Also known as “implant supported dentures”, this innovative treatment allows Dr. Finkel, Dr. Jacobs, Dr. Porque, Dr. Katz, Dr. Moeller, Dr. Okamoto, Dr. Ross y Dr. Schwartz to combine implant technology with dentures to give our patients a new smile and a renewed outlook on life, all in one day!
Dentures and Implants: Working Together
Traditional dentures can be inconvenient, painful, e inestable. And while dental implants are an excellent choice for single tooth replacements, on the scale of a full arch, they can be expensive and complicated. sin embargo, putting these two treatments together yields a solution that works for nearly everyone: implant-supported overdentures. During this treatment, four dental implants are placed in the jaw and a full dental bridge attached to them, giving you a full row of teeth in just one appointment.
The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
- Cost: Because this treatment requires just four implants per arch, it is much more affordable than placing an entire row of implants.
- Comodidad: Replacement teeth can typically be placed during the same appointment as the implants.
- Bone Graft-Free: Two of the four implants are placed at special angles in the back of the jaw to make the best use of available jawbone. This often eliminates the need for bone grafting.
- Faster Healing: Less time in the chair and less time healing round out the benefits of full arch restorations.
Full Arch Replacement Procedure
As with other dental implant procedures, you will be anesthetized for comfort during the surgery and thus won’t feel a thing. Post-operation soreness is typically manageable with over-the-counter medications, and any necessary prescriptions will be discussed at your appointment.

Referred to above as “overdentures”, this process involves the placing of four to six implants in the lower jaw. A custom support bar connects the implants, and a denture with internal retention clips is attached to the support bar. This option is very popular as the denture is more stable than with ball attachments, yet it is still removable for cleaning.
Also known as a screw-retained denture, this option offers maximum stability. Placed on five or more implants and secured by screws or clasps, the denture is permanent, only removed by us at maintenance visits. The denture does not contact gum tissue, allowing you to clean under it without removal.
