Loose dentures may damage your confidence and make it difficult to enjoy your favourite foods. With dental implant retained dentures, you can secure your dentures in place without the need for messy and unreliable adhesives.
Implant retained dentures are dental implants placed in your jawbone which provide a stable anchor for your dentures to “lock” in place. You can still remove your dentures for cleaning, but you’ll be able to laugh, smile, chew and speak with confidence that your dentures won’t slip out of place.
If you are in good general health and currently wear dentures, you could be an excellent candidate for this dental implant procedure. If you’re unhappy with your current dentures and find them uncomfortable, this treatment plan can offer you some relief.
With implant retained dentures, the force of your bite is absorbed by the implant in your jawbone instead of your soft tissue. This means you can eat most foods, including crunchy and hard food such as crusty bread or raw vegetables.
