What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are dental restorations that combine the stability of dental implants with the convenience of dentures. By securely anchoring to two or more dental implants placed in the jawbone, implant-supported dentures offer a stable and fixed solution for individuals with multiple missing teeth.
What To Expect At Your Visit
The process of getting implant-supported dentures involves several key steps that ensure a successful and comfortable outcome.
The process begins with an initial consultation, where your oral health will be evaluated, and you will discuss your goals, concerns, and expectations for implant-supported dentures.
To determine the suitability of implant-supported dentures for your case, a comprehensive examination will be performed. This may include dental X-rays, 3D scans, and impressions of your teeth and jaw. This information will be used to create a detailed treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
The next step involves the surgical placement of dental implants into your jawbone. This is typically performed under local anaesthesia or with the option of sedation for your comfort. The number of implants placed will depend on the specific treatment plan and the condition of your jawbone. The implants serve as the foundation for supporting the denture prosthesis.
After the implant placement, a healing period is necessary to allow the implants to integrate with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This usually takes a few months and ensures a stable and secure foundation for your dentures. During this time, temporary dentures or a temporary bridge may be provided to maintain aesthetics and function.
Once the implants have successfully integrated, impressions and measurements will be taken to create your final custom-made denture prosthesis. This denture will be designed to fit your mouth precisely, ensuring optimal comfort, aesthetics, and functionality.
After the final denture is fabricated, it will be carefully placed and attached to the implants. Your dental professional will ensure proper fit, bite alignment, and aesthetics. Any necessary adjustments will be made to ensure optimal comfort and functionality.
Your dental professional will provide you with instructions on how to care for your implant-supported dentures and maintain good oral hygiene. Regular check-ups and professional cleanings will be scheduled to monitor the health of your implants, dentures, and overall oral well-being.

What our clients say
“Have been a client here for over 10 years and highly recommend this practice. Dr Lubinka has been my dentist for 12 years since I moved from the UK. Her professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and her communication is outstanding. The administrative, support and dental nurse staff here are equally exceptional. Customer focused, positive, flexible and polite. Have never ever considered going anywhere else. Highly recommended.”
“Thank you to all the staff for being so caring and accommodating for my husband's first visit. Dr Lubinka has set him on a path toward dental health recovery. This practice has even inspired me to visit for a checkup and that’s somewhat miraculous!”
“Excellent customer service, with friendly and experienced staff! This is so helpful when you have a child who has always been anxious going to the dentist. Dr Master is so professional and composed that I don't even need to go in with my child when she has an appointment. He makes sure that you are completely satisfied with the service you receive and that's at no additional cost to you!”
“What can you say? Who loves going to the dentist? My experience has been awesome. No pain, no fuss, friendly and professional. Do I want to go again? No. I want to take better care of my teeth. Yet, if I have to go, I definitely will be back here.”
“I cannot praise Mindarie Quinn’s dental staff highly enough. My son had an accident at school resulting in a chipped tooth, the desk staff were amazing, shifting around appointments to fit him in for emergency treatment. Dr Aron was brilliant. He was calm & gentle with a traumatised boy. Within the hour we were back home with a fixed up-front tooth. This is my usual dentist, and my experiences are always great, but the care we received today in an emergency was so professional and reassuring, I felt the need to leave a review of our experience. Thank you for the incredible treatment we received with you today.”
“Staff are always super friendly. Really helpful when it comes to dental emergencies. My teeth are forever grateful.”
“Myself and my children have been seeing Lubinka for years. She is kind, patient, friendly and explains everything very well. My daughter had to have 4 teeth extracted and the procedure went very well because of her trust in Lubinka. The other staff are also lovely. We highly recommend this practice.”
