Dentures can be a bit benefit to those with missing teeth: they give you a younger look, let you smile, help you eat, and are an essential part of your daily life. But dentures also have their shortcomings, and the one you likely deal with most is that they don’t always stay in place, leading to embarrassing situations with friends and family.
At Panama City Smiles we don’t want any of our patients to have to tolerate slipping, uncomfortable dentures. That’s why we offer implant-retained dentures to help stabilize and hold your dentures in the perfect position!
What Are Implant Retained Dentures?
implant retained dentures are just like traditional dentures with one big twist: they use four dental implants to hold them in place. You still take them out at night but they won’t move unless you want them to! Dental implants are small titanium screws that are the same size as the root of a natural tooth. They are placed in your jaw and once healed have an incredibly strong bond with your bone.
We top your dental implants with one of two systems: either a bar or a series of metal balls that match to clasps or sockets on your dentures. When you wake up in the morning you simply pop your dentures in and are ready for the day!
Benefits Of Implant Retained Dentures
You’re probably wondering if implant retention is for you. We’re confident that you’ll love the results and wonder how you ever lived with regular dentures before!
Ever have sensitivity from all that pressure on your gums? It’s a thing of the past with implant retained dentures! Because they rest on dental implants that are anchored to bone the forces from chewing are distributed in the same way they are with natural teeth! You’ll be able to eat with ease and no worry about painful, red, irritated gums.
Eat Your Favorite Foods Once Again!
Dentures might be beneficial in a lot of ways but not when it comes to eating. You’ve probably modified your diet quite a bit since you’ve been wearing dentures but with implant retention you won’t have to! With very few exceptions you’ll be able to eat all your favorite foods without worrying about your teeth falling out of your mouth!
Talk And Smile With Ease!
Ever have problems speaking in your dentures? With implant retention they’ll stay in the right spot, allowing you to smile and speak just like you did with natural teeth. Imagine never having to worry about an interrupted conversation again!

By eating well you’ll have the energy to do all the activities you’ve been missing out on and be able to do them with ease and confidence.
