What Are Implant Retained Dentures?
The roots of your natural teeth stimulate the jaw bone. When teeth are missing, the bone is no longer stimulated, and it begins to shrink and collapse.
Dental implants are the highest standard of care for tooth replacement because they replace your natural tooth roots, and continue to stimulate the jaw bone. Once the dental implants are placed, a process known as osseointegration takes place, where the bone and the implant integrate into one cohesive member and provide a stable and reliable anchor.
Dental implants can also be used to retain full or partial dentures. In studies, dental implants are shown to preserve bone and reduce gum tissue loss. With dental implant retained dentures, you can eat, talk and laugh with confidence.
Historically, dental implants have a high clinical success rate. Patients who have opted for dental implants often remark how similar the implant feels to their own natural teeth.
