How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?
Implant-retained dentures combine the advantages of dental implants and dentures to give you a strong and natural looking set of teeth. We can surgically place an average of 4 dental implants in your jaw, which will support your custom-made denture. After your dental implants have healed during a process called osseointegration, we will attach abutments that allow us to mount your denture. The result is a sturdy and stable smile that lets you eat, grin, and speak with ease.
Am I A Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?
The best way to know if you’re a candidate for implant-retained dentures is to visit our office for a consultation. One of our experts will carefully examine your oral health, missing teeth, and any preexisting issues in your mouth. From there, we can make the best recommendation based on your needs with a personalized treatment plan. Candidates for implant-retained dentures are typically those who are missing all or most of their teeth but still have enough jawbone volume to accommodate dental implants. In some cases, we may recommend bone grafting or other treatments before implant-retained dentures, which allow you to enjoy this replacement option.
The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure
After your consultation and treatment of any preexisting issues, you’ll come in for your implant surgery. We will make small incisions in your gums before creating tiny holes for the placement of your implants. Once placed, you’ll begin a healing period that will last at least 3 to 4 months. After, we will attach small connectors called abutments and take impressions of your new smile. These impressions are used to custom make your dentures. Once made, you’ll visit our office for a final time, where we will ensure you’re happy with your results before permanently mounting your dentures.
Benefits Of Combining Dentures & Dental Implants
We offer implant-retained dentures because of these unique advantages:
- Confidence: Feel confident to smile and speak in any setting!
- Strength: Chew through all of your favorite foods with a strong set of teeth.
- Health: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone to prevent it from deteriorating after tooth loss.
- Longevity: The dental implants themselves can last for a lifetime with proper care.
