Partial or complete removable dentures need pastes and adhesives to stay put in your mouth, but implanted dentures are connected to metal posts in your jawbone so they are stable and secure. This means that the dentures won't slip, even when you are speaking or eating. With more support and security, patients with implanted dentures can rest assured that their teeth will stay in their mouth. Implant dentures look beautiful and can be cleaned just like your natural teeth. At Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry, New York patients can have implant-supported dentures that feel comfortable and look natural.

You may want implant dentures if you're currently using removable dentures or if you need dentures to replace most of your teeth. A big advantage over removable dentures, implanted dentures don't require soaking and adhesives. Implant-supported dentures have fewer restrictions on want you can eat and drink compared to removable dentures, and implant dentures can be brushed just like your natural teeth. The dental implant simulates the natural roots of your teeth, so your jawbone and gums are unlikely to become weak. At your appointment, Dr. Farber will examine the health of your mouth to decide if your jawbone and gums are able to bond with the dental implants. If needed, bone and/or gum grafts may be performed to strengthen specific areas before implant surgery. Prior to placement, your dental restoration will be created in the dental lab.
What to Expect
Before treatment, Dr. Farber will complete a dental exam with digital imaging to better understand the strength of your jawbone and gums. If your gums or jawbone are not strong enough to securely hold the dental implants, a gum and/or bone graft surgery may be needed. As soon as the grafted area is fully healed, your implant surgery can be scheduled. Dr. Farber will also take a mold of your mouth to help create a customized prosthesis for you. She works with a renowned dental lab, Jason J. Kim Dental Aesthetics, which is affiliated with the Oral Design International group. This lab is well-known for its quality work, and it was carefully selected by Dr. Farber as a way to make sure her patients receive exceptional, natural results.
Your mouth will be numbed with local anesthesia before the procedure. Sedation options can be discussed if the process will be lengthy or if you need it to feel comfortable. Surgical incisions will be made in your gums and posts will be inserted in the holes of the jawbone. For dentures, at least four implants are needed for each arch. The incisions in the gums will be sutured with some of the implant visible above the gums. The posts will be covered with a temporary denture as your mouth heals in 4 – 6 months . The implants will integrate with your gums and jaw. As soon as Dr. Farber feels the posts are secure, your custom-made dentures can be connected to the implants and fitted.
Implanted dentures should be cleaned with daily brushing and flossing. You should also schedule yearly exams and cleanings at Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry to have the wear and fit of your dentures and implants evaluated. If you properly care for them, implanted dentures can last several years. Dr. Farber can help you decide when your implant dentures should be replaced or repaired.
Based on your dental insurance policy, the expense of implant-supported dentures will usually be partially covered. Before your surgery, a member of our team will talk to your insurance provider to determine your coverage and personal cost. Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry takes several methods of payment, and we can provide you information on low-interest medical financing so your procedure is easier to afford.
Implant dentures give you back your smile and allow you to talk and eat without trouble. To enjoy confidence in the strength of your dentures, contact Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry to make your appointment. Dr. Farber will help you get an attractive smile that is strong and natural.
