Implant Retained Dentures are dentures that are held in the mouth by dental implants. These dentures are more secure than regular dentures, last longer, require less work and look just like the real teeth. Implant Retained Dentures are perfect if you have multiple missing teeth, or no teeth at all. Since the denture is fixed in the mouth there is no need to mess with gels and adhesives like you have to do with removable dentures. They can also be brushed just like regular teeth and don’t have to be constantly taken out.
The denture appliance is held into the mouth with multiple implants into the patient’s jaw. This keeps the denture snug and secure, no need to worry about it falling out. Implant Retained Dentures can restore your ability to talk properly, chew properly, can reduce jaw and muscle pain in the mouth, and will hopefully get you smiling again. These dentures can improve confidence, stability when eating, dental hygiene, and preserve the gum and bone. The denture also feels natural in the mouth, so hopefully you won’t even notice it’s there.
