Denture Over Implants

What is it

Denture over implants (aka implant denture) is an upper or lower denture that is secured in the mouth by dental implants and has the look, feel, and function of real teeth. Because they are anchored by implants, they are much more stable and durable than traditional dentures.

They eliminate many of the issues associated with traditional dentures, such as shifting or moving and there is no uncomfortable plastic top/bottom plate.

When is it needed/Risks of not getting it done
  • Ideal if you are missing all top/bottom teeth and/or are using traditional dentures.
  • If your traditional dentures do not fit precisely, they can cause swelling and soreness and the supporting bone will slowly erode over time.
  • Eating may be difficult with traditional dentures and eating certain foods (e.g., apples, carrots) may be impossible.
  • Dentures supported by implants solve these problems: You can now eat foods that you previously couldn’t and they dramatically reduce supporting bone erosion over time.
  • Prior to getting the denture over implants, a sufficient amount of existing bone is essential. If the bone has eroded or insufficient bone exists in the areas that require implants, a bone graft will be required in advance of this treatment.
  • The implants that will eventually attach to the denture must first be secured into either the maxillary bone (for upper denture, typically four implants) or jawbone (for lower denture, typically two implants).
  • This procedure typically takes an hour or less.
  • Following placement of the implants, the bone will need sufficient time to heal, which can take up to 20 weeks.
  • Once the implants are completely integrated and the bone is healed, dentures can be fitted and secured.
  • Your dentures will always remain in your mouth, unless you or your dentist unclips them.
  • With proper care and maintenance, the denture over implants can last many years, if not an entire lifetime.
