Implant dentures are a type of over denture supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and an implant-supported denture has an attachment that snaps onto the implants. This type of removable denture uses dental implants as root replacements and acts very similarly to natural, healthy teeth.

How Do Implant Dentures Work?
Once implanted into your jawbone, the implant body and jawbone integrate into one cohesive member and provide a stable and reliable anchor on which your dentures can be fabricated.
Implants can be used to help support both complete and partial dentures. Studies have shown that dental implants preserve bone and reduce gum tissue loss. You can eat, speak, and do everything that natural, healthy teeth can do. This helps you feel better and gain a newfound zest for life, as dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth.
Regular upper dentures stay in place with the help of suction. Denturists generally have to cover the patient's entire palette to guarantee enough suction for upper dentures. For sensitive patients with strong gag reflexes, placing the dentures over the palette makes them highly uncomfortable. Our implant dentures are an innovative solution to this problem. We put these implant dentures in your upper ridge, and they don't require suction, which, in turn, eliminates the need for covering the palette.
In order to stay stable, regular lower dentures rely on the availability of the healthy tissue in your jaw and the ridges' height. Over time, the height of the ridge decreases, which affects your dentures' stability and functionality. On the other hand, our dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots that stay stable against your bony tissue. We connect small components inside the denture to your implants, allowing the denture to “clip/snap” onto your implants.
