Implant Retained Dentures

Although many patients have no problem wearing a full coverage upper denture, some people do find it difficult to wear and eat with a lower denture. For these patients an implant-supported denture can be made.  These dentures are usually supported by 4-6 implants and are smaller than conventional dentures so they are more comfortable to wear.

Benefits of an implant-supported denture:

  • Stability during eating and talking
  • Improved confidence
  • Bone and gum preservation
  • Nutritional benefits
  • Fewer gum sores
