What are
Implant-supported Dentures

Dentures are the typical solution for missing teeth, but they aren’t always ideal. They can be uncomfortable and cause issues if not correctly fitted. Additionally, conventional dentures aren’t very stable; chewing food with these types of false teeth can damage them or loosen their grip on your mouth.
Implant-supported dentures offer an alternative to conventional dentures that may be more suitable for some patients with missing teeth due to dental conditions or injuries. Implant-supported dentures, also known as snap-on or snap-in dentures, are a combination of dental implants and dentures. Held in place by dental implants or screws inserted into your jawbone, they are more sturdy and versatile than traditional dentures. Afterwards, the dentures, also known as overdentures, are fitted. Based on how the overdenture and implants are constructed, the overdenture can be removable or fixed permanently.

Depending on the specific needs of each patient, the procedure may vary. However, the following is the basic process:

Implants are first implanted in the jaw. It may take 2-6 months for the implants and bone mass to fuse together, producing a strong enough anchor for the snap-in dentures.

An additional procedure may be required to uncover the implants and install extensions. These temporary healing caps serve as the whole foundation for prosthetic teeth at this time. If the implant system already has extensions attached, this step can be skipped.

After the implants have been inserted, a connecting device may be used to hold the dentures in place. Full dentures are then fabricated and attached to the connecting device.

Depending on your bone volume and the severity of your tooth or gum decay, you may need bone grafting to support the necessary implants for snap-in dentures. It may necessitate a lengthy recovery period.

Implant dentures are a good option for people who are losing the majority of their teeth due to an injury, dental cavities, or periodontal disease. It may also be a preferable solution for those who don’t want to deal with the disadvantages of traditional dentures.

However, not everyone qualifies for an implant-supported denture. An evaluation of the patient’s jawbone tissue is necessary before installation. A good candidate for snap-in dentures are patients who have adequate bone tissue. A bone graft or artificial bone tissue may be used when the patient does not have sufficient bone tissue.

Implant treatment costs start at $5,000, but we can provide you with a more specific quote during an implant consultation. The price may vary depending on the number of implants and your specific circumstances.

Alternatives to multiple implants include:

  1. Removable Partial Dentures: People who don’t want to wear a permanent bridge or implant can opt for partial removable dentures. It is an option for people who are missing teeth. A removable partial denture is often held in place by adjacent teeth, which are essentially clenched together. Partially missing teeth are often replaced with removable partial dentures. Placing dentures is a non-invasive procedure, and dentures are usually made from acrylic or nylon.
  2. Full-mouth Dentures: A complete denture is a great option when all of your teeth are missing, or you need to have all of your remaining teeth extracted due to decay or damage. When your dentures are in place, you’ll appear to have a complete set of straight teeth. Dentures are an excellent teeth replacement option that allows you to enjoy eating more than you could with just your gums or severely damaged teeth. However, they do not chew as well as natural teeth or dental implants, so your diet may be limited.
  3. Dental Bridges: A dental bridge comprises one or more artificial teeth, called pontics, that are anchored against the teeth on either side of the gap. In most cases, pontics are made of porcelain, which blends seamlessly with natural teeth. Some are made of gold, however. Dental bridges are classified into four main types: traditional, cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported.
  4. Implant-retained Dentures: Implant-retained dentures are held in place by dental implants. The bite force is also held on the gums by the implants. Implant-retained dentures, unlike implant-supported dentures, can be secured with small implants or require fewer implants entirely.
