Implant Retained Dentures
Do you have difficulty in speaking or eating with your dentures?
After long-term denture wear, the underlying bone recedes. The more often a patient wears a denture, the greater the bone loss. Yet 80% of denture patients wear the dentures day and night, which accelerate the bone loss and reduce the chances of successful future dental implant surgeries.

As the bone recedes, the denture starts developing sore spots and start hurting the patient on eating. They also become loose over a period of time, all this makes denture wearing uncomfortable.
A more retentive treatment option would be one using dental implants to support the denture.
Dental implants can be used to stabilize your denture, preventing it from moving and giving you the comfort of a perfect fit.
Wearing a conventional full denture can be uncomfortable as they can be restrictive in terms of speech and eating. Issues regarding gagging, taste, speech and instability are also often complained about.
No One Wants Loose Dentures and that’s why we recommend you get your implant supported dentures.
There are many benefits to using overdentures such as:
- Improved digestion – If your dentures are held by using adhesives, you might be interested to know that overdentures use dental implants, making them more stable than adhesive held dentures. Chewing becomes easier assisting the breakdown of food in your stomach and more thorough absorption of nutrients.
- Reduced bone loss – Your overdenture simulates and stimulates your jaw bone when you chew. This reduces and stops shrinkage which is generally the result of missing teeth.
- Retained facial structure and features – As bone height is maintained, the face shape does not change and denture adjustments are far less likely to be required, leaving you with long-term, comfortable dentures.
- Better taste – With dental implant supported dentures it is not necessary to have material covering the majority of the palate as retention is gained mechanically from the dental implants, so taste is unaffected and gagging is reduced if not completely eliminated.
In this, the denture is removable by the patient, or fixed and only removable by a dentist.
