FAQs about Denture Implants

There are two types of denture implants: implant retained dentures and implant supported dentures. The main difference is that implant retained dentures can be removed and cleaned at home, while implant supported dentures can only be removed by a dentist.

What are implant retained dentures?

Implant retained dentures are a type of dental implants that hold your dentures in place. You might hear them referred to as snap-in dentures or click-in dentures. Traditional removable dentures will be held in place by suction and specialist adhesives, but implant retained dentures are attached to small implants which are placed in the jawbone. This means they are much more secure and will allow you to talk confidently and eat most foods.

As they are attached to dental implants set in the jaw, they will also be much smaller than traditional removable dentures. This means you will have fewer issues with speaking, eating and swallowing.

What are implant supported dentures?

Implant supported dentures are similar to implant retained dentures, but instead of taking them out to clean every night, they will be fixed in place by your dentist. The dentures will take the full force of your bite and distribute it around your jawbone. This feels much closer to natural teeth. This type of denture implant is a popular alternative to those who don’t wish to have all on 4 dental implants.

Will I be able to eat normally?

Yes! One of the best features of implant supported or retained dentures is that you’ll be able to eat all of your favourite foods. It’s a serious problem that many people with dentures are afraid of eating in social situations. Some people with dentures may also miss out on key nutrients because they tend to stick to soft and easily digestible food, but this isn’t a problem with denture implants. With implant retained dentures or implant supported dentures, you’ll be able to eat what you want and not be afraid of eating in social situations anymore.
