These are also known as implant supported dentures and are typically used when there are no teeth in the upper jaw but have sufficient jaw bones that can hold and support the dental implants. Once fixed they cannot be replaced as they are inserted into the jaw bone. They use the dental implants to stay put. They provide a boost of confidence, chewing ability and speech.


The advantages of implant-retained dentures: They enhance appearance and provide comfort and also prevent bone loss. These dentures are fixed in place by two or three implants that are fixed in each jaw. They provide the much needed stability and reduce the shrinkage of bone and gum. As these are supported by implants it does not need to cover the upper palate, and ensures your sense of taste and speech is unaffected. These two implants in the jaw, help support the dentures and makes sure that you can smile and laugh with confidence. It is just a matter of time where one needs to get used to.

Traditional dentures might be inconvenient, but implant-retained dentures provide a secure and pleasant alternative. If you are missing many teeth or need to replace a whole arch, implant retained dentures may be the best option for you.  

These dentures are strategically attached to dental implants, offering improved stability and reducing the tendency to slip or pain sometimes associated with traditional removable dentures. 

Considering traditional dentures are inconvenient?   

Implant-retained dentures provide a stable and pleasant option.  Traditional dentures can slide and cause discomfort, particularly while eating or speaking. Implant-retained dentures alleviate these difficulties by attaching to surgically implanted dental implants in your jawbone. These implants function as fake tooth roots, ensuring a solid basis for your dentures. 

Benefits of Implant Retained Dentures: 

  1. Increased Stability: Say goodbye to denture sliding! Implant maintained dentures are secure in place, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. 
  2. Improved Comfort: No need to worry about ill-fitting dentures causing discomfort or sores. Implant-retained dentures give a natural sensation that is similar to having your own teeth. 
  3. Increased Confidence: Enjoy a grin to be proud of. Implant maintained dentures appear natural and operate similarly to real teeth, enhancing your confidence in social situations. 
  4. Better Bite Function: Implant-retained dentures improve your ability to chew properly, allowing you to eat a larger range of foods. 
  5. Preserved Jawbone Health: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, helping to minimize bone loss that might occur with conventional dentures.
