Implant dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures or overdentures, are a secure and stable solution for individuals who are missing a significant number of teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, which rely on adhesives or suction, implant dentures are anchored in place by dental implants.

The process typically involves the following steps:

Dental Implant Placement: Dental implants, which are titanium posts, are surgically placed into the jawbone. The number of implants varies depending on the specific case.

Healing and Osseointegration: Over a few months, the implants undergo a process called osseointegration, during which they fuse with the surrounding jawbone, providing a stable foundation for the dentures.

Abutment Placement: Once osseointegration is complete, abutments (connector pieces) are attached to the implants. These abutments serve as attachment points for the dentures.

Denture Fabrication: Customized dentures are created to fit precisely over the abutments. They can be either removable or fixed, depending on the patient's preference and the specific treatment plan.

Implant dentures offer several advantages, including increased stability, improved chewing ability, enhanced comfort, and prevention of bone loss in the jaw. They provide a more natural and secure solution compared to traditional dentures, promoting long-term oral health and overall well-being. Consulting with a qualified implant dentist is essential to determine candidacy and create a personalized treatment plan.
