If you are missing several (or all) of your teeth, you may face a number of daily struggles. You may find it a challenge to eat your favorite foods, smile with confidence, and speak clearly. Fortunately, you aren’t doomed to cope with those issues forever. An implant-retained denture may be able to permanently replace your lost teeth and restore full dental function. If you are interested in rebuilding your smile with dental implants, contact our team today to schedule your consultation.

How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?

Traditional dentures rely on natural suction or a mild adhesive to stay in the mouth. Therefore, although they provide a natural appearance and a measure of bite force, they are neither as sturdy nor as comfortable as real teeth.

There are basically two types of implant dentures:

The Implant-Retained Dentures Procedure

Once you’ve undergone any necessary preliminary treatment, such as extractions or a bone graft, you’ll have your implant placement surgery. Our dentists perform this minimally invasive procedure right here in our office, so you won’t have to worry about visiting an oral surgeon whom you don’t know. During the surgery, dental implants are placed at strategic locations throughout your jawbone.

After your bone has had a chance to heal from the surgery, we’ll design your custom, implant-supported denture. Once the dental laboratory finishes creating it, you’ll return to our office so we can make sure it fits well before we attach it to your implants.
