Implant-Retained Dentures – Parsippany, NJ

Stable, Strong, & Long-Lasting Restorations

Traditional dentures are a great solution for some patients, but not all. Some patients become irritated that their restorations slip and shift in their mouth while they’re talking or chewing food, creating embarrassing and inconvenient moments. With implant-retained dentures in Parsippany, you won’t have to worry about that at all. These are restorations secured to dental implants that are fused with your jawbone, allowing them to replace the entire structure of your missing teeth while providing extra stability and strength to your smile.

How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?

Dental implants paired with dentures offer a comprehensive solution which takes care of the tooth’s roots as well as the visible crowns. An overdenture snaps onto dental implants that are surgically placed beneath the gum line. Once here, the implant posts provide a sturdy foundation for the prosthetic teeth. This method can be used in the upper or lower jaw, but is especially effective for a lower denture, which commonly causes issues with fit.

Am I A Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?

Not every patient is a good candidate for implant-retained dentures, which is why it’s vital to visit our office for a consultation before you set your mind on getting them. During your visit, we’ll examine X-rays of your facial structure, conduct a visual inspection of your mouth, and go over your medical history, looking for signs that indicate you may not be a good candidate, including:

Although these factors don’t make you an ideal candidate at the moment, there are procedures and treatments you can get that may make you a good candidate down the road, such as a bone graft or gum disease therapy. 

The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure

Once you have become a good candidate, we can begin the process by scheduling your dental implant surgery. After your implants have been placed, you’ll undergo a several month-long healing process where they will naturally fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Then, you’ll be ready to have your abutments placed. After this appointment, you’ll need to heal for a few weeks until we’re able to place your final, permanent denture to complete your smile.
