Implant Retained Overdentures

Implant retained overdentures are the denture alternative Townsville patients prefer!

Dental Implants are a wonderful advancement in the denture world, giving patients the alternative of a far more secure and stable denture than conventional dentures (false teeth).


First, your dentist (not a dental prosthetist) implants a permanent small titanium screw in your jaw. Next, we wait for the healing process to complete. Once healed and secure, these small screws and their attachments act similarly to a press stud. They also provide mechanical retention far more superior to the natural suction force of original dentures.


  • Improve confidence and quality of life
  • Aid in prevention of unnecessary bone loss
  • No more loose dentures
  • Increased comfort, better fit and fewer sore spots
  • Greater biting force when eating
  • Improve nutrition, eat a broader range of foods

Dental Implants Supported Dentures


Dental implants are small titanium screws that are inserted into your jawbone by a dentist or dental specialist. (NB This is NOT performed by our team of dental prosthetists. Dentures Direct create the implant-retained overdentures that clip onto the implants, once placed and healed.)


These little screws then act as an artificial tooth root. Once the screw is inserted, bone tissue will start to adhere to the screw and become a permanent fixture. This process is call osteointegration and takes no less than three to four months before the implant can withhold any forces.


Once the implant has fully integrated and is totally secure, your dentist or dental specialist will attach the rest of the components to the implant that will provide the mechanical retention for your denture.

Implant Retained Overdentures FAQs

Am I a good candidate for an implant retained overdenture?

The best candidates for implant retained overdentures are individuals who have lost all of their natural teeth and have sufficient bone density in the jaw to support the implants. Your dental prosthetist can determine whether you are a good candidate for this type of denture after a thorough examination.

How do I care for an implant retained overdenture?

Caring for an implant retained overdenture is similar to caring for traditional dentures. You should brush the denture daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a nonabrasive denture cleaner. It is also important to keep the implants clean by brushing them gently with a toothbrush and toothpaste.

Are implant retained overdentures permanent?

Implant retained overdentures are not permanent, as they can be removed for cleaning and at night. However, they are typically more stable and comfortable than traditional dentures and may last for many years with proper care.
