Traditionally, patients fix a set of full dentures in place by suction to the gums, often with the help of a special adhesive, which can result in occasional slippage.
We use Dental Implants to hold implant-retained dentures in place. These screws act as artificial tooth roots and provide an anchor-point on which to attach your dentures.
Your dentist will place approximately two to four implants in the jaw to hold a full set of dentures in place. Your dentist will determine how many implants you will need after a thorough examination of your gums and jaw.
There are many benefits of implanted-retained dentures. The wearer will feel more confident because their dentures will be secure in their mouth, providing fully restored chewing functionality with no slippage.
Implanted retained dentures are also more comfortable, as we use less material when manufacturing the prosthetic teeth. Additionally, the implants help to prevent and even reverse bone loss in the jaw.
