Am I a candidate for implant dentures?
Several factors determine if someone is a candidate for implant dentures. These include:
- Jawbone density: Implant dentures require a strong and healthy jawbone to securely anchor the implants. If you have lost bone density due to periodontal disease or tooth loss, a bone graft may be necessary.
- Overall health: People with certain medical conditions may not be good candidates for dental implants.
- Smoking and alcohol use: It can negatively affect the healing and integration of dental implants.
- Oral hygiene: Good oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing regularly, are essential for the success of dental implants.
It’s important to consult your dentist to determine if implant dentures are the right choice for you. Schedule an appointment today so we can evaluate your oral health, discuss any concerns, and create a personalized treatment plan to achieve the best results.
What to expect from implant dentures?
- Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and bone structure to begin the implant process.
- If a bone graft is necessary, the procedure will be performed to strengthen the jaw and prepare it for the implant.
- After the bone graft has healed, the implant will be inserted into the jawbone.
- The final step of the restoration process involves attaching a custom-made denture to the implant.
After the procedure is complete, we’ll provide you with follow-up care instructions to help the area heal properly.

Frequently asked questions about implant dentures
What distinguishes implant-supported dentures from traditional dentures?
Traditional dentures are designed to sit on top of the gums and can be removed as needed. However, even when properly fitted, they may still shift while speaking or eating. This can result in malnourishment and declining overall health due to discomfort and irritation caused by improper fit. In contrast, implant-supported dentures reduce movement and allow for improved comfort and function. Effective chewing, which is crucial for maintaining a healthy diet, is also enhanced by implant-supported dentures. Additionally, they offer aesthetic and psychological benefits as they more closely resemble natural teeth
Is it possible to switch from traditional dentures to implant-supported dentures?
Even if you have been wearing traditional dentures for a long time, you can still be a candidate for dental implants. It’s uncommon for dental implants not to be an option for improving your oral health, self-assurance, and chewing ability.
Is it possible to receive implant-supported dentures while retaining some natural teeth?
Yes, it’s possible. Most individuals who are eligible for implant-supported dentures typically have a history of multiple missing teeth, persistent dental issues like gum disease, cavities, extensive crown work, failed bridges, or partial dentures. They have reached a stage in their dental health where opting for a full arch of teeth supported by dental implants is deemed the optimal solution.
