Implant-supported dentures are a modern dental solution designed to provide stability and comfort for individuals who have lost multiple teeth. Unlike traditional dentures that rely on adhesives or suction to stay in place, implant-supported dentures are securely anchored to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone. 

Procedure for Getting Implant-Supported Dentures 

Getting implant-supported dentures involves a multi-step process that requires the expertise of our dentist in Port Charlotte, FL. 

  • Consultation: The first step is to schedule a consultation with the dentist. During this initial visit, they will assess your oral health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for implant-supported dentures. 
  • Treatment planning: Once it is determined that implant-supported dentures are right for you, the next step is creating a personalized treatment plan. This includes determining the number of implants needed and discussing any necessary preparatory procedures, such as tooth extractions or bone grafting. 
  • Implant placement: The implants will be surgically placed into your jawbone by our experienced dentist.
  • Healing period: After implant placement, there will be a healing period to allow time for proper fusion between the implants and jawbone through a process called osseointegration. It may take several months for the implants to fully integrate with the bone. During this time, temporary dentures may be worn to maintain aesthetics and function. 
  • Final restoration: Once healing is complete, abutments (connectors) are attached to the implants, which serve as anchors for attaching custom-made dentures that fit securely in place. 
  • Ongoing Maintenance: Regular checkups and good oral hygiene practices are essential for maintaining healthy gums and prolonging the lifespan of your implant-supported dentures. 

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures 

Implant-supported dentures offer numerous benefits that make them an attractive option for individuals who have lost multiple teeth.

  • One of the main advantages is their stability and security. Unlike traditional dentures that can slip or shift while eating or speaking, implant-supported dentures are firmly anchored in place by dental implants. 
  • With implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy improved chewing efficiency and better speech clarity. The secure fit allows for a more natural biting force, enabling you to eat a wider variety of foods without discomfort or restrictions. Speaking confidently becomes easier as well since there's no need to worry about the dentures slipping out of place. 
  • Another significant benefit is that implant-supported dentures help preserve bone density in the jawbone. When teeth are missing, the underlying bone can deteriorate over time. Dental implants stimulate the jawbone just like natural tooth roots do, preventing bone loss and maintaining overall oral health. 
  • Implant-supported dentures provide enhanced comfort compared to traditional removable options. They do not cause sore spots on gums like those caused by ill-fitting dentures and alleviate any concerns about adhesives or messy cleaning routines. 
  • In addition to these functional advantages, implant-supported dentures also contribute to a more youthful appearance by preventing facial sagging often associated with missing teeth.
