Denture over Implants in Newmarket, ON
Denture over implants (otherwise known as an implant denture) is an upper or lower denture secured in the mouth by dental implants and has the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. Since implants anchor the dentures, they are much more stable and durable than traditional dentures.
This treatment option helps eliminate many of the issues associated with traditional dentures, such as shifting, moving around, discomfort, and plastic top and bottom plates. We are proud to offer modernized, updated versions of conventional dental treatments to our patients that will help you achieve satisfaction with your teeth’s appearance and function!

What are they, and am I the right candidate?
If your traditional dentures do not fit precisely, they can cause swelling and soreness in your mouth and cause the supporting bone to slowly erode over time. With conventional dentures, you might find eating is complicated and eating certain hard and crunchy foods such as apples and carrots seem downright impossible.
Dentures supported by implants in Newmarket, ON, solve these problems: eating foods you previously couldn’t and dramatically reducing your supporting bone’s erosion over time. They are ideal if you miss all of your top or bottom teeth or have already been using traditional dentures.

Sign me up! How does it work?
Before getting the denture over implants, we will require you to have a sufficient amount of existing bone is essential. If your bone has eroded or has insufficient bone in the areas that require implants, we will need to perform a bone graft before moving forward with the denture over implants treatment.
- First, the implants that will eventually attach to the denture must be secured into either your maxillary bone (for an upper denture, which typically requires four implants) or your jawbone (for lower denture, which typically requires two implants). This part of the procedure will likely take only an hour or less.
- Next, after placing the implants, you will need to give your bone up to 20 weeks before proceeding with the dental treatment. Once the implants have entirely integrated, and your bone is healed, we can fit and secure the dentures. They will always remain in your mouth after that unless you or your dentist unclips them.
With proper care and maintenance, your denture over implants can last many years—if not an entire lifetime. Simply continue to practice good oral hygiene and maintain your regular visits to the dentist for checkups!
