What Are Implant Dentures?

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots. When they get inserted beneath the gumline, they bond with the surrounding tissue. They therefore provide an extremely sturdy base for a denture. Implant dentures tend to be incredibly reliable and long-lasting. They feel much more natural than traditional forms of tooth replacement.

Depending on your circumstances, our team might recommend that you get either a fixed implant denture or a removable one.

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

As their name implies, fixed/permanent implant dentures are designed to stay in the mouth 24/7. In fact, they can only be removed with the help of a dental professional. They typically require 4 – 6 implants as support. Many patients choose them because they offer the strongest and most convenient tooth replacement experience.
