What Are Implant Dentures?

On the surface, implant dentures look very much like their traditional removable counterparts. They feature an acrylic, gum-colored base with a full set of replacement teeth embedded in them. However, implant dentures are held in place with dental implants, just like how natural teeth are anchored by their roots. Dental implants are small metal posts that are positioned in the jawbone, where they fuse and create a stable foundation. Then, a denture is placed on top of them. Depending on your oral health and preferences, we may recommend one of the following:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

Like their name suggests, permanent implant dentures are fixed in place and designed to only be removed by a dentist. This means you’ll wear them for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, treating them just like a natural set of teeth!

Removable Implant Dentures

Alternatively, removable implant dentures can be snapped onto and off of the dental implants in the mouth. You’ll be able to take them out for thorough cleanings whenever you need to. This type of implant denture typically requires fewer dental implants.

The Implant Denture Procedure

First, you’ll visit us for a consultation to ensure implant dentures are right for you. We’ll determine if you need any preparatory procedures like gum disease treatment and help you decide which type of implant denture would best suit your needs. Then, we’ll perform a minor surgery wherein we’ll place several dental implants into your jawbone. These will heal over the next four to six months and integrate into the bone tissue. Then, you’ll return to our office to have your custom-made denture put in place!
