If you’ve been using “regular” dentures—the type that you insert using denture adhesives— then you know how inadequate and imperfect they can be. They can slip and shift when you eat and talk, they can be difficult to care for, and they simply don’t feel or behave like the healthy natural teeth you miss. Implant-supported dentures can solve this problem. They’re much more stable because they attach to permanent dental implants.
How an implant-supported denture works.
1 Titanium implant
These strong and not-toxic titanium posts are implanted in spots specifically-chosen to maximize denture support.
The abutments permanently attach to the implants and provide attachment points for the denture.
Custom-designed dentures securely attach to the abutments. The dentures are removable, but when attached, will not budge or shift at all.
The steps in an implant-supported denture procedure.
Your implant-supported denture treatment is an in-office procedure that’s conducted in several stages—not all of which will apply to all people. Adequate time between stages is important, and the final restoration may involve several months of healing.
This is your chance to ask any questions you might have, and Dr. Berzin’s opportunity to learn more about your needs and make an informed recommendation for treatment.Book a Consultation
For those who need it, we’ll remove damaged or unhealthy teeth and/or perform a grafting procedure to create a more suitable implant site.
Placement of the dental implants
After using our Cone Beam CT scanner to find exactly the right spots in your jaw, we place the implants in a simple surgical procedure. Usually two per jaw.
Placement of abutments
After the bone has grown and healed around the implants, we can then attach the abutments to the titanium implant posts.
Placement of denture arch(es)
New dentures, designed to fit your mouth perfectly, are inserted and attached to the abutments. Your new implant-supported dentures are now complete!
The benefits of your new implant-supported dentures.
Restored bite force.
Since your new dentures are securely attached, your power to chew will match that of natural teeth
More natural speech.
Since the dentures won’t shift or move, you’ll be able to speak normally and with confidence.
It can last a lifetime.
Titanium dental implants are very strong, and with proper oral care can last many decades or more.
Prevent bone loss.
When teeth are missing, the surrounding bone gets weak and loses mass. Implants stimulate the bone to keep it strong.
It’s easy to care for.
Treat and clean your new implant-supported dentures the same way you’d care for your old-fashioned dentures.
