Do you need to replace old dentures?
A dental implant-supported denture or bridge offers added stability and comfort for patients with multiple missing teeth. They look and function like natural teeth. Designed to be long lasting, they allow for more natural biting, chewing, and speaking. Implant-supported dentures are a permanent prosthesis compared to traditional dentures. Because they sit on dental implants and not your gums, they are much more comfortable. They don’t constantly rub your gums and jaw bone like traditional dentures.
Whether you already have a poorly fit denture or require a new dental restoration, Dr. Jospeh Cavallo can help you to improve your smile with dental implants.
Benefits: Implant-Supported Bridges & Dentures
Implant-secured dentures and bridges provide a wide range of improvements in comparison to removable restorations.

Implant-supported dentures & bridges improve your oral hygiene in many ways:
- No daily maintenance
- No acrylic rubbing the roof of your mouth
- Secure, stable fit with no worried about slippage
- Maintains the integrity of your jaw bone
- Support bone stability in your face and jaw for better overall health
- Custom color matched and fit to enhance your natural appearance
- Enjoy a diet without restrictions
- Maintains an even bite force across your mouth
- Improves self-confidence and smile aesthetics
- No denture adhesives needed to keep them in place!
The Implant-supported Denture Process
The process starts after an initial consultation. Dr. Cavallo will first determine if you are the right candidate for this prosthesis. If you are a good candidate, you will be notified and the process will begin. We will first clean-out your mouth and take digital impressions of you gum structure. With these impressions, we will create the final restoration. Next, Dr. Cavallo will surgically place four strategically placed implants into your jaw bone. We will give your mouth time to heal over the implants. They will need several months to heal and bond with the jaw bone. Temporary dentures will be worn during this time. After the implants and jaw have healed sufficiently, your new dentures will be attached to the implants.
