An implant-retained denture is a type of over- denture that is supported by and attached to implants in the jaw. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants. The denture clips on to the implant to keep it in place. An implant-retained denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. It is usual that at least 2 implants are needed to support the denture, but that will be decided depending on your particular needs.
Implant retained dentures usually are made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. However, you can receive an implant-retained denture in either the upper or lower jaw. It is easy to look after your implant retained denture, you will be shown how to remove and clean the denture and how to clean around the implants. As with normal dentures they should be removed before going to bed.
