Implant-Retained Dentures in Rocky Hill

implant dentureTraditional dentures are an effective way to replace missing teeth, but for many individuals, they are far from ideal. That is why we often recommend implant-retained dentures to our patients who are good candidates for them. They are a comprehensive tooth replacement solution that offers a number of remarkable benefits.

What Are Implant-Retained Dentures?

An implant denture in Rocky Hill, on the other hand, is anchored in place by a series of small titanium cylinders that have been surgically placed within a patient’s jawbone. It usually takes five or six implants to support a full denture.

Both fixed (permanent) and removable implant dentures are available. In some cases, it is even possible for a dentist to retrofit a patient’s traditional denture so that it is able to attach to implants. Other times, a dentist has to create a new prosthesis to go with the implants.
