The problem with dentures

Dentures have been the mainstay of tooth replacement for centuries. However, they're only ever able to restore limited function. For some, keeping them put becomes difficult after years of wear and the accompanying bone loss in the jaw. Retention is extra problematic in lower dentures where the tongue can cause them to slip and slide.

Implant Denture Options

‘SNAP-IN' DENTURES

This cost-effective method is for the lower jaw only. Two implants in your bottom jaw with 'magnet' type attachments securely hold your denture in place. The back part of the denture rests on the gums. With the increased retention you'll be confident that your dentures are going to fall out and you'll also be able to eat a wider variety of foods.

FIXED IMPLANT DENTURES

Fixed implant dentures or All-on-4 is an option for both top or bottom jaws. This advanced treatment means that with four dental implants you can have an entirely fixed set of teeth. Unlike the 'snap-in' type solution this is not removable and does not rest on your gums, only your dentist can remove the teeth.

What is the implant denture process?

 

'Snap-in' type implant dentures take between 3-6 months to complete.  

Step 1

Consultation & Imaging

To see if you are a candidate for dental implants we need to take a special 3-D image of your jaw to see how much bone you have.
Step 2

Implant placement

Using the 3-D image, we use software to plan the position of your implants. With a custom template, we safely and precisely place the implants in the jaw. We modify your existing denture so that it fits over the implants and you can still wear it during the healing phase.
Step 3

New denture placed

The implants are left 3-6 months to heal and have bone grow around them. After the healing period, we make a new denture with special attachments on the inside that 'snap-in' to your implants.
