Implant Supported Dentures: Smile Confidently

Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums, implant-supported dentures are anchored by dental implants. A few implants are placed in the jaw, onto which the denture can snap or clip on. This provides more stability than traditional dentures, ensuring that the denture remains both stable and secure.

Everyone deserves to chew and enjoy their food in peace. Implant supported dentures can be a safe and effective choice for adults with missing teeth to preserve the overall structure and aesthetic of their mouth. Get started with Dr. Atcha, below.

The Perfect Middle Ground

Implant-supported dentures are a medium between the conventional denture that uses adhesive and the more expensive, advanced full-arch dental implants. Implant-supported dentures use titanium posts to support full dentures, using the bone structure to have the denture sit directly on the gums. Implant dentures performed under Dr. Atcha can replace entire sets of missing teeth to bring back a beautiful smile.

What are implant supported dentures?

An implant-supported denture is an overdenture resting directly on your gums and is supported and retained by implants in your upper or lower jaw. The overdenture is a removable set of artificial teeth and gums, which help restore the function and appearance of your smile.

The implant-supported dentures are more stable than a regular denture, so you won’t have to worry about the denture falling out of your mouth.

There are a variety of reasons why implant-supported dentures are beneficial, such as they:

  • Improve the aesthetics of your smile

  • Allow you to eat harder foods

  • Improve your ability to speak

  • Restore your confidence

  • Help prevent bone loss

  • Do not need traditional denture adhesives

In addition to the benefits stated above, implant-supported dentures are a great solution to replace teeth if you’re experiencing pain or have rotted roots.

How long do implant-supported dentures last?

The lifespan of implant-supported dentures can vary depending on several factors, including the individual’s oral health, oral hygiene practices, lifestyle, and the quality of the dental implants used. When properly cared for and maintained, implant-supported dentures have the potential to last for many years. However, it’s important to note that the longevity of the dentures may be influenced by factors such as normal wear and tear, changes in oral health, and the need for occasional adjustments or repairs.

The Process for Implant Supported Dentures

Multiple office visits are required throughout the process of getting implant-supported dentures. To begin the process, Dr. Atcha and his staff take impressions of your mouth along with extracting any teeth, if necessary. Dr. Atcha uses these impressions to help create your dentures.

Success Begins Here

The next phase involves Dr. Atcha using local anesthetic around the incision sites to ensure your comfort. He then makes a tiny incision in your gum pocket, inserts a titanium screw into the jaw bone, and stitches up your gums. He repeats this part of the process multiple times because anywhere from five to eight implants may be necessary to support a full denture.

Post-Op Care

To ensure your implant-supported dentures last as long as possible, Dr. Atcha suggests taking care of them just like regular teeth through flossing and brushing regularly. Bacteria, plaque, and tartar can build up on your implant-supported dentures even though they are made up of artificial teeth. To avoid damaging them, always remove your implant-supported dentures prior to going to bed.

Preserving the Lifespan of Your New Dentures

Maintaining good oral hygiene practices is crucial for the long-term success of implant-supported dentures. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups help prevent gum disease, maintain healthy tissues around the implants, and extend the lifespan of the dentures.

Bone Health

The stability and longevity of dental implants, which support the dentures, rely on the health and density of the surrounding jawbone. Adequate bone support is essential for the long-term success of implant-supported dentures. Maintaining good oral health, addressing any issues promptly, and following recommendations can help preserve the supporting bone structure.

Lifestyle factors

Certain habits and lifestyle choices can affect the lifespan of implant-supported dentures. For instance, habits like teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism) can exert excessive force on the dentures and implants, potentially leading to complications or damage over time. Additionally, smoking has been associated with an increased risk of implant failure and complications.

Routine follow-up visits with your dentist or prosthodontist are important to monitor the health of your implants and dentures. Regular examinations, professional cleanings, and adjustments can help maintain the integrity and function of the implant-supported dentures over time.
