You never expected to lose all your teeth over the year, but that’s exactly what has happened. Whether from decay, disease, or injury, you’re among the 35 million Americans who have lost all their natural teeth. You can turn back the hands of time and regain a close replica of what you lost with implant-retained dentures. Dental implants will support your denture, so you’ll never need to worry about any slipping or irritation again. We will create the customized treatment plan you need to chew, speak, and smile confidently.

How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?

A traditional denture has been used for decades to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. An acrylic base is created from an impression of your mouth to offer a comfortable fit when held in place using suction or an adhesive. Over the years, traditional dentures have undergone many improvements to promote their function and aesthetics, but they will always have their limitations.

Dental implants resolve the common complaints of a traditional denture. Titanium posts are strategically placed into your jaw to secure your denture to your jawbone. They act as roots to closely mimic your natural teeth while producing a variety of benefits not possible using a conventional denture.

Am I a Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?

If you’ve lost all your teeth in one or both arches and a traditional prosthetic isn’t giving you the results you want, you might be a candidate for an implant-retained denture. Most patients can get dental implants if they have good oral and general health; however, you’ll still need a thorough consultation and a CT scan to assess your risk factors for implant failure. In some cases, the results of your examination might determine you need additional procedures before your placement surgery, like bone grafting.

The process of rebuilding your smile with an implant-retained denture will take several months because there are many steps involved to ensure the long-term success of the treatment. After you’ve healed from any previous procedures, your implant posts are surgically placed into your jaw.

Over the next several weeks, your jaw fuses to the posts through a process called osseointegration. Once your jaw has healed, abutments are placed on each post to connect your custom-made denture.

Stabilizing your denture with dental implants creates many advantages that can’t be matched, such as:
