Implant Supported Dentures
This implant denture procedure is a unique implant solution that allows patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth to replace a full arch of teeth using only 4 implants as “anchors”.
This implant denture technique offers many advantages over traditional dentures.
Easy to care for, this solution can simulate the look and feel of natural teeth and stay fixed in place with the implants acting as anchors. Patients will not experience the typical rocking and movement or gum irritation associated with dentures. Patients can often leave the same day with a full arch of teeth, reducing both overall cost and healing time for the patient.
Dental implant placement can help alleviate the sunken look that can occur with bone loss in the jaw by stimulating bone growth in the area around the implant. This process is called osseointegration and can also help prevent future bone loss.
With this implant supported full arch, there is no plate covering the roof of the mouth, so speaking and eating are more natural and comfortable than with a traditional denture.

Step One: Consultation
An initial consultation and exam will allow the doctor and patient to determine patient oral health and treatment goals and determine if the patient is a candidate for the procedure. During this appointment, a treatment plan will be developed and agreed upon and the procedure date will be scheduled.
Step Two: Diagnostic Mock-Up
Using radiographs and specialized digital imaging, the doctor can come up with a specific treatment plan.
Step Three: All Implants Done (In One Day)
On the date of the procedure, any necessary extractions can be performed and then the necessary implants can be placed.
Step Four: Fixed Dentures (Same Day)
A custom temporary full restoration will be placed on the newly placed implants, which act as anchors. The patient can leave the office with a full smile, created to fit their individual face shape, lips and smile line.
Step Five: Final Dentures (Four Months Later)
After the implants have had a few months to fuse to the jaw bone (a process called osseointegration), the patient will return for the removal of the temporary restoration and the placement of the permanent prosthesis.
