Implant Supported Dentures
Philadelphia, PA

A hand holding a model of implant supported dentures at Kaiser, Rosen & Kurman Dental Associates in Philadelphia, PAImplant-supported dentures are tooth restorations that offer a long-term solution for patients who have lost their lower or upper teeth. These dentures are securely anchored to dental implants, providing stability and durability.

Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are a permanent solution for improved comfort, functionality, and aesthetics. They give patients the confidence to speak, smile naturally, and chew food easier than with traditional dentures. Our dentists at Kaiser, Rosen & Kurman Dental Associates can place implant-supported dentures in your mouth successfully. However, you must have a substantial amount of healthy bone in your jaw. Some patients do not meet this requirement. This necessitates additional procedures like a bone graft to enhance the bone structure and create a suitable foundation for the implants.

Implant Supported Dentures Procedure

Getting implant-supported dentures takes between two to seven months to complete. Initially, you will undergo implant surgery, during which the dentist or surgeon will open your gums to expose your jawbone. The implants are placed deep into the bone, and the healing process can take two to six months. This period allows for osseointegration, which is the process of the implants fusing with the bone to create a strong anchor for the dentures.

Depending on the specific surgical approach chosen by your dentist or surgeon, you may need a second surgery. During this procedure, the surgeon will uncover the implants and attach abutments. These abutments serve as the foundation for attaching your new teeth. However, the second surgery may not be necessary if the implants have attached abutments. Your dental professional will determine the exact course of treatment based on your circumstances and the specific treatment plan established. After the implants fully heal, your dentist will take a precise mold of your dental arch. This mold will be sent to a dental laboratory where skilled technicians will fabricate your custom dentures. Once the dentures are completed, they will be sent to your dentist's office. Finally, your dentist will carefully place the dentures in your mouth, ensuring a proper fit and alignment for optimal comfort and functionality.

How to Care for Your Implant Supported Dentures

Maintaining a daily oral hygiene routine is crucial to prevent plaque buildup, staining, and gum disease when wearing dentures. Bacteria and food particles can accumulate in your mouth, causing these issues. By taking proper care of your mouth, you can maintain healthy gums, have better denture functionality, and a bright and confident smile.

Use regular toothpaste and a soft-bristle toothbrush to brush your dentures at least two times a day. Always ensure that you use a toothpaste that does not have microbeads or whitening agents. Most dentists may recommend a water flosser to clean your gums and dentures. On top of all that, you can also rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash once or twice daily. Lastly, make sure you visit your dentist for a deep cleaning and full dental exam at least once a year or as your dentist recommends.
