These fittings make use of implants to secure dentures to the jaw rather than placing them on the gums. This can provide improved comfort and convenience, as pressure transfers to the bone, rather than the gums, while eating, and also preventing the movement of the denture.
Although they fit to an implant, implant retained dentures are removable and washable just like regular dentures. This can be helpful in achieving optimal comfort and hygiene compared with permanent fittings.
Like any solution to missing teeth, implant retained dentures restore the natural look and feel of your original teeth.
Implant retained dentures provide an alternative for those who experience discomfort with dentures fitted to the gums, or for those who lack the bone support for dentures. By fitting onto implants placed in the bone, greater anchorage is gained, preventing the dentures from moving and causing embarrassment.
If you require a more comfortable, natural feeling solution to missing teeth, implant retained dentures might be a suitable option. Just like your natural teeth, implant retained dentures are connected to the jaw, directing pressure to onto your bone instead of softer tissue.
