If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your health and your appearance. Dentures make it easier to eat and speak, as opposed to doing so without any teeth. Ocoee Oral Surgery can be make your dentures to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile.
It is possible to make dentures that are screwed into place and only taken out by the dentist. The upside is that these dentures feel very much like natural teeth, reduces a lot of the bulk of traditional dentures, and allow you to eat and smile without worry or thinking about your false teeth. The downside to screw-retained dentures is that they are often difficult to clean and must be well taken care of at home. The benefit of using four to six implants in an arch and then making a hybrid denture to screw into the implants or an implant bar is that you can have a prosthesis that is firm in place but does not require the cost of individual teeth being replaced with individual implants and crowns. Permanent dentures can be a great option for a lot of patients who no longer want to feel like they wear dentures.
