If you are replacing multiple teeth, our dentist may recommend using an implant-retained denture rather than single tooth implant restorations to complete your treatment. Implant-retained dentures offer a stable, long-lasting solution for your missing teeth. They are similar to traditional dentures in form, but are stabilized by a few strategically placed dental implants. These implants fix the dentures permanently in your mouth to give you a solution that allows you to speak, eat and smile without worry that your appliance will shift or come loose.
Our dentist will use four, six or eight implant to anchor the dentures in your mouth. Prior to the implant placement, he will examine your entire mouth to determine the number of implants you will need. After the implants are placed and you have had time to heal, the denture will be attached on top to complete your treatment.
Implant-retained dentures are a very cost-effective solution, and in many cases existing dentures can be retrofitted for implants so that you will not need a new denture.
