Thinking about Denture Implants?
Implants can also be used to hold new or sometimes existing dentures. If you find you can’t keep your dentures in or they move when you eat or smile, implants may be able to make your dentures very firm and stable.
Lower dentures are generally the most difficult to keep in place and can usually be stabilized with only 2 implants. The dentures can still be removed to clean, but they won’t fall out when you don’t want them to.
Upper dentures can also use implants for retention. We generally use a precision bar fit, which is custom designed and milled in Titanium giving a very strong and well fitting denture, which can act like your own teeth. It also allows the denture to be much smaller, without the need for all the plastic on the roof of the mouth
