What Is an Implant Retained Denture?

Watch this video to learn more about how we utilize dental implant to bring retention and stability to full and partial dentures.

An implant retained denture is basically a denture that’s held on by implants, by a mini implant, usually. And what it’s basically doing is instead of the denture floating in your mouth, or you have to use some Fixodent to kind of keep it in place, you can have implants placed. Usually, these implants will actually “snap” the denture into place. For a lower, they’re wonderful, and usually you put four on the bottom. For an upper bone, it’s not as good as the bottom bones, so you usually have to put six up on the top.

For most people, a regular denture kind of works…because you get a little more suction just the way your body’s done. But the bottom is with your tongue, and with the way your anatomy is, that’s a little tougher. So minis work if regular dentures don’t work, and that’s why we offer a complimentary exam. So, if you come in, we can take a look and evaluate you. Maybe just a denture is all you need, but you may want something a little more if you want a little extra.
