Perfect for patients who desire a fixed, permanent solution but may not qualify for traditional implants.
If you've lost or are about to lose all of your natural teeth on an upper or lower arch, Implant-Supported Dentures combine the anchoring power of implants with the coverage of dentures. However, they eliminate dentures' negative aspects, including slippage, clacking, loss of taste, and other bothersome factors.

about Implant-Supported Dentures
What are Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported appliances rely on two or more implant posts for a stable, lasting smile. These posts integrate with your jaw for a strong, stable foundation. A highly cosmetic denture appliance is attached to the implants for a natural look, feel, and function. Same-day options are also available for the ultimate convenience. Imagine going from extractions to brand new teeth in a single visit!
What are the benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?
Implant-Supported Dentures are ideal for patients seeking more affordable ways to replace missing teeth. We can also repair and secure loose dentures that have made it harder to speak, eat or smile with confidence.
Implant-Supported Dentures can provide you with a more youthful appearance, supporting the structure of the face and stopping the process of bone loss. Further, they are more stable and feel like natural teeth. Plus, there is no gum tissue irritation due to dentures slipping. With Implant-Supported Dentures, all slippage is eliminated.
Perhaps best of all, you will no longer need to use messy creams or adhesives to secure your denture in place. And you'll be able to clean your Implant-Supported Dentures just like natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing.
Who is a good candidate for Implant-Supported Dentures?
Patients who have previously used dentures but are otherwise in good health are excellent candidates for Implant-Supported Dentures. In fact, many of our patients who have been told they have too much bone loss to have traditional dental implants are ecstatic to hear that they are perfect candidates for Implant-Supported Dentures because there's no need for bone grafts or other bone enhancement procedures.
