What are Implant Dentures?
Implant 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 to 6 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.
At your consultation, we’ll discuss your options for your implant denture, which include the following:
Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures
A fixed implant denture is not meant to be removed by anyone but the dentist themselves. To keep the denture secure, we use roughly 4 to 6 dental implants. While this option is ideal for those who would prefer to move away from the traditional denture maintenance they are used to, you will need sufficient bone tissue.
Removable Implant Dentures
Also known as “Snap-On” dentures, this option is ideal for those who may not have as much bone tissue available for several implants throughout the mouth. To stays secure, they attach to either a bar-retained or ball-retained design placed inside the mouth ahead of the restoration. Typically, this option requires just 2 to 5 implants to place, but you will need to remove it for cleaning at home.
The Implant Denture 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 dental office for a final time, where we will ensure you’re happy with your results before permanently mounting your dentures.
Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?
The best way to know if you’re a candidate for implant dentures is to visit our dental 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 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 dentures, which allow you to enjoy this replacement option.
Benefits of Combining Dentures & Dental Implants
We offer implant 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.
