Our implant-supported dentures provide outstanding stability while functioning just like natural teeth. Our patients appreciate being able to eat, talk, and smile with confidence.

What is an implant-supported denture?

Implant-supported dentures are a modern alternative to regular dentures. These types of dentures are connected to and supported by implants. It differs from a regular denture that rests on the gums and is not supported by implants.

How do implant-supported dentures differ from conventional dentures?

Conventional dentures are designed to mould to the shape of your mouth. Your gums and the underlying bone structure supports these dentures, making the denture rub against your gums.

An implant-supported denture, on the other hand, is both supported and retained by dental implants. This means that the denture does not rest on the gums. Instead, it is fixed on your dental implants, which are embedded in the bone.

The implant-supported denture process

If you don't already have implants, Dr JJ Serfontein will first need to place implants. Implants are permanent fixtures in the mouth, so a lot of consideration and planning needs to go into the process, which usually involves a team of dental professionals. Once your mouth has healed, your team will create and add the implant-supported denture.

Why should I get implant-supported dentures?

If you have lost teeth, and you're currently trying to decide between getting conventional dentures and implant-supported dentures, there are a few factors to consider.

  • Conventional dentures tend to rub against the gums causing sore spots. Implant-supported dentures are supported by implants, causing less discomfort.
  • Conventional dentures need to be removed to be cleaned. Implant-supported dentures are permanent fixtures that are cleaned in the same way as natural teeth.
  • Conventional dentures may cause bone loss in the jaw, causing poor fitment of the denture. With implant-supported bridges, dental implants fuse to the jawbone, providing a secure fit.
  • Many people that wear conventional dentures often avoid eating certain foods because their dentures slip or become loose when chewing. An implant-supported denture sits firmly in place, making it easier for you to enjoy your favourite foods.

If you're ready to smile with confidence, contact JJS Dentistry today. Dr JJ Serfontein will assess your candidacy for implant-supported dentures and tailor a treatment plan for your unique case.

This has got to be the BEST dental surgery I have ever visited. Dr JJ and his entire team offer excellent, professional service, and they take great pride in making patients feel comfortable, informed and safe under their care. Being a patient with many past awful experiences with other dentists, I developed a major phobia and hate for dental visits. When I started visiting Dr JJ’s practice, however, I was blown away by the high quality of their service, as well as their compassion, empathy and emphasis on making the patient feel they were in good, capable, trustworthy hands.
