Dental implants can be placed in the jawbone to secure dentures or partial dentures. Implant-supported dentures are either removable or fixed into place. A removable implant-supported denture requires fewer implants and allows the patient to remove the denture for cleaning purposes.
A fixed implant-supported denture requires more implants and is non-removable. (If necessary, a prosthodontist can remove it.) Implant-supported dentures provide stability and security that many denture wearers enjoy. An upper implant-supported denture exposes the palate to normal feeling and tasting.
