Implant Supported Dentures

Implant Supported Dentures / Implant Supported Overdentures

Do you have a loose fitting denture? An Implant Supported Denture May Be Able to Help

A regular denture that rests on the gums will have a tendency to fit less firmly, rocking back and forth. A lower denture can be especially loose since it does not get any “suction” like a top denture does. But gone are the days where your only option was a traditional loose fitting denture. Implant supported dentures snap onto attachments on implants securely anchored into your jaw. This provides better stability and less mobility. In some cases, we can use your own canine teeth to support the attachments – saving you the cost of the implant.  Click here to learn more about dental implants for replacing a single or multiple missing teeth.

The implant supported denture (often called an “overdenture”) is a removable and affordable solution to those looking for the security of not having to worry about your “teeth” coming out in social situations.

No more worrying about your denture slipping or using an adhesive to keep it in place. Dental implants improve your quality of life. We have had multiple patients that were once hesitant about going forward with implants who tell us that they wish they had done it sooner.

Denture Implants: Implant Supported Dentures Vs. Implant Retained Dentures

When people talk about “denture implants” or “implant dentures” they are usually referring to implant supported dentures and implant retained dentures –  two similar types of dentures that aim to help a patient keep a denture in place.  While implant supported dentures are held in by implants and the bone in your mouth, implant retained dentures are held in place solely with dental implants.  Naturally we will help determine which denture solution is appropriate for you – to learn more about implant retained dentures you can read our implant retained dentures page.

An implant supported denture has many benefits:

  • Enables you to eat more types of foods
  • Enables you to speak more easily
  • Reduces your worry that your dentures may become loose or fall out
  • Feels more stable than traditional dentures
  • Gives you a more natural feel
  • Improves your chewing capacity vs. a traditional denture
