A Secure Replacement for Missing Teeth
Implant-supported dentures attach to permanent dental implants placed in your jaws to restore your smile. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth and won’t slip or move around when you eat or speak.
Full Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-supported full dentures are used to replace an entire row of missing teeth. We use multiple implants to ensure a secure and stable fit. Implant-supported dentures are available in permanently-attached and snap-on (removable) models depending on your needs.
Implant-Supported Bridges or Partial Dentures
Implant-supported bridges or partial dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth in a single arch. Depending on the location and number of missing teeth being restored, they are attached to one or more implants. Once implant-supported bridges or partial dentures are in place, they blend in with your natural smile.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do if my denture breaks or comes unattached from the implant?
Contact our office if your denture is damaged or detached. You may be able to use denture glue (available at a drugstore) to attach the denture to the implant temporarily. Do not use any other type of glue to reattach the denture.
How do I care for my dentures?
Brush your permanently attached dentures just like natural teeth. Removable implant-supported dentures can be removed and rinsed after meals. You can clean removable implant-supported dentures with denture solution and soak them overnight like regular dentures. See your dentist regularly to have your dentures cleaned and checked for damage.
Do implant-supported dentures affect how I eat or talk?
Like all dentures, implant-supported dentures can affect your speech. Your dentist will show you how to practice speaking so you can learn to adjust your speaking patterns to compensate.
You can eat and drink normally, but you should avoid eating sticky or hard foods that can damage your dentures. Talk to your dentist about adjusting to eating with dentures and which foods you should avoid eating.
Implant-supported dentures may change your speech slightly when you begin to wear them. You can practice reading aloud to yourself to get used to how they affect your speech.
You will be able to eat and drink normally. However, you should avoid hard or sticky foods that damage or stain your dentures. Ask your dentist for advice on how to eat with dentures and which food and drink you should avoid.
