Millions of Americans suffer from missing teeth. If your self-esteem and oral health are affected, you are not alone.
Patients in Tampa, FL, turn to Advanced Oral Surgery for life-changing restorative dentistry.
Our team can provide top-of-the-line implant-supported dentures to correct even the most extensive tooth loss.
What Is an Implant Denture?
Implant dentures are the gold standard in dental prosthetics, designed for patients with extensive or complete tooth loss. Unlike traditional dentures that rest on top of the gumline, implant dentures are permanently anchored to the jaw through small posts known as dental implants.
Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work Better?
Because your dentures will be firmly attached to your jaw, the possibility of them moving or becoming loose over time is virtually eliminated.
Full Chewing Strength
Dentures secured to implants restore your ability to bite and chew normally, allowing you to eat foods that would cause traditional dentures to shift out of place.
Retain Jawbone Tissue
When the titanium implants are surgically anchored into your jawbone, they provide stimulation to the surrounding tissue. This actually stops and reverses the bone atrophy that follows tooth loss.
You're Not Alone
Missing Teeth Are a Common Problem
According to the American College of Prosthodontists, approximately 40 million adults in the United States are missing all of their teeth. Thirty percent of adults between 65 and 74 have no natural teeth. You don't have to live with missing teeth — let our team provide you with dental implants and a denture.

I was there for an evaluation for implants, removing an old crown and bridge. The information provided was well detailed and with different options to consider in this process. Mia and Dr. Edwards were both very thorough and friendly. The facility was first rate and the equipment they use could not have been more up-to-date.View on Google

Maintaining Your Dentures
Maintain Oral Hygiene
Brush twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste. Floss daily; a floss threader or water pick can help clean around your implants and underneath your restoration.
Don't Misuse Your Teeth
Do not use your teeth to open packages or bite your nails. This can damage your dentures. It is also best to minimize or avoid sticky or hard foods, like ice or caramel, to protect your new smile.
Visit Your Dentist
Don't forget your regular dental checkups and cleanings. This will allow your dentist to catch any problems before they become worse and help you maintain your new dentures for years to come.
What's Wrong With Traditional Dentures?
Lack of Stability
Traditional complete and partial dentures are removable, meaning they are not permanently secured in your mouth. Full dentures, used when every tooth is missing, are designed to fit tightly against your gums while partial dentures, which replace a few consecutive missing teeth, use wire frameworks and metal clasps that attach to nearby teeth. Dental adhesive is sometimes needed to keep your full or partial dentures in place, but they remain prone to slipping out of place when you chew or speak.
Weak Chewing Strength
Traditional dentures are not permanently secured to your jawbone, so they only give you a fraction of the chewing function you actually need to eat healthy foods. In other words, biting into hard foods can dislodge your dentures or literally pull them out.
When you lose a tooth, the bone tissue that held it in place will shrink. Dentures cannot stop this dental issue from getting worse. Bone shrinkage associated with several missing teeth can eventually cause your face to look sunken and aged.
