Introducing Implant-Supported Dentures

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

Most people have lost one or more teeth by adulthood. Many are missing enough teeth to put their smiles on hold, but stable, secure, affordable quality dentures can turn back the clock. One of the most secure options is implant-supported dentures; these are fixed or removable overdentures that attach to permanent surgical implants in your jaw. Unlike traditional dentures, you don’t have to use messy adhesives to keep them in place. Implant-supported dentures are unlikely to affect your speech, slide around in your mouth, fall out, or produce embarrassing noises.

How Implant-Supported Dentures Work

An implant-supported denture is an ideal option for people who don’t have any teeth but have enough healthy jawbone to accommodate the implants safely. Special attachments fasten or snap onto the implant base for a secure fit. These dentures are usually created for the lower jaw since regular upper dentures rarely need extra support, but they can be crafted for both upper and lower jaws.

Ball-Retained and Bar-Retained Dentures

Two types of implant-supported dentures are available. Both include a gum-colored acrylic base fitted with natural-looking acrylic teeth, and both require a minimum of two implants for proper support. Bar-retained dentures rely on a thin metal bar attached to implants placed in the jawbone. Either the bar or denture is fitted with fastening devices. When placed over the bar, the denture is secured by the clips or fasteners. Ball-retained dentures, also called stud-attachment dentures, are held in place by ball-shaped metal parts that attach directly to implants in the jaw. When the balls are aligned with corresponding sockets on the denture, they connect to keep it secure. Both denture types are effective and aesthetically pleasing. If you are seeking implant-supported dentures, your dentist in Englewood can determine which type is best for you.
