Implant Dentures in Edmonton
When considering dental restorations, there are several options to choose from. Traditional dentures sit on the gums and are removable. But over time, these prosthetics can become ill-fitting. Implant-supported dentures provide a permanent solution to missing teeth. At Grandview Denture Clinic in Edmonton, we provide implant denture services for patients interested in reliable solutions to missing teeth.
The restoration you choose depends on your budget, candidacy, treatment goals, and timeline. Our denturist and the oral surgeon can help you determine the right procedure for you. Contact us today for a consultation!

Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants have revolutionized the field of dentistry as a way to replace missing teeth. Instead of removable dentures that slide around your mouth or a traditional dental bridge that alters healthy teeth, dental implants are permanently affixed to the bone to support a prosthetic. These restorations do not negatively affect healthy dental structures.
Many patients choose dental implants because of convenience and improved dental function. Once implants heal, you can care for them as you would your natural teeth and eat the foods you’d like. Implants do not slip or fall out of place but function just like your natural teeth, helping you regain confidence in your smile.
How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?
Patients who choose implant-supported dentures are missing an entire dental arch, whether on the top or bottom jaw. A denture replaces all of the missing teeth to recreate a full smile.
To begin your treatment, you will consult with a recommended oral surgeon, who assess your medical history and makes sure you are healthy enough to receive implants. A surgeon also determines whether you need two, four, or six implants to properly retain your denture.
As an implant-supported denture patient, you will never be without teeth. Once your oral surgeon places your implants, Dr. Ward provides your dentures so that you can chew and speak comfortably during the two-to-three-month healing process. Our Edmonton denturists will fabricate your final denture that is then placed once your implants have integrated with the jawbone.
To completely understand your fixed denture options, ask our team about All-on-4 full arch bridges or an overdentures. All-on-4 is permanently anchored in place, while overdentures snap in and out with ease. The type of denture recommended depends on the size and density of your jaw. Your oral surgeon helps you choose the right restoration, as well.
