Implant-Supported Dentures Brisbane

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures is a type of teeth replacement treatment that combines dentures with dental implants for increased stability and support while still allowing for the dentures to be taken in and out of the mouth.

Traditional dentures rest on the gums and rely on adhesives or suction to stay in place. Our implant-supported dentures, however, are anchored to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone, helping keep your teeth stabilised and in place.

Here’s How the Process Typically Works

Initial Consultation: Meeting Your Implant Dentist

All our implant treatment begins with a consultation with the implant dentist . During this visit, your oral health and overall medical history will be assessed. X-rays or other imaging will also be taken to evaluate the condition of your jawbone and determine your suitability for dental implants. Your implant dentist will discuss your treatment options, answer any questions you may have, and create a personalised treatment plan based on your specific needs.

First Surgery: Placing Implants in the Jawbone

Now that the treatment plan is established, the first surgery involves placing the dental implants into the jawbone. This is typically done under local anaesthesia, and the number of implants depends on factors such as the jaw’s condition and the type of denture being used. The implants are strategically placed to provide optimal support and stability for the denture.

Second Surgery: Exposing Implant Heads

After a healing period, during which the implants integrate with the jawbone (osseointegration), a second surgical procedure may be necessary to expose the implant heads. This step involves creating small incisions in the gum tissue to reveal the tops of the implants. The purpose of this is to prepare the implants for the attachment of abutments in the next phase.

Denture Try-In and Insertion

With the implants now in place and the healing process complete, the focus turns to the making and fitting of the custom denture. The implant dentist will take impressions of your mouth and create a denture that fits securely onto the implant abutments. We use a try-in phase so that we can ensure a proper fit, comfort, and aesthetics. This way we can make the necessary adjustments where needed. Once the denture is finalised, it is then securely attached to the implants.

Post-Care

Following the completion of your implant-supported dentures, it is important to maintain dental care to ensure the longevity and success of your new teeth. Patients are provided with instructions on oral hygiene practices and care for their new prosthetic. Our team will also schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the implant-supported denture’s stability, assess your overall oral health and address any concerns or adjustments needed.

Do Implant-Supported Dentures Come Out?

Two primary categories of implants exist: removable (implant-supported dentures) and fixed. Each offers distinct advantages.

Implant-Supported Dentures

  • Dentures can be taken out for cleaning and maintenance.
  • Dentures are securely attached to dental implants using various mechanisms such as ball attachments, locator attachments, or bar attachments.
  • While the denture firmly snaps onto the implants, they are easily removed by the wearer for regular cleaning and hygiene practices.
  • Removable feature simplifies oral care routines, allowing individuals to maintain optimal oral hygiene by cleaning both the denture and the supporting implants thoroughly.
  • Removable feature provides the flexibility to clean hard-to-reach areas.
  • May offer a cost-effective alternative for those seeking the benefits of implant stability without the permanence of a fixed prosthesis.

Fixed Dental Implants

  • Teeth are permanently attached to the jaw, creating a stable and secure foundation for the prosthetic teeth.
  • Teeth are affixed to the implants using abutment screws, resulting in a restoration that closely mimics the feel and function of natural teeth.
  • Fixed implants eliminate the need for daily removal, offering the convenience of a permanent solution.
  • Cleaning process may involve specialised oral hygiene practices.
  • Absence of daily removal contributes to increased comfort and confidence for individuals seeking a more permanent tooth replacement option.

The Difference Between All-on-4 and Implant-Supported Dentures

“All-On-4” and “implant-supported dentures” are both terms used in the field of dental prosthetics to describe solutions that combine dental implants with dentures. While they share the common goal of providing a stable and secure option for individuals with missing teeth, there are key differences between the 2 approaches.

Number of Implants

All-On-4: This technique involves the placement of 4 dental implants in a specific configuration within the jawbone. These implants are strategically placed to maximise support and stability for a full arch of teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures: The number of implants used in implant-supported dentures can vary. It may involve more than 4 implants, and the exact number depends on such factors as jawbone health, the type of denture, and your specific needs.

Implant Placement and Angulation

All-On-4: The 4 implants used in the All-On-4 technique are often placed at specific angles to take advantage of available bone and minimise the need for bone grafting. This approach aims to provide stability even in areas where bone volume might be limited.

Implant-Supported Dentures: The placement and angle of implants in implant-supported dentures can vary based on individual factors and the overall treatment plan. It may involve a more customised arrangement of implants to address specific jawbone conditions.

Immediate Loading

All-On-4: In some cases, All-On-4 procedures allow for the immediate loading of a temporary denture just days after the implant placement surgery. This can be advantageous for patients who desire a quicker transition to a functional set of teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures: While immediate loading is possible in certain implant-supported denture cases, it is not a universal feature. The decision to load the denture immediately depends on factors such as implant stability, bone quality, and the overall treatment plan.

Treatment Time and Process

All-On-4: All-On-4 is often promoted as a solution that can reduce the overall treatment time compared to traditional implant approaches. In many cases, complete teeth replacement surgery can take just 4-7 days to complete.

Implant-Supported Dentures: The treatment time for implant-supported dentures can vary based on individual factors, including the need for additional surgical steps, such as bone grafting or multiple implant placements. The overall process may take longer than All-On-4 in some cases.

What our patients say

Google Review

On my recent visit I took my little boy for his first dental experience. The staff were wonderful and hygienist Alex did an amazing job of making him feel comfortable and ensuring he had an enjoyable experience. He had no complaints and even talks about when we will go back to the dentist. As my dental experience as a child was terrible, I could not recommend Alex and the team highly enough for a visit for children to make them comfortable and a positive experience.

I went for a routine check up and clean as a new customer to the practice. From checking in (Abby) to the clean (Dr Chantal and Kian), everyone was very professional and thorough. A very comprehensive assessment was made and a meticulous clean was provided by Dr Chantal. Overall great dental experience and I will be back.

I am a white knuckle dental patient (a product of school mobile dental care back in the 1960’s) I had a crown installed all in one visit today (less than 3 hours). Totally painless. All staff were wonderful and highly empathetic to my issues. The practice is highly recommended, which is why I have been a patient at Kedron for the last 15 years.

I would definitely recommend Kedron family dental. The staff are first class.
Despite my fears, they definitely were calm and collected. Which helped me be calm too. I really appreciate the work of Dr Pj and assistant Gemma.
First class!! Thank you!!

I have been going to Kedron Family Dental for a while now and such positive experiences so far at the practice. Dr Chantal and the dental assistants that work there are fantastic - professional and takes good care of your oral health. I would keep going back despite having moved to the other side of the river :))

Elwynn has been my dentist for many years, and without a doubt is one of the best! Extremely professional and knowledgeable; but where he is really ahead of the rest, is the care and explanation he provides throughout any treatment or examination. Great to have him in the Brisbane area!
