Implant Supported Overdenture
Full Arch Replacements
Dental implants are a great solution for replacing missing teeth, but what about the patient who is missing nearly all of his or her teeth? A single implant for each missing tooth is not practical for the majority of patients, and traditional dentures restrict a person’s lifestyle and negatively affect self-esteem. That’s why we are seeing more and more patients each year at Advanced Dental Center for implant-supported dentures, a life-changing treatment that gives patients back the quality of life we believe they deserve.
Overdentures: Combining Dentures and Dental Implants
As the name would suggest, the implant supported dentures procedure (often referred to by patients as “implant dentures”) combines two powerful and popular treatments in dentistry: dental implants and dentures. The concept is simple: a set of dentures is attached to four (or more) dental implants, instantly replacing an entire row of teeth.
The Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
- Same-Day: In many cases, we can send you home the same day of surgery with a fully functional set of teeth.
- No Grafting Required: We are often able to forgo bone grafting.
- Heal Quicker: Less implants means less time in the chair and quicker, more comfortable healing.
- Cost: For patients considering a full arch of implants, this procedure is much more affordable.
Are you ready to replace your missing teeth and smile with confidence again?

Implant Supported Overdentures: The Procedure
For this procedure, you will be kept comfortable the entire time while we place four to six dental implants in your jawbone. We offer several sedation and anesthesia options, including IV sedation. Once the implants are installed, we are able to place a temporary set of teeth for you to use immediately, while your final overdenture is fabricated. Most people are ready to return to work and normal activities a day or two following surgery, and any post-op discomfort is usually adequately controlled by over-the-counter pain medications.
Implant Overdenture Cost
We offer competitive pricing on full arch restorations, using a variety of brands and types of systems.
