Implant supported dentures in Cary, NC

Implant-supported dentures are a dental implant service that offers added support and stability for denture wearers in the Cary and Raleigh area. While regular dentures sit directly on the gums, implant-supported dentures are a type of overdenture that is supported and attached to dental implants. Because the implants are holding the denture securely in place, you won’t have to worry about your denture becoming loose or slipping as you talk and eat.

What are dental implants?

Before you can learn more about implant-supported dentures, you have to know what a dental implant is. Implants are strong, man-made substitutes for the roots of teeth. They allow patients to eat, talk, and behave as they normally would without having to worry about crowns, partials, or traditional dentures. Dental implants are made of three parts: the implant itself, the abutment, and the crown. The zirconia implant is placed in the jawbone, where it fuses with the bone, making for an exceptionally strong bond. The abutment goes on top of the implant to give a place for the crown (the fake tooth) to sit.

At Stanley Dentistry in Cary, NC, Dr. Robert Stanley uses specially made guides to make sure every dental implant is exactly where it should be. This ensures the longevity of the implants.

Dental implants are one of the most popular dental procedures offered at Stanley Dentistry in Cary, NC because they offer something very few dental procedures can offer: near permanence. The vast majority of the time, dental implants come with absolutely no stress.

What are implant-supported dentures?

Sometimes, one dental implant is all a patient needs. At other times, multiple implants are required to give a patient the smile of their dreams. For patients who have extensive tooth loss, implant-supported dentures may be the best option. Implant-supported dentures use multiple implants to keep a dental prosthetic firmly in place.

Implant-supported dentures are highly recommended for the lower jaw as regular dentures are not as stable in this area. Stanley Dentistry in Cary, NC will work with you to discover which denture option works best for you.

How long will implant-supported dentures take?

The implant procedure can be done is just one to two visits to our office. After this procedure, we will fit your dentures to your implants. If you already have an existing denture, we can place clips on the underside so you do not have to get an entirely new denture made! If you need a new custom denture made, the process typically takes about three to four weeks.

Am I a good fit for implant-supported dentures?

If you currently wear traditional dentures or are in need of dentures, implant-supported dentures could be the perfect fit for you! Come in for a consultation and we can assess if implant-supported dentures are the best solution for you!

Post-care instructions:

While implant-supported dentures are secure, dentures are not designed to be slept in and should be removed daily to clean the denture and gum area.

Implant-Supported Dentures


Is oral surgery painful?

At Stanley Dentistry, we pride ourselves on offering stress and pain-free oral surgery. For many of our surgeries, we use IV sedation so patients don’t feel or remember the procedure at all. When they wake up from surgery, we prescribe either prescription pain killers or over-the-counter drugs such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen to manage any discomfort.Compared to other parts of the body, the mouth heals incredibly quickly. Our patients usually only need a few days of recovery after oral surgery before they’re back in their normal routine.

What is oral, or restorative surgery?

Oral surgery includes procedures that go beyond the typical scope of family dentistry (fillings, crowns, etc.). These surgeries typically involve some sort of sedation.
