Implant Retained Dentures
Unlike conventional dentures, removable implant-retained dentures are supported by and attached to a minimum of two dental implants. Implant-retained dentures have special attachments which connect onto the implants secured in the mouth. Implant-retained dentures provide stability, increased chewing efficiency, retention and also eliminate the need for denture adhesives.
Prior to fabricating an implant supported denture, you will be referred to a dentist who specialises in dental implant surgery. The dentist will determine if you have sufficient bone to support dental implants and if you are a suitable candidate for implant retained dentures.
Benefits of implant-retained dentures:
- Improved confidence
- Improved chewing efficiency
- Increased stability & comfort
- Decreases bone shrinkage
