Implant Retained Dentures

Currently, the best possible denture solution for replacing multiple teeth is achieved when dental implants are used in retaining or supporting dentures or bridges.

Dental implants offer stability and retention for anchoring a denture, helping it to stay firmly in place while eating and talking, as well as stimulating the jawbone, helping to preserve it.

  • Implant retained dentures are an excellent way to replace missing teeth or conventional dentures with a prosthesis that is retained by as little as two implants for the lower jaw, and four implants for the top jaw. This technique is much more successful in retaining a denture than conventional full top and bottom dentures. Implant retained dentures still sit on your gums for maximum support, but the retention of the denture comes from the dental implants. Some of the benefits of implant retained dentures include:
  • Eliminating ulcers, blisters or sore gums caused by excessive movement as the dentures do not move.
  • Added benefit of being able to remove the denture to assist with cleaning the denture and abutments, keeping them clean and in good working order.
  • The ability to eat a wider variety of food compared to a conventional full denture, as the retention and stability is greater, especially in a full lower denture.
  • Repairing a broken tooth is much cheaper and easier compared to an implant supported denture.
  • Partial removal of the top allows you to not only better enjoy food but also removes the gagging feeling some may experience with a conventional full top denture.
  • Aesthetics can be adjusted to compensate for previous loss of bone. Adding a thicker flange at the front and side can potentially restore lost facial contours.
