What are Implant Retained Dentures?
At All About Smiles in St. Clair Shores, MI, we offer implant retained dentures to patients who are missing several teeth but prefer to have dentures that are implanted. People often worry about dentures slipping out of place while they eat or talk. As a solution, implant retained dentures can replace numerous teeth at once by permanently fixing the dentures in place, which means no sticky adhesives or powders need to be used.
How do Implant Retained Dentures Work?
Implant retained dentures improve eating ability, are secure and comfortable, and retain your natural facial structure. At All About Smiles in St. Clair Shores, MI, we do this procedure for those who don’t have enough teeth to stabilize normal dentures, but do have enough bone in the jaw to support implants. The implants are attached to the bone, and the dentures are then attached to the implants and can be removed. Implant retained dentures are more common for lower jaws as lower dentures tend to be less stable. Implant retained dentures should still be removed during sleep, though, and need to be cleaned regularly.
