Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are overdentures attached to and supported by dental implants. Dental implants are surgical component(s) that connect a dental prosthesis to the bone of the skull or jaw.

Implant-supported dentures are recommended for patients with missing teeth or who are frustrated with traditional dentures.

This could happen because of issues such as frequent shifting, slipping, discomfort, or having to modify your diet.

There are different implant-supported dentures, including all-on-4, all-on-6, dental bridges, or single implants. Determining which type is right for you will depend on your needs and the severity of tooth loss.

Candidates For Implant Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a good option for any patient missing a tooth or several teeth. Patients having additional health issues may not be viable candidates for this surgery. Additionally, patients who do not have a sufficient jawbone mass may require a bone graft procedure to support denture implants.

There are many immediate and long-term benefits you will enjoy with implant-supported dentures, including:

  • Feel and function like natural teeth
  • Bone structure integrity
  • Keep adjacent teeth healthy
  • Less discomfort and maintenance than dentures
  • Evenly distribute bite forces
  • Easier to speak compared to bulky dentures
  • Prevent additional bone loss, which can create an aged appearance.

Implant-Supported Dentures Process

To see if implant-supported dentures are right for you, schedule an initial consultation where we will examine your oral health, review your medical history, take scans and x-rays, and see what treatment options are best suited to your needs. Next, we will examine your jawbone to ensure an adequate amount of bone to hold a dental implant in place.

If you are a good candidate for implant-supported dentures, we will schedule an appointment to install titanium posts into the areas of your jawbone where the dentures will adhere.

Before placing these rods, you will be given a local anesthetic. The type of anesthesia may vary, depending on the severity of your case and overall sensitivity. Once you are numbed, the posts are placed. After this, you should plan on at least three to four months of healing, allowing the posts to integrate fully with the jawbone.

During this period, you will be given a set of temporary dentures. Once the posts have been fully integrated, you will return for your final visit, when we will place your permanent dentures.

Aftercare For Implant-Supported Dentures

Immediately after your implant support denture procedure, avoid hot or cold beverages and physical activity to maximize the benefits and longevity of this procedure.

It is critical to practice good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing at least once daily, ideally every time you brush your teeth. It is also essential to practice proper brushing and flossing techniques.

In addition to practicing consistent oral self-care, it’s important to schedule regular checkups every six months. By maintaining a consistent oral health care routine, you will lower your risk of developing additional periodontal issues and will continue to have a healthy smile for years to come.

Implant-Supported Investment Care

A range of factors can impact the final cost of all-on-4 dental implants, such as the severity of your case, any associated procedures needed before or along with treatment, and your insurance plan.

Our team is committed to helping you complete necessary paperwork, schedule appointments, and answer any questions you have concerning billing. For patients who have insurance plans, we request you submit medical/dental insurance information with your New Patient Paperwork to expedite this process.

Please note: to reduce dental implant costs to our patients while still ensuring that we can provide the highest level of care, we have the following financial policies:

  • We accept Discover, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express
  • Full payment is due after services are rendered
  • Payment plan options are available via www.CareCredit.com

I came here to take my wisdom teeth taken out. On the day of the procedure, the nurses were very welcoming. The doctor was also very careful and was very nice to talk to. I just came back from my post 2 week checkup surgery and I got to meet more of the amazing staff.
