The Implant-Retained Denture Process
In the following video, Brent Bradford, DDS, outlines the process involved in successfully installing dental implants that will support your new denture.
The implant-retained denture process begins with a complimentary consultation where we conduct a CT scan. This scan is crucial as it allows us to assess your bone structure and determine the optimal placement for the implants. Should you require both upper and lower dentures, we will initiate the denture fabrication process prior to the placement of the implants.
Working closely with our dental lab, we create dentures tailored to your mouth. This part of the process typically takes six to nine weeks from start to finish. Once your custom dentures are ready, we’ll schedule an appointment for the implant placement. During this visit, we will securely insert the implants into your jawbone. The dentures are then equipped with housings that allow them to snap onto the implants, providing a stable and secure fit.
After the procedure, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your new dentures, including how to remove, clean, and maintain them to ensure everything stays in optimal condition. The journey to implant-retained dentures begins with the first step: reaching out to us for your free consultation. We’re here to guide you through each phase of the process.
