Implant Supported Dentures Do your dentures shift, tilt, or wander? Eliminate denture problems with implant retained dentures!
For years denture wearers have had to put up with dentures that don’t stay in place. With implant retained dentures this problem can be a thing of the past.
This method of securing your dentures uses the same type of implant that is used to replace individual teeth. You may need as few as 2 implants to give you dentures that will transform the way you are able to eat and smile.
Once placed, a small receptacle is inset into your denture that “snaps” onto the implant and magnetically holding your dentures in place without slipping. No more messy pastes! We will determine if you are a candidate for conventional implants depending upon the structure of the bone in your jaw and other factors.
