Discover the difference implant retained dentures can make for a natural smile and solid bite by visiting Chrenek Dental Clinic in Grande Prairie. Dental implants are replacement teeth that are secured to the jaw via titanium anchors. A retention bar can be attached to no less than five implants, allowing a full set of upper or lower dentures to then be mounted onto the retention bar.
Dentures that are installed over implants offer several options. The dentures can be attached with a clip that is anchored by the implants, allowing you to remove the plate for cleaning, or the dentures can be what are known as “fixed detachables," which can be removed only by a dental professional. This type of denture is regarded as the option that is closest in appearance to natural teeth.
