Implant-Supported DenturesDavid J. on receiving the best care at Lakewood Dental Centre
Implant-supported dentures are molded to look like natural teeth and gums. Instead of resting on your gums like conventional denture and staying put with denture adhesives, they’re supported by a bar attached to dental implants. This creates a firm hold and can reduce gum irritation. The bar attachment makes it easy to snap the denture in and out for cleaning and before you go to sleep for the night.
The Dentures Process
If you’re interested in an implant-supported denture, you’ll first need to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists. We’ll conduct a full exam to discuss the health of your gums and jawbone to make sure they’re able to support dental implants. If you have any remaining teeth that must be removed before you can wear a denture, we can schedule an appointment for tooth extraction.
If you are a good candidate for an implant-supported denture, you’ll want to maintain good oral hygiene after receiving them by:
- Cleaning your dentures using a soft toothbrush and denture-specific cleanser
- Using a soft toothbrush to gently brush your gums and the inside of your mouth twice a day
- Continuing to see us twice a year for dental cleanings and exams
