Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) December 05, 2014
Drs. Richard Chace, Rodney Horvat and Scott Cohen are now accepting new patients for a more secure and durable alternative to dentures in the form of implant supported dentures. These dentures can help people in Winter Park, FL avoid many of the adverse effects associated with missing teeth, such as bone density loss and dietary restrictions. Like natural teeth, implants are anchored in the alveolar bone, which ensures that the attached dentures offer a stable, long-term solution.
While unanchored dentures offer many benefits, they also have limitations. Since unsecured dentures do not stimulate the alveolar bone, people who wear dentures experience gradual bone density deterioration. This deterioration can make frequent denture refitting necessary, and if bone density loss becomes severe, dentures may no longer be a suitable solution. Implant supported dentures prevent this problem because implants provide stimulation necessary for bone health. This ensures that implants provide a permanent solution. Besides stabilizing bone density levels, implants allow people to speak and eat without fear of their dental prosthetics slipping or coming loose.
Implant supported dentures are a suitable solution for many people with missing teeth in Winter Park, FL. Drs. Chace, Horvat and Cohen offer dentures that rely on just four implants that can be placed wherever bone density is greatest. This reduces the likelihood that a patient will require a bone graft to be eligible for an implant supported denture. Drs. Chace, Horvat and Cohen offer patients both bar-retained and ball-retained dentures. Bar-retained dentures attach to a metal bar that runs between the implants, while ball-retained dentures snap into place with a ball-and-socket design. Drs. Chace, Horvat and Cohen can help patients determine which option is best suited for their individual needs.
Drs. Chace, Horvat and Cohen encourage people with missing teeth in Winter Park, FL, to be proactive in learning about their options. Although implant supported dentures make the best use of each person’s existing bone density, people with reduced bone density may be poor candidates for the procedure without a bone graft. Patients with missing teeth are encouraged to schedule a consultation about implant supported dentures and other potential solutions by calling the doctors’ office or visiting their website.
