Implant-Retained Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures


he most significant difference between traditional and implant-retained dentures is that the latter is less secure. Implant-retained dentures are supported by and attached to dental implant posts surgically placed in your jawbone. Many people also call these snap-in dentures, as they’re created to snap securely into place on top of the dental implant.

Since traditional dentures don’t have the extra support, they’re more likely to slip out of your mouth while talking or eating.

Ideal Candidates for Implant-Retained Dentures

Those who are missing teeth can get dentures, but implant-retained dentures require sufficient jawbone, healthy gums, and good overall health. Gum grafting is an option for patients who need more healthy jawbone tissue. To ensure your snap-in dentures don’t fail, you should also be a non-smoker or quit smoking before considering this treatment.

  • More secure

  • No need for adhesives

Why an oral surgeon vs. dentist?

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons receive specialized training to treat a variety of conditions affecting the head, neck, face, mouth, and jaws. Although a general dentist may perform simple tooth extractions -- more complex surgeries, such as removing wisdom teeth, are what we are specifically trained to do. Plus, we have advanced equipment to make procedures more affordable, and significantly more comfortable, for you to have the best overall experience.
