Dentures & Partials An Overview
Dentures and partials are commonly used to address the top arch, bottom arch, or both arches of missing teeth. Depending on a patient’s specific needs, dentures can be removable or secured into place using dental implants.

Implant Supported Dentures
Implant secured dentures offer patients a more stable, long lasting solution to replace their missing teeth. Implant secured dentures do not shift, so patients do not need to worry about embarrassing slippage during eating, speaking, or laughing. With implant secured dentures, patients can enjoy the benefit of a natural looking, comfortable tooth replacement solution.
Benefits of Implant Secured Dentures:
- Implant secured dentures offer a more stable foundation
- Patients do not need to worry about slippage
- Allows for normal speaking and chewing function
- Patients experience improved speech and confidence
- Decreases gum irritation
Dental implants are considered one of the most successful tooth replacement options. Traditional dentures are supported using the surrounding bone structure and gums. Over time, traditional dentures may begin to affect the supporting soft tissues. Implant secured dentures rely on dental implants for support, which does not irritate the soft tissue in the mouth. Dental implants also help promote jawbone stimulation, which helps reduce the risk of future bone loss.
