Implant-supported dentures are complete or partial dentures that are attached to dental implants. A dental implant is a device (made from titanium, a metal alloy that the body readily accepts) that is inserted into the jaw to support a prosthetic tooth or teeth, acting like an artificial tooth root. Over time, the jawbone integrates (fuses) with the implant surface, providing a firm anchor to support a denture. Northview Denture Clinic provides implant-supported dentures in Edmonton and the surrounding area.
