entures are used to replace missing teeth to once again give patients a full smile. Unlike regular dentures, implant-retained dentures are attached to and support by dental implants. While regular dentures are fitted to sit against the gums, implant-retained dentures are supported by implants.
This type of denture is used when a patient does not have any teeth. When there are no teeth to keep dentures in place, implants must be placed into the jaw to support and secure the dentures. Implant-retained dentures snap onto the implants for a sturdy fit.
Similarly to regular dentures, Implant-retained dentures can be removed and should be removed each night so that they can be properly cleaned.
While it can be frustrating and disheartening to not have any teeth, there is still hope for your smile. If you are a good fit for Implant-retained denture, you can enjoy a full smile ago in no time!
