These are used for those who still have teeth present in the mouth, but are missing some teeth. These dentures have a clip attached to them, which anchors them onto the existing teeth in order to give you a stable and secure denture.
These dentures are the latest technology in order to create secure dentures. Dental implants are small metal rods, that, if you were replacing one tooth, would have a crown placed on top to provide a natural looking smile solution. If you are missing many more teeth, and are unhappy with the fit of your denture, your dentist may suggest implant-retained dentures. This involves a few dental implants being placed but, instead of a crown being placed on top, your denture is! As the implants are placed into the jaw, they become a very stable anchor for your denture, preventing your denture from slipping out of place.
