If you are tired of dealing with loose dentures, then visit our dentist for implant-supported dentures. By attaching dentures to dental implants, these restorations have a stability that allows you to chew and speak without the fear of your dentures falling out. You can receive implant-supported dentures when we perform the following procedure:

  • We will take X-rays of your mouth to determine if the jaw bone if healthy enough to support the implants. If the bone density is too low, then you may need to have bone grafted to your jaw.
  • We will place the implants in your jaw bone. If you don’t already own dentures, we will give you a temporary set to wear while your mouth heals. These temporary dentures can be designed so they don’t put pressure on the implants.
  • After months of waiting for your jaw to grow around the implants, we will make incisions in the gum tissue that expose them, allowing us to attach an abutment post on top.
  • The implant-supported dentures will be created so they can snap over the abutment posts.
