Implant supported dentures are different than traditional dentures that often cause bone deterioration and leave space. This extra space can cause complications such as slipping and clicking sounds when eating or speaking. Implant supported dentures are anchored in the mouth and are attached to dental implants serving as a stable tooth replacement. Implant dentures are mostly used on the lower jaw where removable dentures are less stable, but may also be useful for the upper jaw. There are different types of implants used to support dentures.
