Securing Dentures with Implants

Dental implants can be used in a variety of ways to help keep dentures in place. Lower dentures are more difficult to wear and they are typically held in place by the patients lips, cheeks and tongue. Just two implants under a lower denture improve retention of the denture so much that it makes for some of our happiest patients!

Implant Supported Bridges

Patients can also say goodbye to a typical denture all together with an implant supported bridge, sometimes referred to as an “all on 4 denture”. In this case usually 4-6 implants are placed to retain a fixed bridge. This type of restoration is removable only by a dentist and allows patients to choose a replacement for their missing teeth that does not need to be removed at night.
