Whereas a traditional denture is supported on the gums, a removable implant-retained denture snaps onto implants that are inserted into the jawbone, offering structural support and helping to reduce bone loss.
Though slightly costlier than traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures offer much greater benefits, including chewing efficiency and stability. The procedure, which can be performed under local anesthetic, is minimally invasive and typically offers a quick recovery time.
With less denture base covering the roof of the mouth, implant-retained dentures offer greater comfort, closely approximating the bite strength of natural teeth. They also rarely require adjustments due to steady jawbone stimulation.
