Through implant supported dentures, we can restore that for you and having you eating what you want and be a healthier you!  There are different options within implant supported dentures so let us help! 

What is a Implant Supported Denture and How Does it Work?

Regular dentures rest on top of your gums, causing bone deterioration and leaving space that can cause complications such as loose fit, slipping, or clicking sounds.  Implant supported dentures are anchored in the mouth through attachment to dental implants.  This type of dentures is most often used in the lower jaw where removable dentures are less stable, but can also be used in the upper jaw also.

Bar-Retained Dentures

When fitting bar-retained dentures, three or more dental implants are placed into the jaw bone.  Metal bars then run along the gum line between each of the implants.  The denture rests on the bars, attaching with metal clips.  This structure secures the denture’s placement without the need for the steel studs used in ball-retained dentures.  Many patients have opted for this alternative as it eliminates the rubbing, loosening, and discomfort associated with traditional removable dentures.

Ball-Retained Dentures

Ball-retained dentures, also called stud-attached dentures, function with a ball and socket mechanism. The denture base has several sockets that line up with balls placed on dental implants in the jaw bone.  The balls and sockets fit together for an extremely secure fit, allowing for an open palate denture. Ball and socket attachment is even less likely to slip or move, restoring the patient’s ability to eat and speak regularly
