What Is an Implant Denture?

Implant dentures are the gold standard in dental prosthetics, designed for patients with extensive or complete tooth loss. Unlike traditional dentures that rest on top of the gumline, implant dentures are permanently anchored to the jaw through small posts known as dental implants. 

Removable and fixed implant dentures
Titanium implants are surgically placed directly into the jaw. Your dentures are then secured to the implants for optimal stability.

Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work Better?

Yes. There are reasons why dental implants are considered to be the best solution in dentistry for tooth replacement. Here are a few reasons why this solution is better than the traditional alternative:

Increased Stability

Because your dentures will be firmly attached to your jaw, the possibility of them moving or becoming loose over time is virtually eliminated.

Full Chewing Strength

Dentures secured to implants restore your ability to bite and chew normally, allowing you to eat foods that would cause traditional dentures to shift out of place. 

Retain Jawbone Tissue

When the titanium implants are surgically anchored into your jawbone, they provide stimulation to the surrounding tissue. This actually stops and reverses the bone atrophy that follows tooth loss. 

You're Not Alone Missing Teeth Are a Common Problem


According to the American College of Prosthodontists, approximately 40 million adults in the United States are missing all of their teeth. Thirty percent of adults between 65 and 74 have no natural teeth. You don't have to live with missing teeth — let our team provide you with dental implants and a denture.

I was there for an evaluation for implants, removing an old crown and bridge. The information provided was well detailed and with different options to consider in this process. Mia and Dr. Edwards were both very thorough and friendly. The facility was first rate and the equipment they use could not have been more up-to-date.

The All-on-4 Technique

In the past, implant-supported dentures required 6-8 dental implants to secure in place. Now, Advanced Oral Surgery of Tampa can provide patients with the innovative All-on-4® technique. This method allows our team to secure a complete denture on just four implants. These implants are placed at strategic angles and in areas of your jawbone with the highest density.
The All-on-4 method allows patients who wouldn't otherwise be a candidate for implant-supported dentures qualify for treatment. In some cases, patients can also skip preparatory procedures like bone grafting and receive a solution for their tooth loss faster.

Already Have a Denture? We Perform Denture Conversions

Do you like the look of your traditional denture, but wish you had an implant-supported denture instead? Our team can convert your complete denture into an implant-supported prosthetic so you can preserve the appearance of your smile, save some money, and reap the benefits of dental implants.

Denture Timeline

All our impressions are taken using digital technology – no messy goop needed! 
All our impressions are taken using digital technology – no messy goop needed! 


During your initial consultation at our Tampa Bay–area dental practice, your oral surgeon will perform an exam, discuss your dental history and goals, and determine if implants and dentures are right for you.

Preparatory Treatment

If you need preparatory treatment such as bone grafting or tooth extraction, this will need to be done first. You will be given time to heal before your implant placement. 


Before implant placement, your mouth will be numbed using a local anesthetic. Sedation options are also available to help you remain comfortable during your treatment. 

Implant Placement

Once you are properly numbed, a small incision is made in the gums before the implants are placed into the jaw. The number of implants depends on your needs. A complete denture requires four to eight implants. 


Impressions are taken of your mouth using digital scanning technology. This eliminates the need for messy and uncomfortable putty impressions.

Using your impressions we create our high-quality tooth restorations at our in-house NDX nSequence dental lab to ensure the absolute best results. If you are undergoing a denture conversion, your set will be converted to attach to the dental implants. 

Dentures Placed

In some cases, a healing period is required to allow the implants to fuse to the jawbone. In other cases, your dentures can be placed immediately.

Maintaining Your Dentures

Caring for your implants and dentures is easy. Because your denture is secured to the implants, you treat them as you would your natural teeth. Here are a few tips to keep your new smile healthy and beautiful for years to come.

Maintain Oral Hygiene

Brush twice a day with a soft bristle toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste. Floss daily; a floss threader or water pick can help clean around your implants and underneath your restoration.

Don't Misuse Your Teeth

Do not use your teeth to open packages or bite your nails. This can damage your dentures. It is also best to minimize or avoid sticky or hard foods, like ice or caramel, to protect your new smile. 

Visit Your Dentist

Don't forget your regular dental checkups and cleanings. This will allow your dentist to catch any problems before they become worse and help you maintain your new dentures for years to come.

What's Wrong With Traditional Dentures?

While many general dentists recommend traditional dentures as a good, simple choice to replace natural teeth, they do have some drawbacks when compared to implant-supported dentures created and placed at Advanced Oral Surgery, serving Greater Tampa, Florida:

Lack of Stability

Traditional complete and partial dentures are removable, meaning they are not permanently secured in your mouth. Full dentures, used when every tooth is missing, are designed to fit tightly against your gums while partial dentures, which replace a few consecutive missing teeth, use wire frameworks and metal clasps that attach to nearby teeth. Dental adhesive is sometimes needed to keep your full or partial dentures in place, but they remain prone to slipping out of place when you chew or speak.

Weak Chewing Strength

Traditional dentures are not permanently secured to your jawbone, so they only give you a fraction of the chewing function you actually need to eat healthy foods. In other words, biting into hard foods can dislodge your dentures or literally pull them out. 

Jawbone Atrophy

When you lose a tooth, the bone tissue that held it in place will shrink. Dentures cannot stop this dental issue from getting worse. Bone shrinkage associated with several missing teeth can eventually cause your face to look sunken and aged. 

If you have a traditional denture and you aren't satisfied with its functionality, let our team at Advanced Oral Surgery of Tampa convert it into an implant-supported denture.
