Dental Implant Dentures Provide Full Smiles

When you lose most of your teeth, or potentially all of them, then you could benefit from a set of dentures. Instead of removable ones, we can offer fixed options that function like natural teeth. In today’s blog, your Livonia, MI, dentist talks about how we support a full set of dentures with multiple dental implants.

The Importance of Implant Prosthetics

When you have lost the vast majority of your teeth, this could severely limit your meal options and leave you deprived of essential nutrients in the process. You could also have trouble speaking clearly, and may feel embarrassed in social situations, which harms your quality of life. But your body also responds to the missing roots by suspending the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone around the missing teeth. Without these nutrients, the bone tissue will gradually break down and lead to an older appearance. To preserve your facial structure and restore function and beauty to your smile, we can help with dental implant dentures.

Preparing Your Smile

We begin by examining your smile. We may need to gently extract the last few teeth, which we can do comfortably using dental sedation. Our team will also gather detailed digital images from multiple angles of your smile, which we use to plan the placement of the dental implants, ensuring we can place them at the right position, angle, and depth to support a full set of new teeth.


Traditional dental implant dentures usually require between six and eight posts per arch. If the jawbone has lost too much mass and density due to tooth loss, we may need to first provide grafting or a sinus lift to ensure there is enough structure to support your new teeth, which are biocompatible posts that act as new roots. But with All-On-Four, we only need four posts per arch, and these are designed to require less structure to support them, so you often don’t need grafting or sinus lifts. The placement process and the attachment of the denture all takes place in one visit, so you leave our office with a full and beautiful smile!

Mini Implants

Our team can also offer Mini Implants to address severe tooth loss, as these require less structure to support and can help you enjoy a full smile with posts that are much smaller and more economical. If you have any questions about how we treat tooth loss with our custom dental implant dentures, then contact our team today to learn more.
