Winter Haven, FL (PRWEB) March 29, 2016
Patients with missing teeth in Winter Haven, FL, can now receive dental implants from Dr. Frederick Thurston at his Auburndale, FL practice. Implant supported dentures make it possible for patients to receive a full arch restoration prosthesis that is anchored in place with implants. This treatment option is a good solution for those who have multiple missing teeth.
Advanced gum disease is the most common cause of missing teeth but injury, genetics, and other factors can also lead to tooth loss. When individuals lose multiple teeth, they may have a more difficult time speaking and eating. They may also experience loss of self-esteem because of their altered appearance. Those who promptly replace their lost teeth are more likely to maintain their confidence and quality of life. When patients lose several of their teeth or need to replace an entire arch, implant supported dentures may be an ideal treatment option. Although single implants are a great tooth replacement option when only a few teeth are missing, implant supported dentures provide several unique benefits for patients who have many missing teeth.
Implant supported dentures combine the affordability and convenience of traditional dentures with the reliability and comfort of dental implants. Dr. Thurston carefully places titanium implants before attaching an arch that provides a functional and natural-looking smile. This procedure is often a viable alternative for individuals who are not ideal candidates for regular implants because of insufficient bone density. Patients who may need bone grafts before receiving traditional implants may be able to receive implant supported dentures without undergoing gum grafting procedures.
Dr. Thurston invites new patients with missing teeth in Winter Haven, FL, to schedule an appointment at his Auburndale, FL, practice. After a thorough examination, Dr. Thurston may recommend treatment with implant supported dentures.
