Dental Implants Provide Denture Support

Have you been living with the pain and limited function of an ill-fitting denture? Without a secure and attractive smile, it can be almost impossible to enjoy a confident, social, and healthy life. Natural teeth are an important part of your oral health and function, so if you are missing all your teeth and wear a denture, the consequences of tooth loss are evident. Your loose dentures are a result of bone resorption that naturally occurs without the presence of natural teeth. You can choose to have your denture relined or you can opt for a more secure solution with dental implants.

Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Billy Laun and Dr. Frederick Gustave, have achieved the highest level of surgical training and are considered experts in dental implants and place over 600 dental implants a year. With state-of-the-art technology, proven techniques, and over 45 years of combined experience, we provide specialized treatment that is predictable and long-lasting to restore your confidence and quality of life!

The Dental Implant Treatment Process

Your treatment begins with a personalized consultation with our oral surgeons where you will discuss your current health and how implant supported overdentures in Carbondale, IL can improve your oral health and function. Most patients already qualify for implant supported dentures, but if bone loss has occurred in the jaw, bone grafting may be needed to ensure adequate support for the implants. We’ll take a CBCT scan and digital impressions of your mouth to begin surgical planning and the creation of your custom surgical guide and new denture (if necessary). Then we’ll schedule your dental implant placement appointment. Your surgery will be completed by our experienced oral surgeons in the comfort of our state-of-the-art office using real-time guidance from X-Guide® surgical technology. Using a minimally invasive and predictable approach with personalized anesthesia and guided implant technology ensures your treatment is comfortable and pain-free.

Dental implants are placed in areas of your jawbone that have the most density and volume, usually in the front portion of your jaw. Depending on your unique case, your denture will be secured to these implants with either a ball or bar attachment and can be removable for cleaning or permanently attached. Once your surgery is complete, you’ll need three or more months to heal and for the implants to integrate securely with your bone. During your healing phase, you’ll typically receive a temporary denture to wear until your final denture is complete.

Benefiting from a Stable Smile

  • Support for a secure and strong bite
  • Dentures won’t become loose or fall out
  • No need for pastes or adhesives
  • Stimulate healthy jawbone function
  • Eat a wider variety of foods
  • Look and feel more confident
  • Renewed sense of well-being

How Much Do Implant Supported Dentures Cost?

With additional security in the form of dental implants, this solution naturally costs more than traditional dentures. However, considering the advantages noted above, these differences can actually save you time and money in the long run. Traditional dentures require frequent relines and adjustments to remain secure and avoid painful side effects. Beyond the cost of these treatments, returning for these new appliances can require the hassle of multiple appointments.

Implant supported dentures can not only last years longer than traditional dentures but will also improve your diet and overall health as well, leading to a decrease in systemic complications later.
