For centuries, traditional methods for replacing teeth have helped restore function and appearance to patients with gaps in their smile. In recent years, however, implant-supported dentures have become increasingly popular because of their ability to replace the entire tooth, from root to crown.
At Sutton Dentistry, Dr. Larry Sutton and our dedicated team offer both traditional and implant-supported dentures for our Ocala patients looking to restore their smile. Contact us today if you would like to learn more about your options.
Preparing You for Dentures
When our patients choose implant-supported dentures as their tooth replacement option, we can perform all parts of the procedure right in our office. We first conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the precise issue affecting your oral health. Once it’s determined that implant dentures are the appropriate treatment option, we determine if there is enough jaw bone volume to support the implant posts. We may recommend a bone grafting procedure for those lacking sufficient bone so the titanium posts can fuse properly.
If patients see us in need of extraction, we can remove the troubled teeth and allow proper time for healing before proceeding with the implant placement. For those needing a full arch replacement, we offer All-on-Four® by Nobel Biocare so patients can experience the closest replication to their natural teeth.
The all-on-four concept is an efficient way to replace a full arch of teeth. The process involves surgically placing four titanium posts in the jaw to support the prosthetic. Unlike single implants, the two back posts in this procedure are angled to provide comprehensive support.
Complete Restorative Services Under One Roof
For patient convenience, we work with a mobile lab that comes to our office to assist with the placement process. With this advanced technology at our disposal, we are able to place the four implant posts with precision. After allowing time for proper healing, we secure your dentures to the posts.
Before the end of the appointment, we ensure your restoration fits comfortably and functions properly. We provide patients with post care instructions so they can maintain their renewed look for years to come.
