Interested in implant-supported dentures? Dental implant-supported dentures are a superior choice and offer stability and ease. In fact, having implant supported dentures feels like having natural teeth.
I wanted my patients to have all of the facts and so I wrote an e-book entitled: A Patient's Guide to Dental Implants, which provides information on implant supported dentures to be discussed with a denturist. Below is an excerpt.
Once it's been determined that you are a candidate for implant supported dentures, the next steps are choosing the right type of dentures and finding the a denturist with the right skill set that also makes you feel comfortable.
Types of Implant-Supported Dentures:
Beach Denture Clinic recommends three types of implant-supported dentures:
- Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day (also known as All-on-FourTM)
Each implant supported denture has a different feature and is used in different circumstances. They can also be rated on comfort, effectiveness and 'natural look'. Which is the best choice is something to be discussed with your denturist.
Finding the right denturist:
Implant-supported dentures are an investment in your dental health and smile, so it’s important that you take your time to find the right denturist, and get the best plan of action for success. It’s well worth the wait to do it the correct way than rush into it and run into surprises.

I’ve had patients who’ve been in the unfortunate situation where their treatment provider did not properly plan the treatment, and it is then very difficult and costly to fix the errors. Proper planning and an experienced denturist can help avoid wasted time, unnecessary pain, and soaring costs.
I don't describe myself as a ‘Denture Specialist’, I consider myself somewhat of an artist with a technical skill that allows me to create not only a long lasting, durable smile, but one that is beautiful, natural-looking, and crafted to the exact dimensions of your face to make sure you look and feel your best.
Combined with my 30 years experience in denture fabrication, I regularly attend professional workshops and courses in dental implantology.
But I'm sure you have questions and so you should.
To help you choose a denturist, I’ve included a handy checklist of questions to ask during your initial consultation. Use these as your first step in preparing for your future with implant-supported dentures. You won’t regret being prepared!
These are the questions, I would want asked of me:
- How many dental implant procedures have your performed, and what is your success rate?
- What's your education and training in dental implant treatment?
- Which type of implant-supported dentures do you recommend for me and why?
- What steps are involved in the process and where and by whom are they performed?
Every discussion on implant supported dentures begins with a free consultation. That's where I take a look in your mouth and rough out a plan. We also take a moment to discuss your expectations and what you would like as an end result.
