To ensure a secure fit and reduce the risk of complications associated with traditional dentures, implant supported dentures are attached to a set of dental implants. These can be removed for cleaning but patients also have the option to receive fixed implant supported dentures, both of which work just like your natural teeth.
Traditional dentures sit on top of the gums
which means the jaw bone does not receive any stimulation. Since the dentures
are not secured, they can slip and move which causes clicking sounds when
speaking or eating. Implant supported dentures are attached to a set of dental
implants fused to the jaw bone and can be placed in the upper or lower jaw.
They do not require the use of adhesives and provide the wearer with a more
secure fit compared with traditional appliances
These are designed with a ball and
socket mechanism which allows for an open palate denture placement. Providing a
very secure fit, these dentures are connected to the dental implants with a
ball and socket design. Patients with these types of dentures can eat and speak
clearly, and enjoy the benefit of dentures that function just like real teeth.
