How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?

Traditional dentures are built to rest directly on your gums, using friction and dental adhesive to stay in place. Implant-retained dentures are different than traditional dentures. Rather than sitting on the gums, implant-retained dentures are built to snap onto a series of 4-6 dental implants, which are surgically implanted into your gums and jaw.

What Are The Benefits Of Implant-Retained Dentures?

Implant-retained dentures have a number of unique benefits. Unlike traditional dentures, they will not move or shift while you eat or speak. Your implant-retained dentures will always maintain a secure hold.

Implant-retained dentures also look and feel more natural than traditional dentures. Additionally, they help strengthen your jaw and prevent bone resorption after tooth loss. The implants help stimulate your jaw bone in a way that’s similar to your natural teeth, preventing the jaw tissue from deteriorating.

What Is the Treatment Process Like?

First, you’ll need to have any remaining teeth extracted. You may also require bone grafting if your jaw is weak due to bone resorption after tooth loss. Dr. King will begin creating your treatment plan using x-rays, digital images, and impressions of your teeth.

Next, your implants will be placed. Dr. King will surgically insert a series of 4-6 implants in the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches of your teeth, depending on your unique needs. You’ll receive a temporary set of implant-supported dentures to wear while your implants heal.
The healing process will take 3-6 months. During this time, you’ll come in for a few follow-up appointments. During these appointments, Dr. King will ensure you’re recovering properly while taking measurements and impressions of your mouth to begin crafting your permanent implant-retained denture.

Once your mouth has fully healed, you’ll come back for your final appointment. Dr. King will check the fit of your implant-retained dentures, then snap them into place, completing the procedure. She will also provide you with instructions on how to clean and maintain your dentures to ensure they stay in good condition.

Am I A Good Candidate For Implant-Retained Dentures?

If you are missing most or all of your natural teeth, but your jaw bone is still strong enough to have dental implants, you may be a good candidate for implant-retained dentures.Even if your jaw bone has deteriorated due to bone loss, you may still be able to receive implant-retained dentures with mini implants or bone grafting to strengthen your jaw and prepare it for full implants.
