What do implant-retained dentures do?
These dentures combine aspects of implant and denture treatment to provide a long-term and effective solution for tooth loss. These dentures offer much more than standard dentures and could be just what you’ve been looking for if you’ve experienced painful or poorly-fitted dentures in the past.
With implant-retained dentures, the dentures are secured in place using dental implants. Implants are small rods made of titanium that are inserted into the sockets in the jaw bone to take on the role of an artificial tooth root. Implants provide a similar level of stability to a natural tooth root. This means that the denture is completely stable and you won’t find it slipping out of place or losing its perfect fit.
With implant-retained dentures, the implants are placed first. This procedure involves positioning the implants in small holes in the bone of the jaw. Once the implants have integrated with the bone tissue, the denture is ready to be fitted and the teeth will look and feel like healthy, strong, natural teeth.
Implant-retained dentures boast a host of benefits, from increased stability and support to natural aesthetics, convenience and long-term results. Unlike normal dentures, which are held in place by the suction of the gums, these dentures are anchored by implants and this not only gives greater support, but also improves the function of the teeth. With implants, you can enjoy increased bite power, so no foods are off-limits, as well as enhanced facial aesthetics.
