If you are missing many teeth or require a large number to be extracted, implant-retained dentures are an excellent alternative to traditional removable dentures.
Permanently attached to the mouth with a series of implants, these dentures are significantly more comfortable, will stay firmly in place and look and function just like natural teeth. Since this method only requires around 4-8 implants per arch instead of one implant per tooth, it is less invasive for the patient and allows for a faster healing time. A custom made denture is fixed to the implants, which allows it to be permanently stabilised.
This method also provides benefits beyond function and aesthetics: the implants assist with stimulating the underlying jawbone, preventing deterioration and bone loss that would otherwise occur.
