Implant Retained Dentures: A Better Implant Option for Our Patients in Munster, IN

Young Charming Lady Sit In Dentist Office

For our patients requiring the replacement of all teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw, we are happy to offer implant retained dentures as an alternative treatment option to traditional dentures. With implant retained dentures, we replace missing teeth on the lower and/or upper arch using fewer implants than what was typically needed to replace an entire arch. These implants are then used to provide a sturdy, stable foundation for your new prosthesis. This eliminates the need for a bulky, floating denture that is removed by you daily.  The implant retained denture is securely tightened into place and can only be removed by your dentist.

If you would like more information on implant retained dentures, please call (219) 836-4214 or request an appointment with Dr. Miller today!

What are the Benefits of Implant Retained Dentures?

There are several key benefits to choosing an implant retained denture for a full-arch replacement. Here are a few:

  • It uses fewer implants than the standard procedure to support a full arch.
  • They improve your appearance by replacing your missing teeth, while providing improved overall function for eating and speaking.
  • Eliminates the need to remove your prosthesis after meals and every night for cleaning like you would with traditional dentures.
  • The upper prosthesis will no longer cover your palate. The implant retained denture is shaped like a horseshoe eliminating the bulky acrylic that covers the roof of your mouth.
  • Is screwed into the implants and can only be removed by your dentist.
  • Added stability with a custom titanium bar that is milled into the prosthesis and is secured into the implants.
  • Helps to preserve the surrounding bone from shrinking over time.
  • More stability to enjoy harder, stronger foods that require more chewing.
  • Esthetically more pleasing.
