What Are Denture Implants?

Denture implants are dental implants that secure permanent dentures. Dental implants are small titanium rods that become “new” tooth roots by being placed into the jawbone and then healing (3-6 months) and then having dental crowns placed on top. Dental implants plus dental crowns become “new” teeth. Onto these new, sturdy, attractive dental implants we secure permanent dentures.

What Are the Advantages of Permanent Dentures?

  • Traditional dentures are attached to your gums with messy, sticky adhesive. Not only is this messy, the adhesive doesn’t always work properly and the denture can slip, click or even fall out. Additionally, some denture wearers have experienced speech defects as a result of wearing dentures. You also have food limitations, as dentures don’t always stay secure if you eat certain foods.
  • Permanent dentures that are secured to denture implants stay in place. They are permanently connected, so gone is the need to use messy adhesives, embarrassment because they click, slip or fall out. You can speak properly. And best, of all, you can eat whatever you like!
  • Permanent dentures that are secured to denture implants look like your natural teeth. Smile, laugh, pose for the camera. Your smile will look completely natural.
  • Permanent dentures that are secured to denture implants feel completely natural. Sometimes with traditional dentures, they don’t fit properly and can chafe your gums or cause pain. Permanent dentures that are secured to denture implants don’t have the same issues with pain and discomfort for the patient.
