Implant-Supported Dentures in Bridgeville, PA

The Solution to Loose, Uncomfortable Dentures

What if you could combine the efficiency and affordability of conventional dentures with the added security of dental implants? That’s precisely what implant-supported dentures do for our Bridgeville, PA patients. At DiBartola Dental, our Bridgeville, PA implant dentists Dr. Wayne “The Train” DiBartola, and Dr. Capp can give you a new smile that’s healthy and beautiful, as well as affordable. 

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are full arches of teeth secured in place by dental implants. Also called “overdentures,” implant-supported dentures can restore an entire arch of teeth with as little as two to four implants per arch. DiBartola Dental offers snap-in implant-supported dentures, which can be easily taken off and on without professional help.

Snap-In Dentures

Snap-in dentures are implant-supported restorations that snap onto ball (O-ring) attachments secured to dental implants. The design of snap-in implant dentures means your new smile can be securely but easily placed and removed as needed. The ball attachments that allow your dentures to snap in will need to be replaced as they wear down over time, but they’ll help ensure your new smile stays put as you eat, speak, and smile.  

Benefits Of Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are easy to maintain and care for. Simply clean them as directed and see your implant dentist regularly.

Implant-supported dentures are often much more affordable than singular dental implants. That’s because a minimal number of implants are used to secure the denture. Your local Bridgeville implant dentist can also secure your old dentures with dental implants, saving you money on your restorations

The placement of the implants utilizes your existing jawbone structure. That way, even patients with advanced loss of jawbone density (resorption) may qualify without having to undergo bone grafting.

Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, helping to prevent bone loss, regenerate bone density, and maintain the face’s natural shape.

Thanks to the surgically inserted implants, your denture stays firmly in your mouth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

Implant-supported dentures are custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth, providing a comfortable and natural-feeling solution.

While the restoration and the O-ring snaps will need to be replaced over time, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. This makes implant-supported dentures a durable solution for missing teeth.

Digitally mapped placement allows for more efficient surgery and even faster recovery with increased implant stability. This reduces pressure on your gums for a comfortable fit that won’t irritate your mouth.

Who Qualifies For Implant-Supported Dentures?

  • You’ve lost most or all of the teeth in an arch or both arches
  • You have enough jawbone density to hold two to four implants
  • Besides tooth loss, you have good oral health
  • You’ll attend follow-up dental exams as directed
  • You want a stable solution to tooth loss
  • You want to improve and maintain your oral health
  • Most of your teeth are too damaged to save

Your Bridgeville implant dentist will tell you about all of your options for smile restoration during your initial consultation so you can make an informed decision.

The Implant-Supported Dentures Process

Initial Consultation

Before your implant placement procedure, your Bridgeville implant dentist will have you visit our Bridgeville dental office for an initial consultation. During your initial consultation, your dentist will provide a thorough exam. The exam will include taking X-rays, so we can fully understand what’s going on with your smile. Besides the exam, your Bridgeville implant dentist will review your medical history, ask questions about your smile goals, and tell you about other options.

Your consultation is a great time to ask your Bridgeville implant dentist any questions you may have. If you’re feeling nervous, we can offer sedation dentistry to help you feel relaxed during the procedure.

Designing Your Snap-In Implant-Supported Dentures

If you and your Bridgeville dentist agree that implant-supported dentures are right for you, we’ll then take images and impressions of your smile. These will serve as the blueprints for your snap-in implant-supported dentures.


To prepare your mouth for your implants, your dentist will perform any necessary tooth extractions to make sure your arch replacement will fit. We’ll apply a local anesthetic to the soft tissues around the affected teeth so you don’t feel any pain or discomfort. We can also apply your sedative at this time.

Placing Your Snap-In Implant-Supported Dentures

Once your gums have healed, your implant dentist will show you your new restoration to make sure it’s to your liking. If you approve, they’ll remove the temporary restoration and secure your snap-in denture. They’ll also show you how to insert and remove your restoration and how to care for it. Once you have your new snap-in implant dentures and understand how they work, you’ll leave our Bridgeville dental office with your brand-new, functional smile. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Implant-supported dentures are often more expensive than traditional dentures due to the cost of dental implants and the surgical placement process. However, many patients find that the long-term benefits of implant-supported dentures, including greater stability and the preservation of jawbone density, make them a worthwhile investment.

While your denture restoration and the o-rings that secure them will need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear, implant-supported dentures can potentially last for a lifetime.


It’s important to clean your denture restoration regularly and follow the instructions for its care. You’ll also need to continue to see your dentist for regular checkups and maintenance. Taking these steps is vital for extending the lifespan of your restoration and dental implants.

Placing your implants will be painless, as your dentist will use anesthetic as needed to numb you beforehand. Many dentists can also offer sedation dentistry options to make you more comfortable and even more resistant to pain during your denture stabilization process. 

Some minor discomfort is normal for about ten days after implant placement. Your implant dentist can give you medication and care instructions to control any lingering discomfort. 

The exact cost of your implant-supported dentures will depend on numerous factors, including how many implants you need to secure your denture restoration and your insurance. We encourage you to talk to your implant dentist about costs and confirm your insurance coverage beforehand.
