What are Implant Retained Dentures?
An implant supported denture is one type of a variety of overdentures that is supported by an attachment to dental implants. A typical denture is one that is simply placed on the gums and held in place through fit and finish. These are not supported by implants.
An Implant-Retained Denture is used when there are no remaining teeth in the jaw. Providing that the patient has enough bone structure in the jaw, a dental implant is used to anchor the new denture into place. If the patient does not have sufficient bone structure, the Suction Denture can be used instead.
