What’s apt for you: Implants or Dentures?


Traditional dentures are an affordable option for replacing missing teeth and have been successfully doing so for decades. However, they do pose certain limitations that leave patients in search of better alternatives. Many times, implant supported dentures are the most advantageous solution for these patients and are quickly becoming the standard of care for those with a full arch of missing or failing teeth. The advantages of implant supported dentures in Venice, FL, go further than simply improving smile aesthetics. Because implant supported dentures rely on dental implants, they provide a level of stability and strength that traditional dentures cannot reach. Dental implants make it possible for patients to choose a permanently fixed solution, while enjoying the cosmetic advantages of traditional dentures.

  • HEALTH: Implant supported dentures rely on anywhere from two to eight dental implants to support a prosthesis. Dental implants replace tooth roots, mimicking their stimulation to prevent bone loss on the jaw. This keeps the jaw bone from losing density and shrinking, preserving facial shape and bone strength. Dentures only rest on the gums and oftentimes accelerate the bone resorption process that occurs after tooth loss.
  • FUNCTION: Dental implants surgically placed into the jaw are as strong and sturdy as healthy tooth roots. They provide a stable foundation for dentures to snap securely onto. Dentures replace only 10 percent of natural chewing power. Dental implants can restore virtually 100 percent of natural biting and chewing power.
  • BEAUTY: Implant supported dentures present aesthetic qualities comparable to natural teeth. They fit comfortably within the natural contours of your mouth and remain in the most ideal position on the dental implants without the need for pastes or adhesives. Implant supported dentures are also cared for just like natural teeth.


The success of implant supported dentures is directly related to the accuracy of dental implant placement. This is why we incorporate advanced dental technology like cone beam CT scanning and guided implant surgery. The diagnostics and 3D digital planning remove virtually all room for human error, vastly improving the precision during surgery and final treatment outcomes. A leader in implant dentistry, Dr. Steven Feldman has been placing dental implants since 1987 and holds diplomate status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. He has placed over 25,000 dental implants and has decades of experience restoring patients’ smiles with implant supported dentures in Venice, FL.
