Why Should I Opt for Denture Implants?

Denture implants offer a natural looking and successful alternative for traditional denture wearers. They are a long-lasting tooth loss solution for patients who have missing teeth due to age, injury or gum disease and can support fixed replacement of several teeth or an entire denture set.

At Future Smiles, we want you to be comfortable and happy with your smile and offer high-quality, competitively priced denture implant solutions and accessible financing options to all our Calgary patients.


What is a denture implant?

Unlike a regular denture, which rests on the gums, an implant-supported denture is supported by and attached to implants, artificial roots made of titanium steel.

Typically a denture implant is constructed for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to feel less unstable there.

However, implants can provide exceptional support for full and partial dentures since they integrate with the bone to act as a firm anchor for the replacement teeth

How does a denture implant work?

There are three components to an implant-supported denture:

  1. Implant (Fixture): This is the tooth root replacement that is inserted into the jaw and fuses together with the bone tissue.
  2. Abutment: Used to attach the removable denture to the implant fixture
  3. Denture: Your old denture can be modified or a new one created to snap onto the implant abutment. It can then be removed daily for cleaning.


What are the benefits of an implant-supported denture?

While traditional dentures may be a better option for some patients, there is no denying the numerous and unique benefits of implant-supported dentures.

  • Natural look & feel

    Dentures placed over implants look, feel and function almost exactly like natural teeth. Because the denture implant is fused into the jawbone, there is no movement or slippage and no more need for messy adhesives.

  • No more sore spots

    One of the most problematic denture issues are sore spots. This is not the case with implant-supported dentures because the denture rests on the implant and not on gum tissue.

  • Improved oral health

    Traditional dentures are supported by the gums and over time, these prosthetic teeth will wear down the soft tissues of the mouth. With implant-supported dentures, the structure is supported by the implants which don’t apply any added pressure to the gums. Additionally, denture implants provide constant stimulation to the jawbone, protecting against any future bone loss.

  • Improved chewing ability

    Because of the stability and biting force implant-supported dentures provide, you will have fewer diet restrictions and won’t have to avoid your favorite crunchy, tough or chewy foods.
