If you are missing most or all of your natural teeth, dentures are a great option to restore oral function and appearance.
Dentures paired with dental implants can provide even more benefits, such as stability and jawbone stimulation that prevents deterioration.
Dr. Art Carpenter in Kenilworth, IL, can help you replace your missing teeth and restore oral function with dentures supported by implants.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jaw. Implants provide unparalleled support for dental restorations. Dentures and other restorations are secured directly to the implants, replacing your missing teeth with maximum stability.
Additionally, dental implants act as prosthodontic tooth roots. Bone atrophy can occur after tooth loss, but implants provide the jawbone with much-needed stimulation that helps prevent this bone deterioration.

Does Implant Placement Hurt?
Your mouth will be numbed prior to dental implant surgery, meaning you will not feel pain while your implants are placed. However, minor discomfort following surgery is to be expected and is typically easily managed using comfort measures such as:
- Over-the-counter pain meds
- Prescription pain meds
- Eating soft foods for a few days
If you experience pain that cannot be managed, please contact our Kenilworth, IL, practice immediately so your dentist can address your issues promptly.
If you suffer from dental anxiety or simply want extra comfort care, our Kenilworth dental practice offers oral conscious sedation. You will be given medication prior to your procedure, which will produce a sedative effect. You will remain awake, but you will feel relaxed and calm. It is important to remember that you will need a responsible adult to drive you to and from your appointment, as you cannot drive until the sedation wears off several hours later.
No Need to Remove
Unlike traditional dentures, your implant-supported dentures do not need to be removed. There is no need to detach or soak your new restoration. Treat them just as you would normal teeth, and brush and floss as you normally would. Dr. Carpenter will provide you with the education you need to maintain your smile for years to come.
While we accept many insurance plans at our Kenilworth, IL, dental practice, insurance does not typically cover the cost of dental implants. However, many insurances will cover the restoration, such as your dentures. We do not want financial barriers to prevent patients from enjoying the multitude of benefits dental implants provide, so we proudly accept CareCredit® financing to help patients cover their out-of-pocket costs.
