Implant Denture An Overview
One of the most exciting options for patients who are missing all or most of their teeth is implant secured dentures. Dr. Grapevine is pleased to be one of the few dentists in the Plano, TX area with the training and experience to provide patients with coordinated care for implant dentures.
If you have a poorly fit denture, or if you need your teeth removed, an implant secured denture can improve the aesthetics, function, and health of your smile. Dental implant secured dentures provide the added benefits of implants, helping to stabilize the function of the bite. Implant secured dentures promote healthy and confident smiles.

Implant Denture What to Expect
Your journey to a more secure, comfortable and beautiful smile begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Grapevine. Dr. Grapevine will evaluate your oral health and bone tissue to determine if you are a successful candidate for dental implant secured dentures. Patients will need a substantial amount of healthy bone tissue for successful results. For patients who do not have ample healthy bone, bone grafting or All-On-Four may be alternatives to implant secured dentures. Treatment will vary depending on the overall health of the patient and due to any additional needed treatments to fully restore oral health.
If it is determined that denture implants will work for you, the next step is to have the implant posts surgically placed in your jaw bone. Dr. Grapevine will coordinate this surgical phase with a local oral surgeon. He works closely with some of the most trusted local oral surgeons in the Plano, TX area to ensure the best results for his patients. The oral surgeon will surgically place the appropriate number of implants needed at precise angles and position to maximize the support. Depending on the number of implants you will need, plan on the surgery taking anywhere from one to three hours.
Once the dental implants have been placed, patients will receive a temporary denture while their implants heal. Once the implants are fully integrated with the jawbone, a final dental restoration will be designed and fit for a beautiful, stable smile. Your denture will be custom designed to look just like you natural teeth. Dr. Grapevine will consider multiple aesthetic aspects to help you create a denture that accentuates your best feature- your beautiful smile.
