What Are Implant-Retained Dentures?

Before implant dentures, traditional dentures were the only way for patients to get a full smile replacement. However, thanks to modern dentistry and Dr. Moulton’s expertise, patients can now receive the strongest, most beautiful and sturdy complete smile replacement available. Using an average of 4 implant posts, we can permanently fix your denture to your jawbone.

Dental implants in Hoover are small titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw to act as artificial tooth roots. These posts are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material that allows the implants to fuse to the bone. The result is a fortified support for your denture.

The Implant-Retained Dentures Process

We will refer you to a local oral surgeon for the placement of your dental implants. Once an average of 4 dental implants get surgically placed in your jaw, you will undergo a 3 to 4-month recovery period. During this time, your implants will fuse to your jaw to create firm supports—a process called osseointegration. After, you’ll come back into our office, where Dr. Moulton will take images and impressions of your smile. These impressions are used for the customization of your personalized denture. Once your denture has been created, Dr. Moulton will attach it to your implants for a seamless and strong smile replacement.
