For patients who are missing several teeth or even a complete arch of teeth, our periodontists might suggest the use of implant-supported dentures for stability, natural performance and appearance. Here at Skyline Implants & Periodontics, we offer All-on-4 dental implants and "teeth in a day" services to rehabilitate function in your mouth. These services will take considerably less time than regular implant procedures and are completed all in one visit.

Overdentures are a great option for patients who would prefer to have fewer implants. These dentures fit over two to four dental implants and will attach to a bar that has been fixed to natural teeth or an implant post for extra stability. Overdentures can be easily removed by the patient for cleaning and they will snap back into place for added secureness during the rest of your day-to-day activities. This will help improve function in your mouth and restore your speaking abilities.
Screw-retained dentures are mounted to dental implant posts, removable by the doctor when needed. These dentures can require four to six dental implants, or All-on-4 implants. Hybrid dentures like these include the stability of regular implant posts and can also be easily taken off for cleaning. To ensure you never have to spend time without teeth or dentures, our "teeth in a day" procedures involve the removal of your teeth and the placement of your new implants all in one appointment. On the very same day you come in for your procedure, you can leave our office with a full set of teeth!
If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for multiple missing teeth, our periodontist may recommend implant-supported dentures. Implant-retained dentures are very similar in form to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by dental implants. Very often, denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and "float" around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can even retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. The dental implants, which are similar in appearance to screws, are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require four to six dental implants per denture. Once the implants have been placed and allowed sufficient healing time, your denture is attached on top. Implants provide your denture with exceptional stability. In fact, many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function like their natural teeth.
