Traditional dentures are considered by some to be uncomfortable, ill-fitting, or unstable. On the other hand, implant supported dentures provide more stability but are also more expensive. An implant retained denture, one of the teeth replacement options we offer at Edgewater Dental in Sugar Land, Texas, is a convenient and affordable mix between the two that stays in place and allows you to eat all your favorite foods.
What Are Implant Retained Dentures?
Implant retained dentures like implant supported dentures use dental implants as anchors for artificial teeth. The difference is that implant retained dentures require fewer dental implants and distribute the bite force across the gums.
Another major difference is that implant retained dentures are removable. However, unlike traditional dentures, they do not require adhesives and are simply locked in place.
Implant retained dentures maximize existing bone density. They look and function like natural teeth, providing stability and allowing you to chew and speak normally.
What Are the Benefits of Implant Retained Dentures?
The benefits of implant retained dentures include:
- They instantly restore your ability to eat and speak normally
- They stay in place without adhesives and provide stability
- They help preserve jawbone density
- They minimize the risk of gum irritation
- They are a durable and long-term solution for tooth replacement
- They have a high success rate
- They improve your quality of life
- They are an affordable solution for tooth loss
Implant Retained Dentures at Edgewater Dental in Sugar Land, Texas

For tooth loss, we provide several advanced options, including implant retained dentures for full arch restorations. This option is affordable, requires minimal preparation, and provides numerous long-term benefits.
Our procedure for implant retained dentures starts with an initial consultation to determine the right solution for you. Next, based on X-rays and impressions, we will create a comprehensive treatment plan.
The next step is the first surgery, for placing the implants. The procedure is performed under anesthesia and requires a few months for the implants to fuse with the jawbone.
Once the healing is complete, we will perform a second surgery exposing the tops of the implants and placing a collar and then the abutments the implant retained denture will sit on.
