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 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.

Very happy I stumbled upon Washington Elite Dentistry! The staff was friendly, attentive and even made sure I scheduled a follow up appointment for soon after.
Dr. Berman and her staff are the best! I hadn’t been back to work in DC since Covid in 2020 and they got me right in for a cleaning. I have had painful experiences with dentists in the past but I feel safe and comfortable under Dr. Berman’s care. I appreciate the entire staff, from dental assistants to the front office, they take time to explain procedures & costs to you and work with you to achieve the most favorable outcome. I highly recommend them.
Top notch, one stop shop for all your dental needs. Modern office, close to the Metro, staff clearly dedicated to superior customer service skills.
Dr. Berman and her staff are extremely personable and they worked extra hard to make sure my filling was perfect.

Implant-Supported Dentures FAQs
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.
