If you have dentures and are considering a more stable replacement for your missing teeth, we invite you to contact JP Dental and Implant Center to learn about converting your current dentures to implant-supported dentures. Our talented dentists provide this service as a cost-effective and stable alternative to traditional dentures and implants. We offer All-On-Four and All-On-Six implants at our office. Please call us at 970-243-2025 to learn more about implant-supported dentures in Grand Junction, Colorado, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Poovey and Dr. Gorman.
Converting your dentures to an implant-supported prosthesis can improve the comfort, function, and appearance of your smile, as well as maintain a healthy bite. Our dentists begin by providing dental implants. This portion of your denture conversion may take time, as your implants can take several months to heal and bond to your bone structure.
Once your dental implants are integrated, our dentists carefully evaluate your mouth to ensure that there is space for your dentures. We then begin converting your dentures into a fixed (non-removable) prosthesis. The refurbished denture is then attached to the four or six posterior abutments. Your denture is then adjusted to ensure a good fit, first by trimming it to allow the metal abutments to pass through the denture, and then by making any adjustments to the height of your denture to ensure a good bite. The denture is then set in place. After a few weeks, our dentists will perform another evaluation to ensure a good fit, and make any necessary adjustments.
