Implant Supported Dentures (Removable)

 Upper dentures cover the palate and can cause gagging; while lower dentures move constantly and never fit or feel like natural teeth. This makes for a very unhappy individual. The good news is that dentures retained by dental implants can solve this problem. Implant supported dentures provide tremendous support and fixation so eating, speaking and smiling is more comfortable. Patients with loose or painful dentures are great candidates for at least two lower dental implants to hold the lower denture securely. This procedure will eliminate the "floating" effect which causes soreness and will allow for ease with chewing.

Of course, the more implants the more secure the denture. These types of dentures are referred to as overdentures and can be removed by the patient. An upper overdenture can be supported by four to six implants to avoid covering the palate. People with dental implants often say they feel better, they look better, they live better.
