Implant supported dentures are somewhere between the conventional denture that uses adhesive and the more expensive advanced full-arch dental implants. It’s a removable denture, and you’ll be able to snap it on and off as you please.
Implant supported dentures are a solution to fix those gaps in your smile and provide an extra level of comfort compared to traditional dentures. It’s an innovative new treatment, which is a revolutionary upgrade on dentures. Learn more about the topic and discover if you may be a candidate for them or are interested in speaking further with our team about moving forward with implant supported dentures.
Traditional dentures may move around more since they sit on top of the gums. Implant supported dentures don’t have this problem because the dental implants secure them. They remain in place at all times, and you can remove them when it’s time to clean them. The implants are permanent and will stay in your mouth. They not only look more natural, but you’ll find that it’s easier and less frustrating to eat and chew.
Dental implants can be used to replace one or several missing teeth. Each patient may have different needs and require different options regarding the implants. Dental implants are available in fixed or removable designs.
Fixed Options –
Fixed Implants are permanent replacements for replacing teeth, and they are not made to be removed. Examples of fixed dental implants include bridges, crowns and hybrid dentures.
Removable Options –
Dental implants can be used to anchor removable dental prosthetics. There are several options to cosmetically and medically fix your smile. Some of these options allow for removing the prosthetics/devices for easier cleaning or maintenance. Removable dentures and other devices can use dental implants for a firmer and stronger attachment inside the mouth.
With dental implants, you can experience full functionality and aesthetics again, able to speak, eat, and smile without hindrance.

You can smile with confidence when you choose implant supported dentures, and there are many benefits they offer, especially when compared to traditional dentures. Review the list below to see for yourself what this new innovation and upgrade can do for you.
You may be thinking this is all great and want to know how the treatment process works. Before any treatment starts, you’ll meet with our team for an initial consultation. We’ll examine your jaw bone and take x-rays to determine whether it is suitable for dental implants or not. It’s possible you’ll require bone grafting to prepare the area for the implants. If and when you decide to move forward with the procedure, we’ll take a mold of your teeth and mouth to ensure the right fit. We can fit the dental implants as soon as we have these impressions.
After allowing them to settle in, the dentures will be fitted on top so they’re secure but can also be removed for cleaning. Our experienced team of periodontists will be by your side along the way to explain the process in detail and answer your questions. Your treatment plan will be tailored to you. It’ll be a quick and seamless process, no matter if you’ve been with us a while or are a new patient.
You may want to consider implant supported dentures if your current and traditional dentures are uncomfortable and no longer serving their purpose. You may have missing teeth and are frustrated with your current solution. If you’ve been wearing traditional dentures for a long time then you may have degradation of the jawbone and it might make it more difficult to get a good fit. However, it doesn’t mean you still can’t move forward with implant supported dentures. You may be a candidate for a bone graft, which will solve the issue and prepare your mouth and teeth properly for the dental implants.
