One of the best ways to replace a complete set of missing teeth is implant-supported dentures. They have many advantages and functions, just like your natural teeth. Implant dentures are much more convenient than conventional dentures as they function well and help in maintaining jawbone strength. We at Post House Dental provide Dental Implant solutions for all types of oral conditions.

This blog discusses every detail you need to know about dental implants and better than other tooth replacement options.

The Procedure for an Implant-supported denture

The complete Procedure to get an implant-supported denture might take six to eight months. 

A dental specialist will insert the small screws into the jawbone to secure it. Over the following six months, the bone heals and grows surrounding the implant. At this time, the patient can wear instant dentures for temporary use. 

The specialist will perform a second surgery following the bone growth, where a locator is fixed to the implant. These locators function as the bases for the dentures. After about two to three weeks of the healing period, the denture is fixed permanently onto the implants.
