Raleigh Implant-Supported Dentures

Contact Spectrum Family Dentistry today to learn more about our dental services.

Do you have gaps in your smile and want to restore its beauty? If you’re interested in a procedure that implants dentures directly into your gums, Spectrum Family Dentistry can advise the best course of action and give you real-looking teeth. We’re the best dentists in Raleigh, NC, and want to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Dental implants screw into the jawbone and use a crown to appear real. They’re significantly more expensive than dentures, and the process takes several months. They require the same maintenance as a natural tooth.

Dentures rest on your gums and only require a non-invasive fitting for the initial procedure. They’re significantly more affordable but don’t look as real and can slip out of your mouth. Partial dentures are an option for those who have some healthy teeth remaining.

Implant-supported dentures combine the benefits of both procedures by allowing your dentures to snap directly into your mouth. They come in both fixed and removable varieties. If you don’t have enough bone in your jaw for implants, you’ll need traditional dentures instead.

The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures

What are the benefits of implanting dentures directly into your gums?


Because they’re situated on sturdy screws, implant-supported dentures are more stable than traditional dentures. There’s no slipping, and they don’t require adhesive.

The increased stability allows better functionality. You’re not restricted to the type of foods you can eat, and they’re more comfortable than removable dentures.


Implant-supported dentures look like natural teeth and give you a confident smile. No one can tell the difference because we use naturally-looking materials and fit them perfectly.


Because the dentures are permanent, they require less maintenance. You won’t need to take them out every night or worry about special cleaning. Just brush them like normal teeth!

The Impact-Supported Denture Procedure

How does Spectrum Family Dentistry implant your dentures? The doctor follows this procedure:

1. Sedation

We provide several options for sedation depending on your needs, comfort, and level of anxiety. While some patients prefer local anesthesia mixed with oral conscious sedation, others require nitrous oxide, IV sedation, or general anesthesia.

2. Placing the Implants

The dentists place between four to six implants for each arch. If you need both top and bottom dentures, you could receive up to 12 screws. The dentists place screws in the holes of your gum created by making small incisions.

3. Interim Recovery

You’ll need four to six months to heal and adjust to the implants after the initial procedure. During this time, you might require temporary traditional dentures.

4. Final Fitting

Once you fully heal, the dentist can clean out the rest of your gums, fit you for dentures, and snap them in place. Most patients only require two appointments.
