Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-Supported Dentures in Phoenix, AZ & Sun City, AZ

A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth and adjacent tissues. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. When an implant is used to support dentures, they are called implant-supported dentures.

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

An implant-supported denture is secured by dental implants rather than by gum tissue. The implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone and integrate with the bone over time. Once the implants have successfully fused with the bone, the dentist will attach small metal abutments to the posts. These small abutments will be used to attach the dentures to the implant posts in the mouth. 

Advantages of Implant-Supported Dentures

Since dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone, they stimulate the bone like natural teeth and never slip out of place or require daily adhesives to be stable. This can restore your facial structure and restore your confidence to smile again in public. Traditional dentures often make patients feel self-conscious about smiling and laughing openly. They also tend to shift and slide around in the mouth while you eat and speak, causing speech problems and difficulty chewing certain foods. Many patients are amazed by how comfortable their implant-supported dentures are to wear and how natural they feel.

Patients that choose partial or full dentures may consider switching to an implant-supported denture, which can provide them with a number of benefits.

  • Improved comfort – Since there are no moving pieces, implant-supported dentures won't rub against the gums and mouth tissue the same way traditional dentures can. This can reduce the irritation and soreness that is common with traditional dentures.
  • Increased stability – The implants are anchored into the jawbone, which acts much like the root of a natural tooth. This provides more stability and support for the artificial teeth.
  • Easier eating – Dental implants give you back the ability to eat the foods you love with confidence. With implant-supported dentures, you don't have to worry that your dentures will slip out of place while chewing food or speaking when you laugh.
  • Better oral health – Traditional dentures rest on top of the gums and can cause bone deterioration over time. While dental implants require surgery, they prevent the deterioration of the jawbone and other oral structures.
