IMPLANT RETAINED DENTURES
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.
