Implant-Supported Dentures

A Secure Solution for Tooth Loss

At Lake Myrtle Dental, implant-supported dentures are a specialized type of denture that is secured in place using dental implants. Unlike traditional dentures, which rely on adhesives or suction to stay in place, implant-supported dentures are anchored to dental implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone.

The Process of Getting Implant-Supported Dentures

  1. Consultation: During your initial consultation, our experienced dental team will evaluate your oral health, discuss your tooth replacement options, and determine if implant-supported dentures are the right choice for you.
  2. Implant Placement: Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone by our skilled oral surgeon or implantologist. The number of implants required will depend on the specific treatment plan and the condition of your jawbone.
  3. Healing Period: After implant placement, a healing period of several months is typically required to allow the implants to fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. During this time, temporary restorations may be provided as needed.
  4. Denture Fabrication: Once the implants have healed and fused with the jawbone, impressions of your mouth are taken to create a custom-fitted denture that will attach to the implants.
  5. Attachment of Denture: The custom-made denture is then securely attached to the dental implants, providing a stable and comfortable restoration that looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth.

Advantages of Implant-Supported Dentures

  1. Stability and Security: Implant-supported dentures are firmly anchored in place, eliminating the need for adhesives and preventing slippage or movement while eating, speaking, or smiling.
  2. Improved Comfort: Because implant-supported dentures are securely attached to dental implants, they feel more stable and comfortable than traditional dentures, reducing irritation to the gums and improving overall oral function.
  3. Enhanced Bone Health: Dental implants help stimulate the jawbone and prevent bone loss, preserving facial structure and maintaining oral health over time.
  4. Lifelike Appearance: Implant-supported dentures are custom-made to closely resemble natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing smile that boosts confidence and self-esteem.
