What is it?
Implanted Supported Dentures are a type of denture in which involve the process of getting implants in the mouth to help fully support the denture. This type of denture is made mostly for individuals who don’t have any teeth in the jaw, but have enough bones in the jaw to support the implants.
The whole process takes about five months for the upper jaw and seven months for the lower jaw to complete. There are a series of steps in which an individual considering Implanted Supported Dentures must go through before they can begin this process.
There will be two surgeries that take place for the implants to be screwed in and fully healed before the dentures are actually fitted and placed in the mouth. Once the dentures are fitted for the mouth, you will be able to snap them in and take them out whenever you please. Due to the fact that they are screwed in, you will find it easier to keep the dentures in your mouth.
