Get a more secure fit with implant-supported dentures

For many years, dentures have been a popular method of replacing missing teeth. However, despite the advancements in dentures and adhesives, they can often feel loose and uncomfortable.

Many people who are missing their teeth choose to wear dentures but dentures often don’t fit well and can be bulky. This can lead to problems with chewing and speaking, as well as a general feeling of insecurity.

Comfort Care Dental offers implant-supported dentures, a more secure and comfortable option for our patients. With implant-supported dentures, it is possible to have dentures that look and feel more natural. If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported denture can help you regain both function and aesthetics. They are more comfortable than traditional dentures and will not slip or click when you talk or eat. If you are interested in learning more about implant-supported dentures, contact Comfort Care Dental today. We will be happy to answer any of your questions and help you decide if this treatment option is right for you.

Who Needs Implant-Supported Dentures?

An implant-supported denture replaces several teeth with a denture anchored to the bone. Below is a list of patients who could benefit from this type of dental procedure.

Patients who don't have enough bone to stabilize dentures

Using implant-supported dentures is an excellent option for people with insufficient jaw bone to stabilize traditional dentures. This type of denture is stabilized in place by two or more implants inserted in the jawbone, making sure that it will not move around like traditional dentures.

Patients who are sensitive to pressure on their gums

Pressure is always applied to the gums whenever you chew or bite with conventional dentures. But with an implant-supported denture, the firm anchorage of the implant to the jawbone keeps the denture from moving. This frees up the gums from pressure.

Patients with active or hyperactive gag reflex from a removable prosthesis

Implant-supported dentures do not rely on the plastic base for retention. The implants retain the dentures, so the artificial teeth's plastic base is made very thin. This results in a smaller, less bulky denture. The reduced size of implant-supported dentures is advantageous to patients with active or hyperactive gag reflexes.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

The implant-supported denture combines the best qualities of dentures and dental implants. It can be made of porcelain or acrylic teeth embedded in a gum-coloured base with attachments that can be screwed on implants. It is an excellent alternative treatment to traditional dentures, and the firm anchorage of the implant to the jaw bone brings about its most significant advantage.

In case you are missing more than two teeth or all of your teeth, you can have them replaced with a denture supported by implants. Unlike traditional partial dentures and complete dentures, implant-supported dentures are fixed. They are screwed into the implant to keep them from moving. This way, you no longer need to worry about slipping dentures when you eat or talk. The implant will firmly attach the denture to your jaw bone, making it work and feel like your natural teeth.

In dental implantology, not every tooth must be replaced with an implant. The number of implants needed to support dentures varies from patient to patient. A minimum of two can support a full set of upper or lower dentures, but this can increase up to five or six based on the patient’s jaw bone quality and the patient’s biting force. For more information regarding implant-supported dentures and to have an idea of how many implants you need, you may consult your dentist for an individualized assessment.

Implant-supported dentures are an excellent alternative to regular dentures. If you have a partial denture or a complete denture that is loose and bulky and you wish to have a more comfortable, natural-looking denture, an implant-supported denture is a suitable option for you. If you want to know if you’re a good candidate for an implant-supported denture, check the list below for the criteria.

  • Patients who lost more than two teeth or all their teeth
    If you have lost more than two teeth or all your teeth due to tooth decay, gum disease, trauma or other dental conditions, implant-supported dentures can replace your teeth without anchoring to adjacent teeth. This denture can provide false teeth that feel and function like your real teeth.

  • Patients with adequate jaw bone to support implants
    Patients who want to have implant-supported dentures must have sufficient jaw bone to support the implants. Compared to the other kind of implant denture, this type of denture requires more implants because they are fixed. Because of this, it is a must that the patient has sufficient and good-quality bone to support more dental implants. In case your dentist determines insufficiency of the jaw bone, bone grafts can be used to augment it.

  • Patients must be able to maintain good oral hygiene.
    The success of any dental treatment lies in the responsible maintenance of good oral hygiene. This does not rely on the dentist alone but more so on the patient. If a patient cannot maintain the cleanliness of the teeth and the surrounding area of the implant, gum inflammation can occur, and this may lead to gum disease, which can increase the risk of implant failure.

  • Patients without medical conditions or treatments that can complicate implant surgery
    Placement of implants requires surgery which poses some risk, especially in the presence of medical conditions. Patients who wish to undergo implant surgery must go through a screening to ensure that they do not have any medical condition that may complicate the surgery and that they are not undergoing any medical treatment that can affect the healing of the bone and other oral tissues. If they do so, these medical issues must be controlled first before proceeding with an implant-supported denture.

An implant-supported denture offers a number of benefits over traditional dentures.

  1. They provide unparalleled stability.
    Implant-supported dentures do not move around like traditional dentures. It is held in place by implants that are embedded into the bone. These implants provide a stable anchorage that prevents the denture from loosening and shifting while talking, drinking and eating.

  2. They feel like natural teeth.
    Implant-supported dentures feel and function more like natural teeth. Since these dentures are embedded into the bone, their stable anchorage allows the patient to bite and chew with greater ease than traditional dentures making the wearer feel like they’re using their natural teeth again.

  3. They provide an alternative to patients without sufficient bone.
    One of the side effects of losing teeth is shrinkage of the bone after extraction, called bone resorption. With the loss of multiple teeth, this bone loss can lead to a major alteration of the jaw bone structure, which not only makes it challenging to retain dentures but also changes the structure of the entire face.

With implant-supported dentures, patients with insufficient bone can still have their teeth replaced with a stable denture. Through bone graft procedure, the jaw bone can be stimulated for bone growth. With adequate bone tissue, the patient can now receive dental implants, which can be used to support their denture.

An implant-supported denture is a safe and secure method of replacing lost teeth, restoring your smile and maintaining your oral health. Instead of being supported by natural teeth, implants hold these dentures in place. An implant is a titanium post inserted in the jaw bone to act as artificial tooth roots. Implants are not only for single tooth replacements. It can also replace a couple of teeth or even an entire arch of teeth. These implants provide a strong, stable and safe anchorage that allows patients to chew and bite efficiently.
Traditional dentures are the most popular method of teeth replacement due to their accessibility and affordability. However, retention of this denture has always been a primary concern of patients. If you are considering the replacement of your traditional dentures with a more comfortable, sturdy and natural-looking denture, this can be accomplished easily with implant-supported dentures. The replacement process is easy, and it begins with a visit to our clinic, where our dentist will guide you through the comfortable process of implant-supported denture treatment.

An implant-supported denture is an alternative method of replacing multiple missing teeth. It is highly successful in providing a stable denture that can restore patients’ healthy smiles. However, dental implant therapy is not without risk. Complications may occur during the surgical procedure of implant placement or after the dentures have been secured in place.

 These complications may include bacterial infection, damage to surrounding teeth, surrounding nerves and blood vessels, excessive bleeding, pain, perforation of the sinus cavity and implant failure. As worrisome as they may sound, these risks can be manageable and minimized with proper care by an experienced dentist and a compliant patient.

Like natural teeth, implant-supported dentures must be thoroughly cleaned daily. They may be made out of artificial teeth, but they can still accumulate plaque and food debris, triggering gum inflammation if not removed. Brushing your denture three times a day and flossing the area between your denture and natural teeth are important. This will keep you from damaging your remaining teeth, and it will help preserve them.

Visiting your dentist regularly is another way of taking care of implant-supported dentures. During your visit, your dentist can unscrew your denture, remove it, clean it and examine it. Thorough checking of your denture, implant, gum tissue and remaining teeth can help ensure that your denture stays in good condition so that you can enjoy many years of comfort and confidence with your implant-supported denture.

The price of an implant-supported denture varies depending on the number of teeth that need to be replaced, the number of implants that will hold the denture in place, the materials used, labour costs, and other factors. The cost of treatment can range from $7,000to $8,600, and it may increase depending on the mentioned factors. Since the cost varies from patient to patient, you may visit Comfort Care Dental so our dentist can give you a more accurate cost estimate.

While other conventional replacement options may be cheaper, implant-supported dentures offer long-term benefits that can provide patients with more convenient, sturdy and natural-looking teeth, making them an excellent choice for anyone wishing to restore their complete smile.
