What are implant-supported dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are prosthetic teeth replacements that are permanently anchored to titanium dental implants placed in the jawbone. They provide a strong, secure fit so your dentures won’t slip and slide around in your mouth. They also help to keep your jaw bone strong and healthy, which prevents bone loss and loss of facial structure.
To get implant-supported dentures, you must first see our dentist for a consultation. During the consultation, we will examine your mouth and determine if you’re a good candidate for having dental implant-supported dentures. Then, we’ll develop a treatment plan to suit your needs.
The first step in the process is to place the artificial tooth roots into the jawbone. This is done via oral surgery. After the implants are placed, you may receive temporary dentures while the implants heal. They will need several months of healing time before the permanent dentures can be placed.
Once your implant site has healed, you can get your permanent dentures! We will take impressions of your teeth and use them to create custom-fitted dentures that are comfortable and secure. The dentures will then be attached to the implants, and you’ll leave with a strong, healthy, and natural-looking smile.

If you take care of them properly, implant-supported dentures can last for many years.
