“What is the biggest problem you experience?” Ask that question of anyone who wears a denture and he or she will likely reply, “fit!” Conventional dentures are held in place only by suction. They tend to slip and wobble, rubbing sore spots and making it difficult to chew. Dr. Sameet Koppikar in Phoenix, AZ suggests a long-term solution. Implant-supported dentures are incredibly stable.
From the “smile side,” an implant-supported denture looks similar to a “floating” denture – it has white teeth and pink gum tissue. That is where the similarity ends.

While the prosthetic is removable, denture implants hold it securely in place. This type of denture dramatically improves oral function and comfort, and it looks natural.
An overdenture may replace an entire arch of teeth, or as a partial denture, it can fit around existing teeth, reducing the need for extractions.
