Implant-Supported Dentures

Are Implant-Supported Dentures right for you?

Implant-Supported Dentures overview

Implant-Supported Dentures from the Bracebridge Denture Clinic

While conventional dentures can help to restore the function and appearance of natural teeth, they do require the use of natural suction to remain in place. Furthermore, some denture wearers find that they cannot enjoy the full taste of their favorite foods while wearing conventional dentures, as they cover so much of the palate.

If you are ready to improve the quality of your life, it is time to visit the Bracebridge Denture Clinic to discuss a more secure alternative to conventional dentures – implant-supported dentures.

Implant-Supported Dentures Explained

Implant-Supported Dentures

While conventional dentures rest on your gums and are often times attached with denture adhesive, implant supported dentures, also known as “implant overdentures”, are held in place by dental implants. This means that they can offer a more comfortable and permanent teeth replacement solution as compared to the conventional alternative.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implant is the preferred method of tooth replacement. Dental implants are simply substitutes for tooth roots; they form a stable foundation for permanent tooth replacement. They are also important as support for full and partial dentures because they join with bone to anchor replacement teeth.

Dental implants also help preserve bone by providing stimulation that had been provided by the natural tooth root system; this helps to maintain your facial structure. Dental implants are the closest replacements for natural teeth and the shortest path to a natural smile. They have also become very affordable. Ask our denturist Andre if implants might be the best solution for you.

What Are Implant Overdentures?

The terms “implant overdentures”, “implant-supported dentures”, and “denture implants” refer to full-palate dental prosthetics that combine dental implants and dentures.

This means that implant overdentures are anchored by dental implants, which are permanently embedded within your jawbone. Implant-supported dentures can be either permanent or removable. Removable implant overdentures will “snap in” in place and can be removed for cleaning. On the other hand, permanent dentures can only be removed by your Denturist.

Know when to choose

When are Dental Implants the Best Choice?

Dental implants require an adequate amount of jawbone. This means that implant overdentures are the best choice when you have no teeth left in the jaw but still have sufficient jawbone to hold the implants. Most of the time, this type of dentures is used for the lower jaw to ensure added stability, as conventional dentures often feel unstable in the lower arch. However, you can receive implant-supported dentures for the upper arch as well.

Dental implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. Many patients with implants report that they are happier and more comfortable than they have been since their natural teeth were lost.

A Great Choice

Benefits of Implant-Retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures are more stable and feel more natural than other types of dentures. They also offer excellent restoration options and success rates.

Here are some of the benefits of choosing implant overdentures for full-arch tooth replacement:


Implant-supported dentures offer considerably more comfort as compared to their traditional counterparts. Dental implants allow for better biting force distribution, which means more comfortable biting and more natural chewing ability.

Bone preservation

Because dental implants replace natural tooth roots, they preserve the natural bone around them, preventing it from shrinking or dissolving over time.

Implant-retained dentures are made to last for many years. While they do require eventual replacement, it involves a quick and easy procedure, since only the denture is replaced. The implants themselves can last a lifetime.

Our 5 steps

Over Denture Implant Process

If Andre recommends you to go with implant overdentures, you can expect to undergo the following steps over the course of several months:

1. Implant Surgery

Firstly, you will need to undergo an in-office oral surgery, during which implants will be placed within your jawbone. The implants look like small, metal screws, which will eventually anchor your denture in place. If you do not have sufficient jawbone, a bone grafting procedure may be necessary.

2. Healing

Once the implants are in place, you will need to wait for your bone to fuse with them. For upper jaw implants, the typical wait time is five to six months, while the lower jaw will take three to four months. Andre might give you a temporary denture  to wear while your implant site is healing.

3. Impressions

In order to fabricate the denture itself and ensure its precise fit, your Denturist will need to take impressions of your gums and abutments.

4. Denture Placement

Once the healing period is complete, a metal bar will be attached to your implant abutments. The fabricated denture will then be placed over the metal bar temporarily. If all fits well, the dental prosthetics will be attached to the denture framework. Otherwise, more adjustments can be made.

5. Enjoy!

Soon after your final denture is attached, you will notice that your ability to chew and speak starts to improve. Finally, you will be able to enjoy your life to the fullest and smile with confidence again!
