For a tighter , more secure and better looking solution to missing teeth, implant retained dentures are the solution. Instead of using suction or adhesion, dental implants are placed into your jawbone. The dental implants then serve as anchors for the dentures. The dentures will simply snap onto implants. The end result is less sliding and slipping than traditional, removable dentures. Furthermore, the dental implants stimulate and preserve bone levels.
