Implant dentures or implant-retained dentures provide denture wearers with a new quality of life and dental health. Dental implants have become the restoration of choice for replacing missing teeth. Implant-retained dentures provide superior performance and usability.

Implant-retained dentures are far superior to conventional removable dentures. Chewing ability with complete conventional dentures is about 15% compared to natural teeth. Implant-retained dentures function like natural teeth and provide up to 100% chewing function.

An implant-retained denture is a denture secured in place by using two or more dental implants. These dentures may be removed by the patient.

All of 4 and Teeth in a Day

Also known as All-on-4, this method provides more excellent stability by utilizing 4 implants per upper and or lower dental arch. With minimal invasive placement techniques, patients who have lost or about to lose all their teeth are candidates for the procedure known as “Teeth in a Day”.

Implants Provide Superior Chewing Function

A person’s chewing ability with conventional complete dentures is only about 15% as efficient as with natural teeth. Implant-retained dentures allow a patient to function normally.

Before the advent of implants, a patient who had lost all their teeth was limited to wearing complete dentures. The stability and retention of those dentures were unpredictable. Fit and function are less efficient with age and degeneration of the jaw.

With the use of as few as two implants, we are now able to construct a removable denture that snaps into place and provides excellent retention and stability.

Full or partial dentures can be fitted to titanium posts that are implanted directly into the jaw bone.

Implant retained denture benefits

Implant-retained dentures offer several benefits compared to traditional dentures:

  • The dental implants hold dentures firmly in place, so there is no rubbing or irritation
  • Dentures don’t slip during biting, chewing, or speaking
  • Food shouldn’t be able to work its way under the dentures when you eat
  • Implant-retained dentures promote normal pressure on your bone tissue, reducing the rate of resorption (bone loss) in the jaw over time. Dental implants provide more stability for lower jaw dentures than traditional dentures.

Only patients with good jawbone density are candidates for oral implants. In some cases, the necessary bone support can be created through grafting.
