Implant Supported Dentures Improve Your Lifestyle!
To ensure a secure fit and reduce the risk of complications associated with traditional dentures, implant supported dentures are attached to a set of advanced dental implants. These can be removed for cleaning but patients also have the option to receive fixed implant supported dentures, both of which function just like your healthy natural teeth.
Secure Fit. Enhanced Comfort.
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 dentures are attached to three or more dental implants and secured with metal bars that run between each implant. This creates a very strong foundation for the denture and a more secure fit than traditional dentures attached with adhesives. Patients with bar retained dentures enjoy more comfort and no looseness associated with traditional removable dentures.
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.
