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, the 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.
They provide an alternative for those who experience discomfort with dentures fitted to the gums, or for those who lack the bone support for dentures. Implants create an anchor for the denture to the mouth. This prevents the deutres from moving around whilst talking and eating.
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, they are connected to the jaw, directing pressure to onto your bone instead of softer tissue.
