Implant Supported Dentures
Also known as implant-supported dentures, these are dentures that are attached to implants in the jaw.
For patients missing all of their teeth in their upper and/or lower jaws, implant-supported dentures are an ideal solution. Implant-supported dentures are dentures that are secured in place using implants in the jaw.
They are often used when a patient no longer has teeth remaining in their mouth but enough bone in their jaw to support implants. Implant-supported dentures either snap into place on top of implants to be removed nightly, or are screw retained and only removed by a dental professional for your bi-annual cleanings.
Implant-supported dentures provide a number of benefits and are a great improvement from traditional removable dentures. They do not require any adhesives or powders to help the dentures stick and are very secure and comfortable, significantly improving the ability to chew. Because they preserve bone in the jaw and restore lip-support, implant-supported dentures also help maintain facial structures and minimize wrinkles.
