Denture Implants Can Stabilize Your Denture
Denture patients often find conventional dentures uncomfortable or ill-fitting. Because of this, using dental implants to retain, or support, your denture is becoming popular with patients. Denture implants are a versatile, long-term solution that helps reduce the slipping of a denture and can greatly improve a patient’s ability to eat and speak naturally.
What Exactly is a Denture Implant?
It’s a type of denture that is supported by, and attached to, dental implants versus a regular denture that rests on the gums. With an implant supported denture, the denture “snaps in” to securely fasten to your jaw. The denture can be removed by a patient or doctor for cleaning and care.
Benefits of Denture Implants
- Improved confidence
- Stability while speaking
- Bone and gum preservation
- Improved dental hygiene

- Nutritional benefits from being able to eat
