What are Implant Retained Dentures
The Dental Implant covers a multitude of uses in modern day to day dentistry. Smiles & More use Implant Retained Denture technology to improve stability and retention of loose or ill-fitting dentures.
Implant Supported Dentures, as they are also known, involve using small titanium press studs, which are placed into the jaw bone to create a fixture point from which problematic dentures can anchor too. These then hold the Denture more firmly in place, greatly reducing movement.
If movement in your dentures is making day to day life diffficult or you are relying on denture fixatives to help keep your dentures stable, then denture implants may well be the answer.
Implant Retained Dentures are an ideal solution if you want to feel more confident when eating, laughing, smiling or talking .The vast majority of denture wearers struggle daily with discomfort as a result of loose or ill-fitting dentures. Many avoid any type of social engagements as a result of embarrassment caused by difficulty eating or talking.
Successful placement of denture implants can help solve all these practical and social problems .

Millions of people around the world are missing enough teeth to require the use of a denture. Many of them struggle to keep their dentures secure, particularly in the lower jaw.

Generally there two types of denture implant systems suitable for denture wearers. These are Minidenture implants and Conventional denture implants.
