Implant-supported dentures are restorations attached to implants in the jawbone for added support and long-lasting durability. If you struggle with multiple missing teeth, implant-supported dentures may be the best option for your needs. Our prosthodontists can meet with you and examine your smile to help provide you with a proper plan of treatment. For a patient with existing dentures, we can have their mouth fitted with implants to improve function in their smile.
Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are stabilized by dental implants to keep your dentures from moving out of place and disrupting your ability to speak and eat properly. In order to be best prepared for receiving a dental implant, patients should have healthy gums, good dental hygiene and a strong jawbone. Our prosthodontists can assist you in preparing for your procedure by providing you with treatment to help get your oral health back in top condition. During the first portion of your dental implant procedure, our prosthodontists will anchor your denture with implants by surgically inserting the implants into your jawbone. Commonly, a patient may require four to six implants for each denture. Once these implants have been placed and the recovery time is completed, we can attach your dentures to the top of your implants.
