If you have lost multiple teeth, implant-supported dentures could be the solution for you! Our dentist can provide implant-supported dentures to give you a highly stable and long-lasting solution for your oral health and smile. While similar in appearance to traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are anchored and stabilized using dental implants. This prevents the dentures from coming loose and “floating” in the mouth and gives you the ability to eat and speak with confidence. The implants used in your treatment also take the place of the tooth roots, working to stimulate your supporting jawbone so that it can remain healthy and strong.
When you receive implant-supported dentures, you will need to plan on having several appointments to complete your treatment. The first step of your treatment is the implant placement procedure, during which your implant posts will be surgically inserted into your jawbone. Most cases require a minimum of four implants, though you may receive as many as eight implants depending on your individual needs. Once your implants have been placed and integrated with your supporting bone, our dentist will place and attach your denture to complete your treatment.
Implant-supported dentures are often recommended as a cost-effective alternative to single-tooth implants and traditional dentures. In many cases, our dentist can even retrofit an existing denture with implants.
