How Long Is the Implant Denture Process?

Learn how we transform the denture experience with implant stability at our practice in this educational video by Dr. Amelia Aristodemo.

The process for securing dentures with implants can be relatively swift and straightforward, especially for those who already have an existing denture and are looking for enhanced stability. Here’s a breakdown of the steps involved in the process:

1. Consultation: The first step is a consultation visit, where your specific needs and goals are discussed, and a preliminary examination is conducted to determine your suitability for implanted dentures.

2. X-ray Examination: Next, an x-ray is taken to assess the quality and density of your jawbone. This step is crucial as it helps in planning the implant placement and ensuring the bone can support the implants effectively.

3. Impressions: If necessary, dental impressions are taken to create a precise model of your mouth. This ensures that the implants and the denture will fit perfectly and function as intended.

4. Implant Placement: On the day of the procedure, the implants are placed into the jawbone. This process is designed to be as minimally invasive as possible, with a focus on maximizing comfort and outcomes.

5. Immediate Stability: Once the implants are in place, your denture can be attached, providing immediate stability. This step transforms the experience of wearing dentures, offering a secure fit that feels more natural and comfortable.

Many patients report that the transformation feels like night and day, with significant improvements in comfort, function, and confidence. The exact timeline for the entire process can vary based on individual circumstances, including the need for any preparatory procedures and the healing time required for the implants to integrate with the jawbone fully.
