Why Choose Abington Family Dental Care for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

Implant dentures are secured in the mouth via prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants). They are much more secure and long-lasting than traditional dentures, which are held in place via natural suction or a mild adhesive.

Depending on your circumstances, we may recommend one of the following types of implant dentures:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

These are permanently attached to the implants that support them via small connector pieces called abutments. They are only removed at dental appointments, so patients can treat them in almost the same way they would treat natural teeth. It usually takes 4 – 6 implants to secure a fixed implant denture in place.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures, sometimes called overdentures, are easy for patients to take out on their own. They are held in place via ball socket attachments or a bar. It usually requires 2 – 5 implants to keep an overdenture in place.

The Implant Denture Procedure
