Implant-Retained Dentures – Canton, MI
Rebuilding Your Smile, Starting With the Roots of Your Teeth
Having several gaps in your smile or missing all of your teeth is a heavy burden when you try to complete daily tasks like chewing and speaking. Tooth loss can cause social anxiety and decreased self-esteem, making it difficult to go through everyday life without being incredibly self-conscious about your appearance. While traditional restorative options like dentures are a fine solution, they aren’t the best choice for everybody. At Robison Dental Group, we use the most advanced technology, materials, and techniques to rebuild your missing teeth from the roots up for maximum support and stability. Implant-retained dentures in Canton can change your life, and we look forward to starting your journey!
How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?
Because traditional dentures only replace the visible portion of missing teeth, they rely on natural suction and denture adhesive to stay in place. Although they may look natural, they won’t necessarily feel that way. You’ll notice this mostly when you chew and bite, because they’re not as stable as your natural teeth were.
Implant-retained dentures in Canton are securely fastened to titanium posts that are fused with your jawbone. These implants replace the roots of your missing teeth and continue stimulating your bone to promote growth. They also ensure that your restorations will never slip or shift in your mouth.
Am I A Candidate for Implant-Retained Dentures?
If you’re searching for the best restorative solution for your lifestyle and aren’t convinced that traditional dentures are it, you may be a great candidate for dental implants in Canton if:
- You have good oral health.
- You aren’t satisfied with traditional dentures.
- Your jawbone is dense enough to support the titanium posts.
- You have good overall health and can heal from the surgery.
There are several preparatory procedures that can make you an ideal candidate for dental implants, for example, if you have gum disease or have suffered bone loss, you could get periodontal therapy or a bone graft before your implant placement. So, whether you meet all of these requirements right now, or you’d like to work on meeting them, don’t hold back from visiting your implant dentist in Canton, Dr. Robison.
The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure
After you’ve gotten any preparatory procedures taken care of to meet the requirements necessary for a successful implant placement, Dr. Robison will schedule your surgery. Our office partners with the best local oral surgeons that have placed thousands of implants throughout their careers, so you can trust that you’re in great care. They’ll strategically place the titanium implants throughout your jawbone to maximize the support and strength of your restoration.
After several months, once your gums have healed and your implants have naturally fused with your jawbone, we’ll take impressions for your customized implant-supported dentures and send them off to a laboratory to be made to our specifications. Once they’ve finished crafting them, you’ll come back to our office for one last time so we can attach them and make sure they’re a comfortable and natural-looking fit.

- Dentures made from high-quality materials that are custom-selected to resemble the appearance of your natural teeth.
