Dental implants offer a world of difference to the frustrated denture-wearer. They will have you smiling more, eating almost any food you choose, and confidently enjoying social situations with friends and loved ones.

Imagine having your natural teeth back! Implants are as close as it gets. And you deserve to look and feel your best.

After living with dentures for 15 years, I decided to get implants. It was the best decision I ever made. Now I smile confidently, speak without lisping, and bite into anything I want to eat. Implants were a fantastic solution for me.

Why Dental Implants?
  • A conventional denture rests on your gums - which often causes slippage or pain when biting on hard foods. An implant-supported denture, on the other hand, is held firm by being attached to titanium implants that are placed in your gums providing you with the greatest stability possible while allowing you to eat almost any foods you love.
  • Implant-supported dentures are secured; they don't shift or slip and alleviate most of the common and painful complaints caused by conventional dentures.
  • Implants help preserve the precious bone under the gums that help keep the natural look of your face and lips avoiding the 'sunken-in' denture look many people experience as their jaw deteriorates with age.

When Menely showed me how my jaw was shrinking with dentures, I immediately made the leap to implants. They're not cheap – but they work far better than dentures, and now I look and feel years younger.

Types of Implant-Supported Dentures

  • Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day
  • Bar-Retained
  • Ball-Retained

Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day

This system uses only four implants to secure a special denture that looks and acts almost exactly as your natural teeth. It is less invasive and in the end, a much faster procedure when compared with traditional implants. Your new implant-supported denture is immediately placed over the implants minimizing swelling and virtually eliminating downtime. It provides you with the ability to smile and start using your new teeth - on the same day.

Designed in Europe, Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day has gained popularity worldwide. It is considered the most advanced tooth restoration procedure for people who have lost all their teeth or have failing teeth that need to be removed and simply don't want to wear dentures.

How Does it Rank?

On a scale of 0-100 (with 100 being your natural, secure teeth), dentures rank at 15. Permanent Teeth-in-a-Day rank at 95 – the most stable, secure, and comfortable of all implant solutions. And yes, it can all be completed in one day, followed by two or three follow-up appointments.

Bar-Retained

A thin metal bar that follows the curve of your jaw is attached to two to five implants that have been placed in your jawbone. Clips are fitted to either the bar, the denture, or both. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by the attachments.

On a scale of 0-100 (with 100 being your natural, secure teeth), dentures rank at 15. Bar-Retained Dentures rank at 80 – with much higher stability and bite force than regular dentures.

How Does it Rank?

Ball-Retained

Each implant in the jawbone holds a metal attachment (male) that fits into a similar attachment (female) on the denture. In most cases, the attachments on the implants are ball-shaped. The attachments resemble the "snap-on" buttons common on blouses.

On a scale of 0-100 (with 100 being your natural, secure teeth), dentures rank at 15. Ball-Retained Dentures rank at 60, depending on the number of locators chosen (Four locators and up is typical for added stability).

What makes Implant-Supported Dentures
and Dental Implants so Superior?
  • They Look and Feel Natural

    Dental implants are virtually the same as a new natural tooth. You can't "feel" them in your bone and they look and chew just like natural teeth.

  • No Movement

    As the implant fuses with the bone in the jaw, the denture is securely anchored preventing any chance of embarrassing movement in the mouth. Implant-supported teeth normalize speech and allow patients to regain their confidence when speaking in social settings.

  • No More Sore Spots

    Because your teeth are no longer resting and rubbing on your gums, you will no longer experience soreness in your mouth.

  • Stimulation of Bone Growth

    Dental implants, like natural teeth, help to stimulate bone growth through the titanium implants. These posts act as "nerve-endings", which your body believes is a real tooth, helping stimulate and preserve your jawbone rather than erode it with dentures. You will begin to look and feel years younger.

  • Improved Chewing & Digestion

    The ability to properly chew foods improves dramatically with dental implants. And with improved chewing comes better digestion and the ability to engage in a healthier diet.

  • Improved Taste Sensation

    Since dental implants are held securely to your gums, there's no need for that "suction" action on the roof of your mouth like in a regular denture. Implant-supported dentures don’t cover the roof of your mouth, so those vital taste receptors remain open to taste. Foods taste rich and delicious.

  • Long Lasting

    With proper care, implants can last a lifetime, and since implant-supported dentures are securely attached to the implants, there’s virtually no chance of losing your dentures either.
