Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures 

Thousands of patients with missing teeth enjoy the advantages of dentures supported by dental implants, noting an overall improvement in their confidence and quality of life. Other benefits include:

Improved Dental Function

Implant-supported dentures offer a stable solution that allows patients to eat their favorite foods with ease. Additionally, many patients find their ability to speak clearly is vastly improved when compared to traditional dentures.

Jaw Preservation

Because dental implants serve as artificial teeth roots, they encourage bone growth and prevent the jawbone recession that accompanies tooth loss.

Maintain an Optimal Fit

Because implants prevent changes in the shape and density of the jaw, you can expect to need fewer adjustments in order to maintain the right fit.

Maximize Aesthetics

By retaining bone tissue in the jaw, implants also help prevent a sunken and aged facial appearance. Your denture will also be designed to look indistinguishable from healthy teeth.

Prevent Gum Erosion

Unlike their traditional counterpart, dental implant-retained dentures do not shift or rub against the gums. This not only improves comfort but also prevents gum recession over time.

A Stable, Durable Foundation

Implant-supported dentures offer maximum stability by attaching directly to implants in the jawbone. Unlike traditional dentures, these are a more stable alternative. The implants keep the dentures in place at all times, allowing patients to live life unimpeded by the shortcomings of traditional solutions.

A Closer Look at the Treatment Process

It is important to remember that dental implant treatment is often performed in phases. Here is what a typical implant-supported dentures timeline looks like:

Implant Placement

The implants are placed directly into the jaw during a minor surgical procedure. The dentist will provide anesthesia and sedation is available to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the process.

​Osseointegration and Healing

After surgery, the jawbone will fuse with the implants in a process called osseointegration. This process typically takes four to six months. In the meantime, the dentist will provide you with a temporary denture.

Abutments

When healing is complete, connectors called abutments will be attached to the implants. These will remain accessible above the gum line to connect your denture to the implant posts.

Impressions

Once the abutments are in place, we will take molds of your dental arches. These impressions will be sent to a trusted dental lab for the fabrication of your permanent denture.

​Restoration

Once it is ready, your custom denture will be secured to the implants. The dentist will make any necessary adjustments to the restoration so the finished product will fit properly and look completely natural. 

Am I a Good Candidate?

The only way to know for sure if you qualify for dental implants is to meet with Dr. Casey for a consultation. When you visit our Montreal dental office, the doctor will assess your gums and any remaining natural teeth, as well as review x-rays to determine the health of the underlying structures. In order for implants to be successful, you must have good overall oral health. and strong underlying bone structure.

Patients with insufficient bone tissue may need to undergo a preparatory procedure, such as a bone graft or a sinus lift. Dr. Casey will help you decide what type of dentures are the right replacement for your natural teeth based on your goals, budget, health, and other factors.
