Do you struggle with traditional dentures? Do you find them uncomfortable and ill-fitted? Do you hate dealing with dental adhesives to keep them in place? If you need replacement options for multiple teeth that require less care and attention, then implant-supported dentures might be right for you. The team at Summit Dental of La Mesa in the La Mesa, California community, is here to help with alternative options.

What are implant-supported dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are a full-arch replacement option for patients who want a sturdy, strong, and stable alternative to traditional full dentures. Implant-supported dentures are more conservative and eliminate the need for dental adhesives and covering the palate. They are easier to adjust to and allow patients to enjoy all their favorite foods once again without worrying about loose or dislodged dentures.

How do implant-supported dentures work?

The implant-supported dentures require the placement of about four dental implants along the dental arch during oral surgery. Then, a set of false teeth is fabricated at the laboratory and made to snap into place with the dental implants. This ensures a more permanent option when compared to conventional methods of tooth replacement.

What are the benefits of implant-supported dentures?

There are several advantages to using implant-supported dentures that make them a highly desirable choice for many of our patients. These dentures are:

  • Long-lasting
  • Permanent
  • Made to replace multiple missing teeth
  • Easy to care for
  • Simple to keep clean
  • Stronger and more stable
  • Biocompatible

Who is a candidate?

The best candidates for implant-supported dentures are adult men and women who have experienced full tooth loss and want a more permanent option. Patients are evaluated to ensure they have enough bone structure to support the dental implants and ensure a successful procedure.
