Implants are often used to help keep dentures in place. Implants add stability and retention to the dentures by having them attach to the implants. There are many options for denture-wearers in regards to implants, depending on how many implants are placed. Call 504-889-1209 to discuss which options would best suit your specific goals!
Overdentures, or snap-on dentures, utilize implants to add retention, but they are still taken in and out by the patient. This is a great option for patients who are struggling with dentures that move when they talk or eat. The added retention from the implants makes wearing dentures much more comfortable for the patient!
Dr. Neumeyer offers complimentary implant consults to discuss which option would be best for you.
An all-on four denture is screwed into the jaw and is not taken out by the patient. This option looks, feels, and functions like natural teeth and is a great option for patients that have been struggling with dentures or need dentures but wish to have something as close to natural teeth as we can get.
