What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures offer many of the same benefits of traditional dentures. They consist of a plate made of acrylic or other materials, and artificial teeth made of porcelain, acrylic or another substance attached to the plate. Traditional dentures are held in place by wire frameworks or by dental adhesives. An implant denture, by contrast, is attached directly to implants that have been placed in the jaw and allowed to fuse with the bone structure. This provides significantly more stability and security by creating a permanent attachment between the false teeth and the jaw.
What’s the Process for Getting Implant-Supported Dentures??
Your implant-supported dentures are designed to provide permanent replacements for your natural teeth. The process generally consists of a few separate appointments and stages:
- During the preparatory stage, we will examine your teeth and your mouth to determine whether you are a good candidate for implant-supported dentures.
- Then, we will check to see if you have sufficient bone density in your jaw. After that, we will arrange for the extraction of any broken, damaged or decaying teeth. This can streamline the fabrication of your denture and will ensure you have time to heal before getting implants placed.
- Your implants will typically take between three and six months to heal in place and to become stable attachment points for your new dentures. During this time, your denture will be fabricated and prepared for application.
- Once the healing process has concluded, your denture or dentures will be permanently attached to the implants. Depending on the type of implant chosen, you may have a bar-retained or ball-retained connection between your implants and your dentures.
Our team will provide you with all the necessary information and support needed to help you throughout this process. We are committed to helping you achieve the best dental outcomes from your procedures.

How Do You Care for Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant dentures typically require regular brushing and flossing, the same treatment used to care for natural teeth. During the immediate aftermath of your implant procedure, your dentist may recommend the use of prescription or over-the-counter mouthwashes or careful brushing around the site of the implant. Once these dental appliances have healed in place, you can usually care for your teeth and gums in the normal way. After your dentures have been applied, we will provide you with instructions on cleaning, brushing and caring for your new replacement teeth.
