In addition to the use of dental implants for replacing single or multiple missing or damaged teeth, dental implants can also be used to anchor full or partial removable dentures. This provides much greater retention and security than traditional techniques.
Removable partial dentures are usually retained by the use of clasps and rests on teeth adjacent to the missing teeth. These unsightly attachments often place enormous stress on teeth involved and may lead to problems in later years such as decay, periodontal disease, or additional tooth loss. Your dentist then carefully selects ideal sites for dental implants to act as anchors and subsequently places attachments inside the denture where they can’t be seen.
