What Are Implant Dentures?
Implant dentures are the perfect solution for replacing missing teeth. Traditional dentures are made out of an acrylic base that looks like gum tissue, along with natural-looking porcelain or acrylic teeth that are attached to the acrylic base; they are removable and rest on top of the gum line. Denture implants, however, consist of traditional dentures attached to titanium implants, so they are secured directly to the jawbone. They are a good solution for those who have lost all of their teeth but still have enough remaining jawbone to support the titanium implants. They are particularly helpful on the lower jaw, where traditional dentures are far less stable and can become uncomfortable and even painful over time.
Implant dentures can be either removable or fixed for a more permanent solution. There are two main types of implant-supported dentures:
The Implant Procedure
The amount of time it takes for the complete implant procedure varies according to which teeth you are replacing and the condition of the remaining gums and jawbones. On average, it takes five months to complete the lower jaw and seven months to complete the upper jaw; however, it can take up to a year or more.
