Implant-Retained Dentures – Colorado Springs

The Magic Of Implant-Retained Dentures

What Are Implant-Retained Dentures?

Unlike traditional dentures, which rely on suction and soft tissue support to stay in place and are removable, implant-retained dentures combine the advantages of dentures with those of dental implants. You get to enjoy the stability, esthetics, and longevity of implants with the affordability of dentures, as well as a much shorter recovery period than a full mouth reconstruction with conventional individual implants would require.

How Do Implant-Retained Dentures Work?

Where conventional dental implants are one per tooth, implant-retained dentures are held in place by only four implants per arch to give them permanent stability. That’s about 24 fewer implants! Because these dentures are supported by the bone, they don’t put pressure on the gums. This makes chewing much easier and helps reduce bone loss in the jaw. They are more common for the lower jaw, but can also be made for the upper jaw.

Who Does Dr. Holsteen Recommend Them For?

Dr. Holsteen may recommend implant-retained dentures for patients with no natural teeth remaining if they still have enough healthy jaw bone to support the implants, particularly when full mouth reconstruction with individual implants is outside the patient’s price range. If you want to learn more about implant-retained dentures, call 719-598-3502 or send us an email.
