Denture Stabilization

Research shows that millions of people are missing most or all of their teeth. This tooth loss could be due to decay, trauma, gum disease, or just a natural part of aging. Many patients choose to replace their missing teeth with dentures. While dentures do allow you to chew, eat, and speak normally, as well as improve your confidence, they are not the most comfortable tooth replacement solution.
Traditional dentures sit on top of your gums and often slip and slide around in the mouth- even with denture adhesive. Denture stabilization is an effective method for preventing these issues and securing dentures in place.

Denture stabilization is the process of having dental implants inserted into the jawbone to offer better support for dentures.

Types of Implant-Retained Dentures

At Luminescence Dentistry, we offer several options forimplant-retained dentures based on your needs:

Partial Dentures

For patients who are missing some teeth and the remaining teeth are healthy, we recommend partial dentures. Partials can be permanently fixed in place with the implants, or they can be removable just like traditional dentures. If they are fixed in place, only the dentist can remove them for cleaning. On the other hand, if they are removable, you will need to take them out at night to let your gums rest and clean them.

Full Dentures

For patients who are missing all of their teeth or whose remaining teeth require extraction, we recommend full/complete dentures. These can also be fixed or removable. If they are fixed in place, only the dentist will be able to remove them during your regular cleaning/exam appointment. If they are removable, you will treat them like traditional dentures and remove them for sleeping.

Same-Day Dentures

Same-day implant dentures allow patients to replace missing teeth without having to wait several months for the bone to fuse with the implant. There are advantages and disadvantages to this solution. This is an innovative tooth replacement solution involving implants, abutments, and either a partial or complete denture.
The primary benefit is that everything can be done in the same appointment, so you don’t have to commit to several months or more of treatment. The biggest disadvantage is that they require more care while healing takes place.

Snap-on Dentures

Snap-on dentures are a permanent solution for patients who are missing teeth.

Benefits of Snap-on Dentures

When compared with traditional dentures, snap-on dentures are superior in several ways, such as:

Stability: snap-on dentures are secured with dental implants, which means they won’t slip around in the mouth like traditional dentures.
Improve chewing: since the dentures are held in place with implants, you can chew stickier, harder foods
Comfort: snap-indentures are designed to fit better and since they don’t move around like traditional dentures, you don’t have to worry about friction and pressure sores on your gums
Better aesthetics: since they are held in place, snap-on dentures look more natural than traditional dentures
Jawbone preservation: without tooth roots, your jawbone begins to deteriorate. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots, so your jawbone is stimulated and remains healthy

Implant-Retained Dentures FAQs

Patients who are missing all or most of their teeth typically choose traditional dentures because they are the most affordable. We believe that implant-retained dentures are the best option because they look, feel, and function the most like natural teeth. However, patients often have questions. Below are a few of the common questions we hear at Luminescence Dentistry in Dallas.

What are implant dentures?

Implant dentures are a tooth replacement solution that uses dental implants to hold the denture in place. Implant dentures can be permanent, which means only the dentist can remove them, or they can be removable, which means they must be removed at night for cleaning.

Does insurance cover implant dentures?

Every policy is different, but since implant dentures also restore functionality, some providers do cover a portion of the procedure. Our office staff will work with your provider to determine coverage.

Do I need implant dentures?

Implant dentures offer several benefits over conventional dentures. For one, they are secured in place, so you don’t have to worry about them slipping around or falling out when you are speaking, chewing, or laughing. Plus, the implants provide more stability, so you don’t have to change your diet.
