Implant Dentures

A partial or complete denture is an option for people who are missing multiple teeth or all of their teeth. Patients may find these ill-fitting, unpleasant, or loose in some situations.

Because of advancements in dental technology, we may now secure a denture or a new set of teeth to your jaw with as few as two dental implants. You have the option of leaving the dentures removable, so you can clean them at home and replace them, but with the implant connection, they will be very stable and secure.

You also have the option of permanently attaching the dentures to the jaw with four or more implants.

An implant denture is an excellent alternative for people who have a loose top or lower full denture. According to the American Dental Association, inserting only two implants in the lower jaw is the standard of care for dentures. These two impalnts can significantly improve the stability of the removable lower complete denture and boost patient satisfaction.

Implant Dentures:

  • Improved Chewing Capacity
  • More Stability of their denture
  • Elimination of denture adhesives
  • Increased Confidence
  • Improved Speech
  • Flexibility of being able to remove dentures at home when needed
  • Affordable treatment
