Implant Supported Dentures
Flower Mound, TX


Elderly woman with implant supported dentures enjoying her new smile from Jonathan J. Golab, DDS, PA in Flower Mound, TXWhile traditional dentures, complete and partial, have been used for many years to provide patients with a replacement option, modern dentistry has led to several great developments. Our professionals at Jonathan J. Golab, DDS, PA still offer complete and partial dentures, but they also offer many other great services that are a better option for most patients. One of these restorations is called implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures marry some design features of traditional dentures with the stability and performance of dental implants.

Are Implant Supported Dentures Better Than Traditional Dentures?


Traditional dentures are still a great restoration option for some of our patients. With that said, implant-supported dentures do offer several distinct benefits to you that cannot be achieved with traditional dentures. The most apparent benefit is that they offer added stability because of the strength and support provided by the implant posts. This allows you to apply more force when biting down, making it easier to enjoy hearty foods that you love.

Implant-supported dentures also eliminate the need for messy adhesives and cleaning supplies. Implant-supported dentures are fixed and are cleaned much like your natural teeth. This means brushing twice per day and flossing daily, as well as receiving regular oral exams from our team. During these exams, our team will check your dentures for damage and make any necessary adjustments to maximize your comfort.

How Are They Installed?


Implant-supported dentures are installed in a similar manner to regular dental implants. Our team installs titanium posts into your jawbone and then affixes the dentures to the posts. However, regular implants require that a separate post be installed for every crown. Implant-supported dentures are grouped into sections, meaning each post supports multiple teeth.

This installation process means that you will have significantly fewer posts placed into your jawbone. Usually, implant-supported dentures are grouped into four symmetrical sections, each requiring at least one post to support it. These posts are slightly larger than regular implant posts because they are supporting a larger structure. The reduced number of posts also helps for a quicker recovery because there is less trauma caused to your oral cavity.

How Long Do They Last?


Implant-supported dentures last roughly as long as dental implants. The titanium posts will last the rest of your life and will never need to be replaced. Dentures will last approximately 10 years but can last longer with proper care and maintenance. Some patients are able to enjoy their implant-supported dentures for as long as 20 years.

Implant-supported dentures last longer and are more durable than traditional dentures. They are less prone to damage and do not need to be repaired as frequently. When they do need replacement, our team can easily remove them from the posts and create new replacement dentures.

If you have suffered from tooth loss or tooth decay, then you may be a good candidate for implant-supported dentures.

Golab, DDS, PA and let us get you started on your journey to a brand new smile. You can schedule an appointment by calling our office at (469)444-7919 today.
