Implant-supported dentures are complete or partial dentures that are attached to dental implants. Dental implants are made from medical-grade titanium and are readily accepted by the body. This device is inserted into the jaw and acts as an artificial tooth root. Over time, the jawbone fuses with the implant surface forming a firm anchor to support the dentures.
Our denture specialists are confident that this is a superior treatment option for many patients today.
We’ll suggest the right denture solution for you.
Removable Dentures on Implants
We offer removable options that secure the denture by implant, but can still be taken out for daily cleaning. Every patient is different, and we would be more than happy to schedule a time where we can discuss the best options for your mouth.
Fixed Dentures on Implants
Some patients prefer a permanent or fixed option for their denture implants. In this case, only a dental specialist should remove the dentures. Otherwise, they remain in your mouth and act similar to natural teeth. This option provides the patient with a more natural sensation, as well as exposes the roof of the mouth almost completely from the denture.

What are denture implants?
Denture implants are implants that are fused to the jawbone and can be attached to a denture. This offers patients more security and stability with their dentures, as dentures on implants function the most like natural teeth out of the different denture options.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are designed to last forever since they become a part of your bone. Depending on the situation, the dentures that go on these implants may need replacing.
