained implant-supported dentures are a type of restoration that combine the stability and comfort of traditional dentures with the function provided by dental implants.
What are the benefits of these screw-retained dentures?
Screw-retained implant-supported dentures provide greater stability than traditional dentures because they use titanium screws to secure them to the implants. This reduces movement, improving overall functionality and providing more natural-looking teeth. Additionally, these implant-supported prosthetics only need to be removed one time per year by the dentist for cleaning and maintenance unlike regular dentures. These appliances and their implant abutments are able to be cleaned adequately without having to remove the entire appliance on a daily basis.
How long will my dentures last?
With proper care and professional cleaning visits, screw-retained implant-supported dentures can last up to 10 years or longer. The denture may need to be replaced, but the implants will often remain for life when patients take proper care of the teeth and gums.
Am I a candidate for screw-retained implant-supported dentures?
Drs. Gina and Christopher Gomez of Gomez Family Dentistry will evaluate patients to determine if they are a good fit for this or other dental replacement options available at their Pensacola, Florida, area office. During the evaluation, the team may take a series of 3D and digital dental X-rays to examine the underlying jawbone and tooth structures to find if the implants placed will be successful and retained. Patients can also talk to our team about alternative options so they can make an educated choice to choose the most appropriate option for their unique dental needs.
