Lower Implant Denture

Lower implant dentures tend to be less bulky than regular dentures because less acrylic is needed for retention as opposed to a regular denture. The All-on-4 lower implant denture is supported by implants so much less material is required.

Yes, they are smaller

Yes, they are less bulky because they do not have to have an extended flange on the lower and the upper does not have to have the palate covered with plastic. Implant retained Dentures are either attached with screws or they have special attachments to have them snap onto the implants. This added retention makes it unnecessary to have larger coverage for stability and suction which is required by non implant retained dentures.
