What Are Implant Dentures?
While similar to traditional ones, implant dentures consist of artificial teeth that are directly anchored to your jawbone via dental implants. This means you won’t have to rely on your gum line but can enjoy the benefits of a more natural-feeling method for rebuilding your teeth. The titanium posts will also fuse with your bone tissue, resulting in an incredibly stable foundation for your dentures. Depending on your specific situation, our team may recommend one of the following options:
Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures
This implant denture is designed to remain in your mouth indefinitely—or until your dentist needs to remove and replace them. Since they’ll serve as your new permanent teeth, you won’t need to take them out for cleaning or soak them overnight.
Removable Implant Dentures
These are also called “snap-on dentures” as they can be removed whenever you choose. This option is often reserved for patients who can retrofit their existing traditional dentures to fit atop dental implants. Though you’ll need to take them out for cleaning, they often won’t need as much jawbone density for them to work.
The Implant Denture Process
During your initial consultation, we’ll evaluate your oral health, discuss your options, and determine which is best for you. Once we’ve decided on the type you’ll get, we’ll schedule you for dental implant surgery at a later date. After you’ve had your metal posts placed, you’ll be sent home to heal and have them undergo osseointegration for several months. When you’ve fully recovered, you’ll come back so we can design and construct your personalized dentures. Once they’re completed, we’ll make minor adjustments if necessary and confirm that the results are satisfactory before sending you on your way.
Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?
While most people who are missing some or all of their teeth may be eligible for implant dentures, this treatment is often best for patients who:
- Are frustrated with traditional dentures and want a more stable and long-lasting prosthetic
- Have sufficient jawbone density to support dental implants
- Have good oral and overall health for proper recovery
- Don’t use tobacco or drink alcohol excessively
Even if you aren’t currently eligible, we can help get your mouth ready with preliminary procedures like bone grafting or gum disease therapy.
