Dental Implants vs. Traditional Dentures

Full-mouth dental implants offer significantly improved fit, functionality, and comfort compared to dentures. Unlike dentures, full-mouth dental implants are permanently attached to the jaw, meaning they will never move or slip over time. Implant restorations also retain the strength and integrity of the jaw without affecting nearby soft tissue. This is in stark contrast to dentures, which commonly irritate the gums and can speed up bone loss.

Full-mouth dental implants provide a far more customized fit and offer greater durability compared to the antiquated technology of dentures. Full arch dental implants replicate the form and function of natural teeth and can provide decades of reliable day-to-use with routine brushing and flossing habits. As one of the most renowned implant dentists in Rapid City, SD, Dr. Carpenter doesn’t just pair a patient with an exam; he completely tailors each treatment and each oral arch to the unique needs of the patient for lasting durability and stunning aesthetics.

Step 2: Procedure Day

After your consultation, our team will schedule your procedure day. Dr. Carpenter, utilizing state-of-the-art technology, will skillfully and precisely place your dental implants into your jawbone at a carefully calculated 45-degree angle utilizing our all-on-four to six protocols, guaranteeing optimal and accurate positioning. To enhance your comfort and relaxation during the process, our office offers sedation dentistry that you get to choose from during your consultation.

Once your procedure is complete, we’ll place a temporary restoration on your dental implants so you can begin receiving the benefits of your brand-new smile immediately. This means that when you step out of our office, you’ll be leaving with a remarkable and stunning set of brand-new teeth! Over the next 3-6 months, your mouth will heal, and your implants will fuse to your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Once your mouth has healed, we’ll schedule you for placement of your final restoration.

After the final restoration is placed, patients will enjoy decades of gorgeous smiles and virtually maintenance-free functionality.
