Woman with implant-supported denturesYou’re familiar with conventional dentures, but their implant-supported counterparts? Not so much. Our Aurora dentists are here to bring you up to speed. We’re answering the top questions about this modern tooth replacement option below.

What Foods Should I Avoid with Implant-Supported Dentures?

An advantage of implant-supported dentures is that you can eat almost anything you want! They can handle hard-to-chew food like steak and crunchy snacks like raw vegetables. 

If you have a different type of denture, you may need to be pickier about what goes on your plate. Certain foods can dislodge your restorations or put too much pressure on your gums. And everyone should consider cutting out popcorn kernels, hard candies, and other foods known to damage natural teeth and dentures alike.

How Long Do Implant-Supported Dentures Last?

Implant-supported dentures are made of different pieces with different lifespans. The titanium dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Meanwhile, the dentures themselves can be created from acrylic, porcelain, or other modern materials.

We take great pride in providing dentures that fit great and look great. Made with the latest materials and advanced craftsmanship, they can last for many years before needing repairs or replacement.

What Should I Expect at My Implant-Supported Denture Consultation?

At Aspenwood Dental Associates and Colorado Dental Implant Center, we take a comprehensive approach to dental care. Your denture consultation starts with an unhurried conversation with one of our dentists. We’ll listen to your concerns and take the time to understand your unique situation. 

From there, we’ll collect the necessary data about your smile. We use cutting-edge technology such as a cone beam CT scanner for better accuracy and comfort.

Our dentists will then walk you through your tooth replacement options and any alternatives. You may decide together that implant-supported dentures are the best way to restore your smile. If that’s the case, our team will start designing your custom treatment plan.
