Implant supported removable denture
When your bone structure is not strong enough to support removable dentures, we can use implants to return stability to dentures.
The procedure entails using normal implants with locator attachments or mini implants with ball-and-socket attachments. In both cases we put a small number of implants in each jaw and attach the implants to the dentures with removable fittings.
The procedure normally takes an hour and doesn’t need any cuts or bone exposure.
The implants are installed in the jaw through a very fine insertion into the gum.
The dentures are fitted to the implants straight after the surgery so you can have your dentures tightly fixed to your jaw in the same visit.
The dentures are still removable and you have to take them out for regular cleaning as before.
