The world of implant dentistry serves to also improve the traditional techniques of dentures and help reduce their discomfort and mobility. Dentures have long been a problem for patients as the dentures are wholly supported by soft and tender gum and the gum bears all the load when the patient bites down – sometimes causing ulcers and bleeding.
While there are a myriad of options for restoring missing teeth with dental implants, it is also possible to add dental implants to help anchor an existing full denture. Lower dentures are one of the most unsuccessful and untolerated prosthetics and by adding a minimum of two dental implants, the fit and retention of the denture is completely transformed.
An implant supported denture has a leading benefit over implant solutions that are fixed – patients are able to remove them to complete their daily cleaning care routine with ease.
The cost of an implant supported denture starts at $5,900. This is a package pricing that includes the dental implant screws, the implant abutments and relining/attachment to an existing denture. Please do note that the price may vary for each specific case as there are specific factors and clinical conditions that will play a part in the reconstruction of missing teeth. For example, some patients may require a bone graft, or a new denture or complete sedation services. For an accurate free quote, please book in for a complimentary consultation.
