Implant Supported Dentures

If you’re tired of dealing with loose or uncomfortable traditional dentures, visit Moorooka Dental Care for the ultimate solution for stability and comfort.

What Are Implant Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are similar to traditional dentures, but they are held in place by dental implants. Dental implants are small screws that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. Implant-supported dentures are more stable than traditional dentures and they do not require any adhesive. However, implant-supported dentures are more expensive than traditional dentures and they require surgery.

Who Needs Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are typically recommended for individuals who have lost multiple teeth, especially when traditional dentures don’t provide the needed stability.

Those dissatisfied with the discomfort, movement, or difficulty associated with regular dentures might find relief with implant-supported versions. This option is particularly beneficial for those seeking a secure tooth replacement that doesn’t rely on adhesives, as well as for individuals with bone loss in the jaw.

Implant-supported dentures improve quality of life by restoring confidence, appearance, and normal oral functions like eating and speaking. However, candidacy depends on factors like oral health, bone density, and overall health, so consultation with a dental professional is essential to determine the best solution.

How Are Implant-Supported Dentures Placed?

The placement of implant-supported dentures involves a multi-step process that combines dental expertise, careful planning, and surgical precision. Here’s an overview of the steps:

Initial Consultation and Treatment Planning

The process begins with a thorough consultation with your dentist. During this appointment, your oral health, medical history, and specific needs are assessed to determine if you are a suitable candidate for implant-supported dentures.

If implant-supported dentures are deemed appropriate for you, a personalised treatment plan is created. This plan includes the number and location of dental implants needed, as well as the type of denture that will be used.

Implant Placement

The next step is the surgical placement of the dental implants. This involves the insertion of small titanium posts into the jawbone. The number of implants placed depends on the type of implant-supported denture you are getting—partial or full arch. Local anaesthesia is used to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Healing Period (Osseointegration)

After implant placement, there is a healing period during which osseointegration occurs. Osseointegration is the process in which the dental implants fuse with the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for the denture. This process typically takes several months, allowing the implants to become fully integrated and secure.

Abutment Placement

Once osseointegration is complete, abutments (small connector pieces) are attached to the dental implants. The abutments protrude through the gumline and serve as anchor points for the denture.

Denture Fabrication and Final Placement

Impressions or digital scans are taken of your mouth to create a custom denture that fits perfectly over the abutments. The denture is designed to match the appearance of natural teeth and provide optimal function and aesthetics.

The custom denture is then attached to the abutments. The denture snaps onto the abutments securely, providing stability and comfort. Your dentist will ensure that the denture fits well and functions properly.

How Long Do Implant-Supported Dentures Last?

The longevity of implant-supported dentures varies depending on factors like oral hygiene, overall health, implant quality, and adherence to dental care recommendations.

With proper care and maintenance, implant-supported dentures can endure for many years, often spanning decades. Consistent oral hygiene practices, regular dental check-ups, implant quality, bone health, and following usage guidelines all contribute to extending the lifespan of these dentures.

While wear and tear might require occasional replacement of attachments, open communication with your dental team and diligent care practices can help ensure the lasting success of your implant-supported dentures.

I had the most amazing experience. I was nervous about my dental treatment but when I got here they explained it to me and I was put at ease. The work done was amazing and I won't hesitate to return to this clinic. Dr Zaheer and his team were very professional and caring.

I also found his front desk staff Fatimatu and Frances to be very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this clinic.

I had my best dental practice at Moorooka Dental Care! I was very afraid to go to the dentist before I came to this practice. I had a really good experience at this clinic.

Dr Linh was wonderful. She explained the whole treatment and answered all my questions. I also met Frances the receptionist. She was very friendly and made me feel welcome. I had an amazing experience and highly recommend Moorooka Dental Care.

The whole team are such a lovely bunch of people! Dr Tina and Casey (I think it's Casey.. correct me if I'm wrong) work so well together and had me laughing before and after my dental work. Everyone is really kind here, from owner to reception staff. I know I'm in good hands when I visit 🙂

I had the pleasure of having my dental work done at Moorooka dental care. It has been an amazing experience, Fatimatu at reception was extremely helpful. I was treated by Dr Furqan today and I found him very professional and gentle. I've also seen Dr Reza and Dr Zaheer and found them to be extremely good. I will highly recommend this practice.

Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.

This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.

Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks

Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza. Both are excellent professionals. They took the time to explain the procedures and the subsequent cares. I even got a follow up call from the practice manager, Ahmed, the next day. I highly recommend them!
