Implant retained prosthesis provide more natural appearance it fuses within the bone, and no lay person can appreciate the difference between natural and prosthetic tooth. It restores arch continuity without even damaging and altering adjacent teeth.
Implants increase fit of denture and prosthesis and provide resistance to dislodgement with greater retention, resistance, support and stability. This is specifically advantageous in elderly patients who require complete dentures with poor quality and quantity of bone. Implant supported dentures provide far greater experience than conventional complete denture. It is firmly anchored in bone and eliminates the use of frustrating denture adhesives.
