Implant-retained Dentures at BU Dental
Benefits of Implant-retained Dentures
Implant-retained dentures are an effective dental treatment option for people who have lost most or all their teeth. They provide numerous benefits compared to traditional removable dentures.
Implant-retained dentures can dramatically improve your quality of life by:
- Enhancing stability
- Improving chewing
- Preserving the jawbone
- Increasing comfort and speech
The procedure includes the creation of a new denture and the placement of two implants in your lower jaw to hold the denture in place.
Most of our denture restorations are digitally produced which means they are highly accurate and predictable and made from advanced materials to create dentures that are stronger, more hygienic and less porous as compared to a conventional denture. Digital records can be stored and used for future reference as needed.
To determine whether you’re a good candidate, you can schedule a consultation appointment, during which we will conduct an examination and take X-rays. This consultation appointment will take about three hours.
Cost & Financing
The total cost of the denture and implants is $1,460. This fee may be covered in part by your dental insurance including MassHealth. In some instances, additional procedures may be required, which could increase the total cost of treatment.

If we think dentures are right for you, we will take impressions of your mouth that will be used to construct dentures that fit you perfectly. It will take approximately five visits to fabricate your new dentures. The final step is placing the implants. Typically, we can complete this work in two additional appointments. In some cases, additional appointments may be needed.
Your dental care will be provided by third and fourth year dental students provide care under the supervision of experienced faculty members
