Implant Supported Dentures

Dentures supported by implants were developed to help both partial and fully edentulous patients regain a quality of life.

To keep the dentures in place we use dental implants. These are small titanium anchors that are permanently placed into the upper and/or lower jaw bone. Throughout time, the implant integrates with your bone and acts very much like your natural tooth root in your jaw bone. This integration not only creates a stable foundation to attach single and multiple teeth or dentures to, it also slows bone loss.

There are several solutions that help anchor dentures to implants. Whether you want the dentures to be removable or permanently fixed to the implants.

Benifits

  • HELPS RETAIN YOUR FACIAL FEATURES AND STRUCTURE

    The natural process of resorption (shrinkage) that occurs when you have an unhealthy or under-stimulated jaw as a result of missing teeth can, throughout time, cause the distance between your nose and your chin to shrink. This shrinking can make your face look “sunken-in” and prematurely aged.
  • BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE

    Implant supported dentures fit more securely. You can smile, laugh and eat with confidence.
  • SLOWS BONE LOSS

    Whether your denture is retained by remaining natural teeth or by dental implants, it will continue to stimulate your jaw bone when you eat/chew. This stimulation will slow or even stop the resorption (shrinkage) process that is natural when teeth are missing.
  • PROMOTES BETTER DIGESTION

    Poor fitting dentures are often held in by using adhesives. Implant anchored dentures are more stable than adhesives. Improved stability allows you to chew food more thoroughly, helping your stomach break down food more efficiently, and absorb more nutrients.
