Removable Dentures On Implants
What is an Implant?
Very simply, it is an abutment (support) made of titanium, which has the property of adhering permanently to bony tissue. The new technique developed by a Swedish orthopaedist has been used succesfully since 1965. Dr. Gerald A. Niznick, a Winnipeg Dental School Graduate is the developer of the Zimmer Implant System; the technology leader in the Implant Industry.

Dental Implants are one of the most exciting developments in the history of dentistry.
At any age this is perhaps the perfect solution for you if you are missing all of your teeth and are unable to wear removable dentures comfortably.
Comfortable. Superb retention. It's like having your own natural teeth again. You'll eat normally with your chewing power restored.
Millions of people experience difficulties associated with missing teeth. These difficulties can severely undermine your self confidence and quality of life.
Missing teeth can compromise your health, eating habits, speech and appearance. When teeth are lost, bone loss usually occurs, which in turn will affect your denture. This can result in the denture becoming loose, which may cause difficulty in stabilization of the denture, decreased chewing ability, and deterioration of the jaw structure over time.
The preferred method of tooth replacement is the dental implant. In short, dental implants are a substitute for tooth roots, and form a stable foundation for permanent replacement of teeth. They also act as a support for full and partial dentures, since the implants integrate with the bone to act as an anchor for the replacement teeth, this process is called "Osteointegration".
Why are Dental Implants a Good Choice?
Implant retained dentures are more natural feeling than most types of regular dentures. Implants are a proven restoration option with a long, clinical history and an excellent success rate.
Clients who have chosen implant-supported teeth report that they are happy and comfortable for the first time since the loss of their natural teeth.
