If you are missing a significant number of teeth, you could benefit from the dentures available at our Ocala, FL, practice. At Ocala Dental Care, we offer both traditional and implant-retained prosthetics to restore your appearance, oral function, and self-confidence. At our practice, we can place dental implants and attach your denture all in one convenient location thanks to our on-site lab that also enables us to provide same-day dentures. Your dentist can help evaluate your cosmetic goals, oral health, and budget to determine the right type of prosthetic for you. We work hard to provide many options for our patients by offering various types of implants, advanced restorative materials, and affordable financing to help restore your smile.
Traditional dentures are the most conservative and affordable option to replace missing teeth. These restorations come in two sizes: full and partial. A full set of dentures will fit across your entire alveolar ridge to replace all of the teeth in your upper or lower arch. A partial denture can replace many—but not all—of your teeth. It attaches to your remaining teeth with small, virtually undetectable clasps. Both types of dentures have a plastic base that will remain secure with a combination of suction and denture adhesive.
Implant-retained dentures are also available as full and partial prosthetics. Although they perform the same functions as traditional dentures, they are much more stable because the dental implants replace your tooth roots. Dental implants also prevent bone loss and jawbone recession, common problems that can dramatically affect your appearance and your oral health after tooth loss. Thus, an implant-retained denture can preserve your youthful profile and the natural proportions of your face.
Drs. DeLeon and Woo are our implant specialist and they can place any type of implants, including traditional and mini implants. Before your implant surgery, your doctor will conduct a thorough consultation to evaluate the state of your oral health and determine if you require any preparatory procedures such as a bone graft or a sinus lift. These procedures are necessary for patients who may have compromised jawbone tissue as a means to create a secure base for the implant posts. We also proudly offers the LOCATOR® Overdenture Implant (LODI) System. This method uses very small implant posts, so it may be a good option if you have a recessed or naturally narrow dental ridge. In fact, with the LODI system, Drs. DeLeon and Woo can often place implants without bone grafting. This system is also a more economical option for fixed full or partial dentures.
At Ocala Dental Care, we offer both traditional and implant-retained prosthetics to restore your appearance, oral function, and self-confidence.

We have a fully functional on-site lab that allows us to perform same-day dentistry.

Immediately loading implants following dental implant placement is also a possibility, especially when we utilize the LODI system.
At Ocala Dental Care, we work hard to provide incredibly realistic dentures. We use 3-D imaging to ensure a precise and comfortable fit, we never use cheap, low-quality materials; and our dentures cost significantly less than the prosthetics offered at other area practices.
