Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures address many of the issues and challenges of traditional ones They reduce movement during eating or talking, and dental implants are the only form of tooth replacement that stimulates bone growth, rather than allowing the jaw to atrophy.

An implant is a titanium screw that replaces the tooth root. The implants are embedded directly into the jawbone, providing an extremely stable foundation for an individual crown or a full denture appliance.

The denture itself is still made from acrylic. However, rather than floating on the gum, the appliance hooks onto the implants using a latching system. As a result, the denture functions exactly like normal teeth and will reduce movement during eating or talking.

Implant-supported dentures may be removable, depending on your preferences:

  • Removable dentures affix to conventional dental implants, mini-implants, or a bar that is connected to the implants. They can be easily removed for cleaning at night or following meals.
