Offering same day dental implants  by a specialty trained implant dentist

The 2-Implant Overdenture

In this option, two implants are placed in the anterior region of the lower jaw. After a 3 month healing period, your regular denture is made to "snap in" to the implants. This treatment offers better retention of the denture. However, it does not offer better biting force or relief from sore gums. The denture still relies on covering a large surface area of your gums for support. This type of treatment is only done for the lower jaw.
