Implant Retained Dentures
There are times when a removable restoration is better than a fixed bridge.

Dentures are individually designed to suit your smile and face.
By using the best teeth and gum work available a fantastic natural result can be achieved.
Implant retained dentures are securely attached to clips on the implants, they are very sturdy and will not fall out.

– The nylon press stud attachment will wear and need to be replaced. The frequency is variable, however it is very easy to do.
