What are Implant Dentures?

Unlike the traditional variety of dentures, which relies on suction to remain in place, implant dentures are firmly attached to dental implants that are embedded in the jawbone instead of simply resting on top of the gums. If you are considering implant dentures, you have two choices to pick from for your replacement teeth: fixed or removable.

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

Anyone who has gone without secure teeth knows the unsettling feeling of traditional dentures, but permanent implant dentures don’t budge at all and can only be removed by a dentist. As a result, you can have much more confidence in your ability to eat and talk in front of others.

Removable Implant Dentures

Although removable implant dentures tend to last just as long as fixed ones, these can be “snapped” in and out of your mouth. Some patients prefer this because they have become accustomed to taking out their dentures for cleaning or other purposes. If this is the way you want to go, just let us know!

The Implant Denture Procedure

Getting implant dentures is much like getting any other kind of dental implant, except it’s for all of your teeth. It starts with a consultation, where we will make sure your mouth is prepared for the procedure and create a detailed plan. Then, we surgically position four to six implants in the jawbone, allowing them to become integrated for several months afterward in a process called osseointegration. When this is complete, we attach the abutments or connection pieces, which stick up above the gumline. At this point, we’ll take impressions of your mouth and have your custom implant dentures fabricated and eventually bonded or snapped into place.

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentures?

The good news is that most patients qualify for implant dentures. The only requirements are that you have a healthy mouth (meaning you have no oral infections), that you have enough jawbone density, and that you are missing all your natural teeth. If, however, you do not meet these criteria, we can arrange for treatment that can get you in a better position for implant dentures.

Plus, the peace of mind that a secure smile offers is something you truly can’t put a price on.
