What Are Implant Dentures?

Traditional dentures either sit on your gums or are attached to your remaining natural teeth via metal clasps. Meanwhile, implant dentures are anchored to implant posts that have been surgically placed in the jawbone. What makes dental implants unique is that they can act as replacement tooth roots, allowing your new teeth to function similarly to your natural ones. Implant dentures are either fixed in place or designed to be removable depending on your needs.

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

Fixed dentures are sometimes called a “hybrid prosthesis”. They will normally stay attached to your implants 24/7; they can only be removed by a trained dental expert. Many patients prefer fixed dentures since they can be brushed as if they were natural teeth. However, a certain level of jawbone density is required for this type of denture.

Removable Implant Dentures

Sometimes called “Snap-On dentures”, a removable denture is attached to implant posts via clips or ball sockets. You’ll be able to remove them as necessary, such as when you need to clean them. One of the advantages of removable implant dentures is that they require fewer implants, which often makes them a more viable option for patients with lower jawbone density.

The Implant Denture Process

We’ll examine your mouth and take pictures of your jawbone to confirm that you’re eligible for implant surgery. Bone grafting and other preliminary treatments might be necessary depending on the state of your oral health. Once the necessary preparations have been made, the implant posts can be placed in your jaw via minor surgery.

It will take about 3 to 6 months for your implants to fuse with your jawbone. Then, an abutment will be attached to each implant post. Once the mouth has fully healed, we can take impressions to design a full or partial denture. The abutments will be used to attach your final restoration to the implant posts and complete your smile.

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?

During your consultation, we’ll review your needs with you and help you figure out whether implant dentures are truly the best choice for restoring your smile.

Benefits of Combining Dentures & Dental Implants

While traditional dentures can sometimes slip at awkward times, implant dentures are much more stable due to being attached to the jaw. This makes it easier to enjoy steak, corn on the cob, and a wide variety of other foods. Furthermore, dental implants directly stimulate your jaw to prevent bone loss, meaning you don’t have to worry about your dentures losing their fit over time.
