Understanding Dental Implant-Supported Dentures

What Are Dental Implant-Supported Dentures?

Dental implant-supported dentures are a modern and advanced solution for individuals who have lost multiple teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, which rely on adhesives or suction for stability, implant-supported dentures are anchored securely to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone.

The Dental Implant Procedure

  1. Consultation and Planning: Before the procedure, our experienced dental team will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and create a customized treatment plan.
  2. Implant Placement: Small titanium posts, known as implants, are strategically placed in the jawbone. These serve as artificial tooth roots to support the dentures.
  3. Osseointegration: Over a few months, the implants fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, ensuring a strong and durable foundation.

Types of Dental Implant-Supported Dentures

Fixed Dentures: Also known as implant-supported fixed bridges, these dentures are securely attached to the implants and can only be removed by a dentist. They offer excellent stability and a natural feel.

Removable Dentures: These implant-supported dentures can be taken out by the wearer for cleaning and maintenance. They still provide enhanced stability compared to traditional removable dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implant-Supported Dentures

Enhanced Stability: Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures stay securely in place, allowing you to eat, speak, and laugh with confidence.

Preservation of Jawbone: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.

Natural Look and Feel: The result is a smile that looks and feels natural, improving both aesthetics and function.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Regular Check-ups: Our dental team will monitor your oral health and the condition of your implant-supported dentures.

Good Oral Hygiene: Maintaining proper oral hygiene is crucial to ensure the longevity of your implant-supported dentures.

Cost Considerations and Insurance

We understand that cost is an important factor. The cost of implant-supported dentures can vary based on several factors, including the number of dental implants needed, the type of dentures chosen, and the complexity of the case. During your consultation, we’ll discuss financial options and check your insurance coverage to make the process as smooth as possible.
