What Are Implant Dentures?

Traditional dentures sit on your gums and are held in place with natural suction. Implant dentures, on the other hand, are anchored directly to your jawbone thanks to several strategically placed dental implant posts. Dental implants mimic the roots of your natural teeth, which helps make your new smile much more lifelike and comfortable. There are two types of implant dentures that we might suggest based on your needs:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

A fixed denture is sometimes referred to as a “hybrid prosthesis.” Only a dentist can remove a fixed denture; otherwise, it stays in your mouth 24/7. Many patients prefer fixed dentures since they can be brushed and flossed like natural teeth. However, keep in mind that for this type of denture, a certain level of jawbone density is required.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures – or “Snap-On dentures” as they’re sometimes called – are designed in a way that lets you take them out of your mouth for regular cleanings. The main advantage of removable implant dentures is that they typically require fewer implant posts (sometimes as little as two) and thus don’t require as much jawbone density as fixed dentures.

The Implant Denture Process

Our team can perform the entire dental implant procedure in-house so that you don’t have to worry about driving to a separate specialist’s office. The process begins with an initial consultation where we confirm that you’re a candidate for dental implant surgery and take note of any preparations that need to be made before the procedure. Once your mouth is ready, we can perform minor surgery to insert a specific number of implant posts into your jaw.

It will take about 3 to 6 months for your jaw to bond with your dental implant posts. Once that’s done, we can attach a small metal connector piece called an abutment to each post. After your mouth has fully healed, we can take impressions and start designing your final denture, which will be made at a separate laboratory. During your last appointment, your new teeth will be attached to your implants via the abutments.

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?

You may be a good candidate for implant dentures if:

  • You have lost all or most of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw.
  • You are in good oral health overall.
  • You don’t have any health problems that would prevent you from having surgery performed.
  • You have enough jawbone density to support dental implant posts (or are willing to undergo bone grafting if you’ve already experienced bone loss in your jaw).

Benefits of Combining Dentures & Dental Implants

Why choose implant dentures over traditional dentures? There are several benefits to consider:

  • Your new teeth will have enough strength and stability to handle any food.
  • You won’t have to worry about your dentures slipping when you’re speaking in front of others.
  • Having lifelike new teeth can help you feel more confident about your appearance.
  • The stimulation from the implants will help stop bone loss in your jaw, letting you maintain a more youthful facial structure.
