What are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are dental prostheses that attach to implants inserted directly into your jawbone. Implant-supported dentures are fixed and, unlike traditional dentures, remain in place without slipping or falling out. They are a versatile option for patients with missing teeth who do not want to opt for a full set of implants. Implant-supported dentures ensure you can confidently eat, speak, and smile with zero discomfort.

The Implant-supported Dentures Procedure

The procedure for an implant-supported denture will require multiple appointments with Dr. Philip M. Gray.


The first and most important appointment is the consultation. During the consultation appointment, Dr. Gray will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums, ensuring your jawbone health is strong enough for the implant placement. He will also check to ensure implant-supported dentures work for you.

The Procedure

During the procedure, we will ensure you are comfortable and feel no pain with local anesthesia. Depending on your jaw size, Dr. Gray will place two to four dental implants into your jawbone.

Healing Period

Dental implants take several months as there is a period of three to six months of healing that needs to take place. This period is essential to give the implants time to bond with the jawbone - a process known as "osseointegration."

The Final Appointment

After osseointegration, Dr. Gray will attach a bar or ball-retained overdenture to the implant abutments, securing it in place. This type of denture differs from a traditional denture because it is solid, doesn't require adhesives or clasps to stay in position, and is better at withstanding the wear and tear of everyday use.


After undergoing the implant-supported denture procedure, there are some things you must do to ensure the health of your new smile and help with the healing process.

  1. Side-effects: After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort or swelling. Dr. Gray may prescribe some medications to help manage these symptoms.
  2. Diet: We strongly suggest you eat soft foods for a while as your teeth heal from the procedure.
  3. Oral hygiene: Brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash are essential to ensuring the health of your smile. With proper care, your implant-supported dentures can last a lifetime. So be sure to take care of them by following good oral hygiene care.  

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures


Improved Stability and Comfort
Implant-supported dentures typically use titanium posts to provide a stable foundation for your prosthetic teeth. The posts function as the tooth's root and are surgically placed in your jawbone. You don't have to worry about slipping, clicking, or discomfort with implant-supported dentures. You can speak and eat with ease and confidence.


Better Oral Health
Dental implants, including implant-supported dentures, can help preserve your oral health by stimulating the jawbone. But, placing implant-supported dentures can stimulate the jawbone to remain strong and healthy, reducing the risk of further tooth loss, gum disease, or other oral health problems.


Improved Speech and Mastication
Traditional dentures can slip, click, or may not fit naturally, causing discomfort or issues with speech and mastication. However, implant-supported dentures remain securely in place, allowing patients to speak naturally and enjoy a fuller range of foods without fear of slipping or shifting.


Long-lasting Solution
Implant-supported dentures are a durable and long-lasting solution compared to traditional dentures, which must be replaced every few years due to wear and tear. The implants themselves can last a lifetime, and the prosthetic teeth attached to them are highly durable, making implant-supported dentures an investment in your oral health that will pay off long-term.


Improved Appearance and Confidence
Traditional dentures may demonstrate visible signs of teeth and bone loss and may not fit perfectly, resulting in a less-than-optimal appearance. In contrast, implant-supported dentures look and feel natural, significantly improving your appearance and confidence. You can enjoy a renewed sense of confidence and smile more confidently with implant-supported dentures.
