Dentures come in many different forms and fashions, making it easier to find the right treatment for you. One such option is a set of implant-supported permanent dentures—or denture implants.

What Are Denture Implants,
and How do They Work?

Denture implants are very similar to single-tooth implants. The only difference is that a single-tooth implant will have a dental crown attached, whereas denture implants support a complete denture set.
The first step is the implantation of a series of dental implant posts. These are usually made out of medical titanium—the same thing used in the healing of severe broken bones.
This post is placed into your jawbone, right where the root of your natural tooth would have been. Once there, it begins a healing process called osseointegration. Just as with a pin in a broken bone, the bone material grows around the post, eventually becoming fused.
The bone and the implant post are stronger together than either one is separately. It can now support a brand new tooth—or in the case of permanent dentures, an entire set of teeth.

What Are The Benefits of
Permanent Dentures?

Most people are familiar with traditional dentures. From George Washington’s famous false teeth, to the grandmothers on sitcom TV, we’ve seen a wide variety of not-always-comforting depictions of dentures.
However, modern dentures are better and more precisely crafted than they’ve ever been before. These teeth are beautiful, natural-looking, and customized to perfectly fit you with total comfort.
Permanent dentures go beyond even that. You’ll never need to worry about adhesives again.
That’s right. With implant-supported dentures, any possibility of slipping, sliding, or falling out during an inopportune moment is a thing of the past. Your permanent dentures will really and truly be exactly that: permanent.
This increase in strength allows you to bite and chew with much better efficiency and enjoy many of your favorite foods again. You will be able to clearly enunciate words and speak confidently while your teeth remain secure. Most of all, your smile will be whole again.

All-on-4® Treatment Concept: Implant Supported Dentures 

The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is an excellent way to make the most of your dental treatment. The goal is to attach your dentures to a series of dental implants with maximum efficiency, making them as strong as possible with as little dental work necessary.

Using this system, your full denture plate will be supported by only four strategically placed dental implants. If you’re interested in the efficiency and effectiveness of this system, then the All-on-4® Treatment Concept may be the permanent denture strategy for you.

Implant-Supported Denture FAQs

Am I a Candidate for Implant Supported Dentures?

There are some requirements for dental implants, the most vital of which is that you have enough jawbone material to support an implant. If your jaw can’t hold an implant, you may need to search for another option.

What About Bone Grafts?

Missing teeth can cause very severe bone recession. That’s why many people who have been missing teeth for several years find themselves unable to support an implant post. But there is an option available: bone grafts.

A bone graft can increase the bone in your jaw, allowing it to grow stronger, and potentially hold a permanent denture post.

How Long Does It Take to Heal From an Implant?

The average time for dental implant healing is several months. However, this answer depends largely on how many implants you need, how much jawbone material you already have, and the general fitness of your body’s recovery system.

“I have smiled all of my life, but was embarrassed of my teeth. I was very skeptical of veneers but when I heard about DURAthins I knew this was the answer! Since I have had my DURAthins, I have never smiled so big! I always knew that my wedding day would be special, but the smile that was on my face that day was priceless.”
