Implant-Supported Bridges: The Dentures Alternative
Losing a full arch of teeth leaves you without a smile. Often, people will look to removable dentures to fill the gaps. But dentures can be detrimental to your health. By whittling down your jawbone, moving around while you speak, and even bruising your gums, they’re not the most comfortable or even effective option.
The team at New Creation Dental Care has an excellent alternative. Dr. Matt Boscia is a dental implant specialist and has the solution to missing teeth.
With implant-supported bridges and snap-in dentures, Dr. Boscia can transform your gapped smile into a gorgeous, fully functional set of sparkling, secure teeth — permanently.
Comparing Full-Arch Replacement Options
We offer a range of options for full-arch restorations at New Creation Dental Care.
Implant-supported dentures are known for being the most comfortable solution to tooth loss. Dr. Boscia will craft a full denture, fully customized for you, and secure it with four or more dental implants.
You won’t need an implant for every missing tooth. Instead, effectively placed implants will anchor a full restoration and provide you with a full set of strong, permanent teeth.
It depends on your individual situation, but Dr. Boscia often recommends your restorations to be placed on five or six individual implants.
Similar to implant-supported bridges, snap-in dentures provide the convenience of removable dentures combined with the security of implant-supported dentures. Again, with expertly placed implants, you can receive a full restoration and enjoy a fully functional smile.
Traditional dentures will whittle down your jawbone and decrease your bone density. This will eventually lead to facial sagging and less function for things like eating and even speaking.
The implants Dr. Boscia places in your jaw will guarantee it stays strong for years to come. So you can continue to live a healthy life, free from the restrictions of dentures.
Benefits of Full Arch Dental Implants
Both of our solutions take great advantage over traditional dentures. Replacing your smile with dental implant solutions has many benefits, including:
- Easy To Clean – As supposed to traditional dentures, our solutions can be treated like your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing and going to checkups like normal will ensure your restorations will last. Traditional dentures need creams, special cleaning routines and more to stay in shape.
- Comfortable – Traditional dentures rest on your bare gums and can cause irritation. With our dental implant-secured dentures, you can enjoy a comfortable fit that doesn’t pinch or shift around your gums.
- Stable – Smile, speak, and eat without restraint. With dental implants, you won’t have to worry about your dentures falling out as you eat. Your full-arch restoration will act as your natural smile and will be 100 percent functional.
- Stimulates Jawbone Growth – Traditional dentures don’t allow your bone to get the stimulation it needs to stay strong. Implant-supported solutions will keep your teeth from shifting or deteriorating.
