Implant retained dentures are dentures that use implants to hold them in place. Unlike regular dentures, these are not removable and can last a lifetime with proper care and oral hygiene. Implant retained dentures can replace an entire row of teeth or both rows at the same time.

What advantages do implant retained dentures have over other types of dentures?

• Implants keep your dentures firmly in place without the need to rely on adhesives.
• You get peace of mind knowing that the dentures will not slip or fall out.
• You also do not need to worry about changing your diet as the implants allow you to bite into apples or other hard foods without worrying about the dentures moving.
• You can speak and chew without fear of any slippage.
• Implant retained dentures give you a more natural look and are more comfortable to wear.

How does the dentist fit implant retained dentures?

Your dentist will examine and take moulds of your mouth, along with X-rays and possibly a CT scan. They will then design the perfect smile to replace your teeth. If you have low or atrophied bone density, you may need a bone graft first, which will require extra time to heal.

Once your jawbone is ready, your dentist will implant titanium screws into your jaw, which will affix and support the dentures.
Once this heals, you will return for your dentist to create tiny openings in your gums over the screws and attach an abutment and temporary dentures. Once the healing process around the abutments is complete, you’ll return to have your permanent implant-retained dentures affixed.

How many appointments does it take to get implant-retained dentures?

The number of appointments varies depending on how many implants you will need, whether you need bone grafting, and how long it takes to heal. Generally, the entire process can take from 5-12 months.
