If you have been living with tooth loss and wear dentures, then you are likely aware of many of the struggles denture-wearers experience on a daily basis. Slipping, a weak bite, messy adhesives and paste, slurred speech—all of these are a common problem with traditional dentures. At Meadowbrook Family Dental in Elk Grove, CA, we offer patients a truly revolutionary denture experience with the help of dental implants! Often called implant-supported dentures, implant retained dentures, or “snap on” dentures, allows your denture to firmly attach to dental implants within your jaw.
Why Choose Implant Retained Dentures?
- Improves stability within the mouth
- More comfortable to wear
- Improves oral & jaw bone health
- Provides a stronger bite
- Enhances speech
How Implant Retained Dentures Work
When you choose implant retained dentures, we are able to affix your denture prosthesis to surgically implanted posts within your mouth. Our team will identify areas of your mouth that have the most jaw bone support and place two to four implants per arch. These implants, once healed, will support the denture. The dental implants not only snap into the denture for a strong and hassle-free hold, but also improve your overall jaw health by stimulating bone growth! This means you won’t experience bone deterioration.
Who is a Candidate for Implant Retained Dentures?
Almost anyone who is missing teeth or has a mouth of failing teeth can choose this solution! While implants do require adequate bone volume to be placed, there are options to make that possible even with extreme bone loss. Patients who are current denture wearers often choose this option because it is very similar to what they have been living with, but provides drastically more benefits and overall comfort!
