How Do Denture Implants Work?

Implants for dentures are placed within the jaw bone to hold them securely in place. Because the implants are made of titanium, this material fuses to the living bone, which happens during a process called osseointegration — from the Latin osseous meaning “bony” and integrate meaning “to make whole.” Then, once these implants are securely attached, your dentures can then be attached to the implants.

There are two types of denture implants:

Frequently Asked Questions

How many dental implants do I need for dentures?

Most patients need between two and six implants for the upper and lower arch. This will depend on many things, however, including the health of your jaw bone and how many teeth are on the restoration.

What are dental implants made of?

Dental implants are most commonly made of titanium. This durable material is ideally suited for dental implants because of its strength, cost-effectiveness, and ability to fuse with your bone, making it a permanent solution for most patients.
