What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Complete or partial removable dentures require messy adhesives to stay in your mouth, but implant-supported dentures are anchored with titanium posts in your jawbone for a much more secure fit. This ensures that the dentures will not slip out of place, even when you are eating or talking. Implant-supported dentures are an attractive teeth replacement option that can be used just like your natural teeth. At Washington Elite Dentistry, you can get implanted dentures that are custom-made and comfortable.

What Are the Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures in Washington, DC at Washington Elite Dentistry present a logical solution for patients who desire a sturdy tooth replacement that looks natural. A few of the key benefits include:

  • Steady fit and decreased likelihood of sensitive areas or tenderness
  • May elevate a patient's confidence
  • Help people easily chew a vast spectrum of foods
  • Won't shift while speaking or eating because implant-supported dentures lock in place
  • Sturdy, long-lasting treatment
  • Help stop jawbone deterioration that might arise with conventional dentures

If you're currently using removable dentures or need dentures to replace most of your teeth, implant-supported dentures may be an ideal solution for you. Unlike removable dentures, implanted dentures do not need adhesives or soaking. Implant dentures have fewer restrictions on what you can eat and drink than removable dentures, and they can be cleaned like natural teeth. The implanted post mimics the natural tooth root, so your jawbone and gums are less likely to atrophy. Dr. Bernan will examine your oral health at your appointment to determine if your jawbone and gums are strong enough to hold the implants. If needed, bone and/or gum grafts can be performed to strengthen specific areas before the implants are placed.

What Can I Expect from Implant-Supported Dentures?

Prior to any treatment, one of our dentists will perform a thorough dental exam, which includes taking digital x-rays to assess the health of your gums and jawbone. If your jawbone or gums are too weak to hold the implants, a gum and/or bone graft surgery might be needed. As soon as the area is fully healed, the implants can be placed.

You will be given local anesthesia to numb your mouth before the procedure. Other sedation options may be discussed if you have any fear or anxiety. We will make surgical incisions in your gums and place implants in the holes in the jawbone. For dentures, at least four implants are used for each arch. The incisions will be stitched with part of the implanted post showing above the gumline. A temporary denture will cover the posts as they heal over 4 – 6 months. The implants will integrate with your gums and jaw. Once the posts are fully healed, your custom dentures can be attached to the implanted posts and fitted.

As someone who’s been a returning customer of theirs for a few years, I can say with complete confidence that WED continues to be the best of its kind! First, I’ll say that the location is convenient & easily accessible with it being right near Metro Center Station. Dr. Berman remains the best at her job, always being friendly & having a positive attitude while ensuring every procedure is completed without issues. One of their awesome staff members by the name of Marina handled my deep cleaning & is very passionate about her job. You can tell as soon as you meet her & she has this very creative way of holding you accountable for your oral hygiene that I very much like. I also have to mention Michelle, their receptionist as well. She’s very kind, knowledgeable on everything they do & will share her own personal experiences that can help ease your anxiety so when you leave, you’ll be reassured and in a much better mood than when you came in. They’re also very flexible on payment options so you don’t have to worry about paying unreasonably large amounts of money right away. To anyone who’s wants a clean, welcoming, & affordable dentistry with an overall amazing staff, I heavily encourage you to try WED!

I had my dental work done in Serbia recently. I had a couple of issues and had to get it checked by the dentist ASAP ! Made my appointment through a friend! She highly recommended the Washington Elite Dentistry ! The front desk was able to squeeze me on the same day since it was emergency-thank you, Michelle! Dr Berman took a first look, and she was very clear about what was going on and what should be done. We did x-rays and ct scan on site. After her, Dr. Khashayar checked me as well, and he clarified situations about my implants. Any future work from now on I am doing here! Thank you

About Us
How long does the implant-supported denture procedure take?

The duration of the implant-supported denture procedure can vary depending on individual needs and healing times. Initially, the dental implants are placed, which requires a healing period of a few months for them to integrate with the jawbone. After this, the dentures are fitted, making the total process time span from several months to over a year.

Is getting implant-supported dentures painful?

Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during the implant-supported denture procedure. At Washington Elite Dentistry, local anesthesia is used during implant placement to ensure comfort. Post-procedure, some soreness may be expected, but this is usually manageable with prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers.

How do I care for my implant-supported dentures?

Caring for implant-supported dentures involves regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups. It's important to clean around the implants and under the denture to prevent plaque buildup. Washington Elite Dentistry provides detailed aftercare instructions to maintain the health and longevity of your implant-supported dentures.
