Implant-Retained Dentures

A revolutionary alternative to removable denture are implant-retained dentures. They can replace a full arch of teeth and are anchored by implants (fixed prosthodontics) surgically placed in the jaw bone. Implant-retained denture create a permanent and secure solution that traditional denture do not offer. Once the dentures are placed, they do not slip, slide, or come out. They do not require adhesives. We offer two methods of placing implant-retained denture: All on Four and All on Six. Depending on mouth size and jaw bone density, we will determine which method is best for your case.

  • All on Four – a full arch of denture is anchored to four implant
  • All on Six – a full arch of denture is anchored to six implants

We also offer “Same-Day Smiles” – which gives you the option of immediate tooth replacement on the same day you have implants placed!
