Implant-Supported Dentures in Edmonton

Implant-supported dentures are complete or partial dentures that are attached to dental implants. A dental implant is a device (made from titanium, a metal alloy that the body readily accepts) inserted into the jaw to support a prosthetic tooth or teeth, acting like an artificial tooth root. Over time, the jawbone integrates (fuses) with the implant surface, providing a firm anchor to support a denture. Northview Denture Clinic provides implant-supported dentures in Edmonton and the surrounding area.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

The benefits of implant-supported dentures are:

They are the closest replacement to natural teeth.

They help preserve your jaw bones.

They can eliminate the pain caused by poor-fitting dentures.

They can help to regain your confidence to smile again.

They offer stability to dentures placed on ridges that are severely resorbed and unable to properly support a denture (most commonly found on the lower ridge.)

They are more affordable than you may think.

Please contact our office for a consultation to see if implant-supported dentures are right for you.

FAQ Section

Here are some questions you may have:

  • Why see a denturist for my dentures?
    A denturist personally deals with every step of fabricating your dentures, from the initial consultation to the aftercare and adjustments. We personally fabricate your dentures in an onsite laboratory, allowing us to ensure quality construction of your appliance. Denturists specialize in denture fabrication and maintenance and can assist you in any of your denture-related needs.
  • Do I still need to have annual exams?
    Yes. Even though you have dentures, you should still see your dental professionals regularly. Your denturist can monitor the condition of your oral cavity and dentures, ensuring proper fit and oral health. It is also recommended that you see your dentist regularly so that they can take radiographs to assess the health of your bones and oral cavity.
  • How long will my dentures last?
    Over time, dentures will need to be relined or re-made due to normal wear or changes in the condition of your tissues. Bone and gum ridges can resorb due to aging, weight loss, loss of natural teeth, and disease or illness. Loose dentures can cause health problems, including sores and infections, not to mention discomfort. A loose or ill-fitting denture can also make eating and speaking more difficult. It is important to replace worn or poorly-fitting dentures before they cause problems. Most standard dentures require relining after two years and replacement after five years. Your denturist can assess the condition of your existing dentures and recommend which procedure will benefit you the most.
  • Do I need to remove my dentures?
    Yes. Dentures are meant to be worn throughout the day and removed while you sleep. Removing the dentures relieves the pressure on your tissues and ridges, prevents damage to dentures if you clench or grind your teeth, and will allow your tissues to rest while you sleep.
  • Will dentures affect my speech?
    A new set of dentures will take a bit of time to get used to. Reading aloud, talking to family and friends, and repeating difficult words or phrases will help. Soon, you will be speaking normally again.
  • Will my dentures be comfortable?
    New dentures may feel awkward or even uncomfortable for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheeks and tongue learn to keep them in place. It is not unusual to experience minor irritation or soreness during this period. You may also find that saliva flow temporarily increases. As your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures, these problems should diminish. It is also common for irritation to develop if your dentures require relining or replacement. If any problems persist, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult your denturist.
