Implant Retained Dentures is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants.
Implant Retained Dentures are drilled into the bone by an oral surgeon who is part of our dental team. This ensures stability of the denture. A regular denture rests on the gums. An implant supported denture is usually made for the lower jaw because lower dentures tend to be most unstable.
An initial consultation with an oral surgeon is necessary to assess that there is enough bone available to retain the implants. And to determine the best location for the implants.
Implant Retained Dentures can be both fixed and removable depending on the situation which would be assessed by the oral surgeon. Dental implants are proven to be able to last for a very long time.
