Implant-supported dentures are a dental prosthesis (dentures) that are fixed in the mouth with the help of implants. Unlike traditional dentures, which are held in place with adhesive, implant-supported dentures are fixed in place and stable while in the mouth, but are also able to be removed easily.
Your New Smile at Dallas Dental Arts
The treatment procedure for implant-supported dentures requires several steps. First, dental surgery is required for implant placement. After the implant sites have healed, Dr. Allen takes impressions to make the dentures, as well as the abutments, which are the parts that attach the denture to the implants.
At Dallas Dental Arts, you entire implant-supported denture procedure is done from the convenience of our Dallas dental office. Our periodontist, Dr. Margolin, will perform the dental surgery to place your implants. Our prosthodontist, Dr. Allen, will coordinate your care and make sure the denture is fabricated correctly.
As board-certified specialists, Drs. Allen and Margolin care deeply about your needs and wants, and strive to do the absolute best that they can, all while making sure you are completely comfortable and understand every step of your treatment.
Denture and Implant Care
Home care for your implant-supported dentures is easy. You are able to remove the dentures to clean them, as well as clean the gums around the dental implants. Visits to our Dallas dental office allow Dr. Allen and your hygienist to monitor the health of your gums and jawbone, and the fit of your dentures. When kept healthy and properly functional, your implants and dentures can last a lifetime.
