What are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures can replace several to all of your teeth. These restorations are composed of two main pieces: a dental implant, and a prosthetic. The implant will replace your lost tooth root and act as the foundation for your fixed or removable denture. Your implant-supported dentures can be customized by our team to match the rest of your teeth for a cohesive, aesthetically pleasing smile. Depending on your preferences, your denture can be made from a variety of durable materials, including plastic and porcelain, for a lifelike look and feel.

For the right candidates, implant-supported dentures provide a secure, long-lasting alternative to traditional dentures.

Traditional vs. Implant-Supported Dentures

While implant-supported dentures offer many of the same benefits as traditional dentures, they provide unparalleled security and improved oral health. After tooth loss, the jawbone naturally begins to recede. However, dental implants stimulate the jawbone and promote tissue regrowth, preventing further bone deterioration. Implant-supported dentures become a part of your natural anatomy, providing unmatched aesthetic and functional performance. As such, these restorations will never slip or shift like their removable counterparts.

Treatment for Implant Supported Dentures

Depending upon your dental needs, you may need to undergo preparatory restorative or periodontal treatments before receiving dental implants. If you have insufficient jawbone tissue to support implants, we may recommend a preliminary sinus lift or bone graft for the best results. During your consultation, our team will evaluate your particular dental needs to determine the best course of action. He may also request x-rays or advanced images of your smile, which can help him plan your implant placement strategy.

To ensure a secure foundation, dental implants will be placed prior to your dentures. To begin, your doctor will create a small incision in the gum and create space in the jawbone for your implant post. Once the post is in place, We will close the incision with sutures. Our team will provide you with a temporary denture to wear while your jaw heals. Typically, the entire dental implant process will span over about two and a half months.

Our highly-trained team can help you achieve your aesthetic goals and dental needs, restoring full function to your smile.

Once the post has fused properly, you will have a follow-up appointment with our team, during which we can attach abutments. These devices will connect your dentures to the implant posts. Once your gums have healed sufficiently, which can take about two weeks, we can provide your permanent, customized restoration.
