Also known as Implant-Supported Dentures, Implant-Retained Dentures or Implant Dentures
Denture wearers are familiar with the problems traditional dentures pose regarding fit, speech, and awkwardness when they slip. They also allow the jaw bone to recede and cause that “denture-wearer” appearance where the face appears shrunk or sunken and the nose and chin become closer together.
Traditional dentures simply rest on your gums, but dental implant-supported or implant-retained dentures are secured by dental implants and offer a more firm, snug fit. Dental implant supported dentures help to stimulate bone and gum tissue, ensuring an attractive, esthetic result while helping to maintain natural facial structure and proper muscle support. This life-changing treatment allows denture wearers to relax and live life. Implant denture wearers have confidence they can eat the foods they love and can smile, laugh and talk with comfort and without concern of embarrassing slippage.
What Are Implant-Supported and Implant-Retained Dentures?
An implant-supported denture is a denture that is secured to dental implants and restores your ability to eat, speak and chew normally once again. Similar to traditional dentures, implant dentures can be removed, but offer much more support when in the mouth. Implant dentures generally eliminate the need for adhesive.
Implant-retained dentures are the most natural substitute for your original teeth. Implant-retained dentures are NOT removable (except by your dentist) and remain secured in your mouth all day, every day - just like your natural teeth. They look, chew and feel like real teeth. You can eat foods you love and feel free to enjoy life again!
