What are Implant-Retained Dentures?
Implant-retained dentures combine the advantages of dentures with those of dental implants. You no longer have to rely on suction and soft tissue support for your dentures to stay in place. Implant-supported dentures also don’t put pressure on the gums, as they are supported by the bone.
With this prosthesis, you get to enjoy the stability, aesthetics, and longevity of implants with the affordability of dentures. They are more common for the lower jaw but can also be made for the upper jaw.
Other benefits include:
- Reduces jawbone loss
- Makes chewing easier
- Permanent stability
- Shorter recovery time
How Does Implant-Denture Treatment Work?
Treatment involves the precise placement of small titanium posts into the jawbone. The number of implants needed will depend on the individual case and the type of denture used, but it’s typically four to six implants for an arch.
Local anesthesia or sedation will be administered to ensure your comfort during the procedure. After the implants are placed, several months of healing are usually required to allow for osseointegration, where the implants fuse with the jawbone.
Ideal Candidates for Implant-Retained Dentures
Our doctors may recommend implant-retained dentures for patients with no natural teeth remaining. However, they must still have enough healthy jawbone to support the implants. Patients who cannot afford a full mouth reconstruction with individual implants can also enjoy the benefits of implant-retained dentures.
