Implant Retained Dentures

What are implant retained dentures?

Dentures are often necessary to provide enough mid face support to restore a more normal facial appearance.


Implants are used to secure a bar onto which a denture is clipped.This helps stabilise a removable denture.


Loss of teeth can have a profoundly ageing effect on the facial appearance.When teeth are lost the bone shrinks, especially in the upper jaw. Implants help to hold the replacement teeth and associated gum work in the correct position to help alleviate the problems of the missing teeth.


Implant retained dentures are very stable when chewing, when laughing, smiling and kissing. The bars are customised on an individual basis.
