What Are Implant Supported Dentures? 

If you’re missing most or all of your natural teeth, or suffering from periodontal disease, you have several replacement options: 

Full arch implant treatment


Uses 4 or more surgically implanted titanium implants to support an entire row of fixed prosthetic teeth.

Implant-supported dentures

snap-in smile or snap-in dentures

Typically uses 2 or more surgically implanted titanium implants to secure a set of removable overdentures. 

Since fewer implants are required for implant-supported dentures, they’re an ideal option for patients with more extensive bone loss. They look and function like natural teeth, and unlike dentures, there’s no risk of them slipping or falling out. Dental implants are also far more comfortable than dentures, which can rub or cut the gums. 

Regardless of the type of implant used, dental implants are a much more effective (and permanent) solution for tooth replacement than bridges or dentures. 

What to Know About the Dental Implant Procedure

We’ll start with a thorough examination and evaluation of your overall health. If you have broken or damaged teeth within the arch you’re replacing, these may need to be extracted. We’ll also take digital 3D x-rays, so we can evaluate the density of your bone and determine whether bone grafting is necessary. 

Afterward, we’ll take a digital impression of your mouth and some measurements for our lab. We’ll place the dental implants, and once your jaw can support the implant, attach your new teeth. Implant supported dentures generally last 15 years or more with proper care, while the implants themselves are permanent. To keep your prosthesis in good condition, it’s important to follow Dr. Carter’s instructions and avoid eating excessively hard foods that can damage them. 

The Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures

Traditional dentures require periodic realignment due to the bone atrophy that occurs with tooth loss. Implant-supported dentures rarely need adjustments because they help retain jawbone density. 

Other benefits include:

Enhanced function

The stability of implant-supported dentures allows you to enjoy a wider range of foods than traditional dentures. 


Since the dentures are fixed to implants, there’s less risk of losing or breaking them. The implants themselves can last a lifetime with proper care. 

Ease of oral hygiene

Caring for your implant supported dentures is similar to caring for your natural teeth. 

Better stability and a more natural appearance

Traditional dentures are held in place on the gums with adhesive, which can lose effectiveness throughout the day and lead to slipping. In contrast, implant-supported dentures are attached directly to the jaw, like natural teeth. Not only does this allow for a more natural appearance, but it also prevents the dentures from shifting. 

Better aesthetics and fit for a full mouth replacement

Traditional dentures often don’t fit as well on the lower jaw as the upper jaw; implant-supported dentures fit on both the upper and lower jaws equally well, allowing for better overall aesthetics. 


Additional Dental Implant Services

In addition to implant-supported dentures and full-mouth dental implants, we also offer:

  • Traditional implants to replace one or more missing teeth 
  • Milled zirconia abutments for an aesthetic alternative to titanium
  • Implant revisions to replace damaged or failing implants
  • Aesthetic implants for teeth that are misshapen or discolored
