Are you tired of the constant slipping, discomfort, and fuss that comes with traditional dentures? Meet the revolutionary solution for your dental woes: Implant Supported Dentures. Our service offers a myriad of benefits including a more natural fit, no more need for adhesives, and increased comfort. Here at The Houston Dentists Tanglewood, led by Dr. Tom Hedge, we provide this cutting-edge dental procedure that is quickly changing the lives of denture wearers in Houston and its surrounding locations such as Downtown Houston, Midtown, Montrose, Heights, Fourth Ward, and Third Ward.
Implant-supported dentures provide a superior alternative to traditional dentures. Unlike the latter, these involve a series of dental implants that securely hold the denture in your mouth. This not only eliminates the unnatural look but also the frequent slipping that troubles many denture wearers. The procedure offers a great way to rejuvenate your smile without the hassles of creams, gels, and adhesive strips.
A single tooth supported by an implant is often the best choice. Adjacent teeth are not affected and the area can be easily cleaned.
Conventional dentures can become problematic as you age, gain weight, or lose weight. If you find yourself in the loop of using multiple adhesive products to keep your dentures in place, it's time to consider implant-supported dentures. The implants are permanent fixtures, reducing the worry of replacements over time and offering a robust, long-lasting solution.
At our Houston location, our qualified team will evaluate your dental condition to determine your eligibility for implant-supported dentures. Factors like existing dentures and bone loss can impact the success of the dental implant procedure. In cases where bone grafting may be necessary, we discuss and provide suitable options to ensure a successful implantation.
Implant-supported dentures work by securely attaching to dental implants which are surgically placed into your jawbone. The procedure begins with sedation or anesthesia, based on your preference. Incisions are made in your gums, and the implants are positioned in the jawbone. The healing period ranges from three to six months, after which an overdenture is created using impressions. This overdenture snaps snugly onto the implants, providing a secure fit.
Implant-supported dentures are relatively easy to care for. Similar to natural teeth, regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups ensure their longevity and your oral health. Dr. Tom Hedge and our dedicated team will provide detailed care instructions during your visits.

These four specialists insure a great outcome. We also utilize three assistants to make sure everything runs smoothly. It usually takes most of a day to achieve this with all seven people just working on you.
The procedure involves sedation or anesthesia options, which will be discussed during your initial consultation. Incisions are carefully made, and the implants are placed into the jawbone. After a healing period that varies from patient to patient, we proceed to make your customized overdenture. The result is a set of dentures that not only looks natural but feels comfortable and secure.
