A Permanent, Full-Arch Denture Solution to Missing Teeth


The Beauty of Dentures, The Stability from Implants

Removable dentures have been helping patients for decades, but over time, certain drawbacks leave patients searching for an alternative solution for their missing teeth. The answer for many patients is implant supported dentures, a permanent full-arch solution that combines the aesthetic benefits of dentures with the health and function provided by dental implants. Implant supported dentures significantly improve our patients’ ability to eat comfortably, speak and laugh confidently, and feel happy and satisfied in their smiles. Dr. Carl Medgaus has extensive training in full arch dental implants, having placed over 600 full arch cases. Over the course of his nearly four-decade career, he has attended many advanced courses and training in dental surgical procedures and soft tissue treatment from prestigious organizations and leaders in dentistry, including the Misch Implant Institute, Pikos Institute, and Dr. Pat Allen. With this exceptional background of education and hands-on experience, Dr. Medgaus is highly qualified to provide implant supported dentures—from first consultation to final restoration—all in the comfort of his office.

Implant Supported Dentures Process

Our implant supported dentures process is designed to meet your smile goals, while improving the functional and health concerns that accompany missing teeth or denture wear. Our areas of specialty lie both with providing technology-guided implant placement and crafting a custom and aesthetic restorations. After a comprehensive examination and x-rays, we begin your implant supported dentures process by completing any preliminary procedures, including tooth extractions or bone grafting. When a strong, stable foundation is able to support dental implants, we place two or more in your jaw using advanced surgical guides to ensure the highest level of precision. Next we meticulously design your new denture or prosthesis, and once you are satisfied with the restoration, our accredited partner dental lab will create your new denture. When ready, we will attach your new set of teeth to your dental implants and you will walk out of our office with a beautiful, functional new smile!

Why Do Patients Choose Implant Supported Dentures?

Implant supported dentures significantly improve the stability of dentures, especially on the lower arch, solving many problems associated with removable dentures, including slipping, clicking, loosening, or falling out. Aesthetically, our custom restorations or dentures look and feel like natural teeth secured in lifelike artificial gum tissue. Functionally, dental implants provide stimulation to the jaw bone and give dentures the strength and stability to withstand normal biting and chewing pressure without shifting around. Overall, implant supported dentures provide you with an enhanced quality of life from a secure, aesthetic smile that is uniquely yours!

Dentures aren’t your only option for missing teeth!
