Prior to the advent of implants, a patient who had lost all of his or her teeth was limited to wearing complete dentures. The stability and retention of those dentures was unpredictable. With the use of as few as two implants we are now able to construct a removable denture which snaps into place and provides excellent retention and stability. With the use of more than two implants, it is possible to make a fixed denture or fixed bridge which is just like having one’s own teeth.
