Implant supported dentures are snapped into place on top of dental implants. This provides a secure fit and hold, eliminating looseness or slipping without the need for paste or adhesives. Implant supported dentures are designed so that they can be removed for regular cleaning, or you can opt for fixed implant supported dentures, which function as permanent teeth.
Many of the disadvantages of dentures are well known and documented. Dentures are notorious for discomfort, looseness, and making eating and speaking difficult. Another important and perhaps lesser known disadvantage of dentures is bone deterioration. The jaw bone tends to deteriorate when there are few or no teeth remaining. When this happens, dentures can become even more difficult to keep secure since there is less of a surface to adhere to. Dr. Duane Robert offers implant dentures in Blackshear, GA, which have the potential to overcome all of these disadvantages and provide you with a more natural and comfortable bite.
Implant dentures are more stable, more comfortable, and easier to eat and speak with. They do not require adhesives or paste. Most importantly, implant dentures promote bone retention and help you keep a healthy and confident smile.
There are two ways implant dentures are attached. They can be either bar-retained or ball-retained. Both types begin with Dr. Robert fusing titanium implants to the jaw bone. This is a very simple and minimally invasive procedure. With bar-retained implant dentures, metal bars run from implant to implant on top of the gums. Dentures are then clipped to these bars. The dentures can be removed for cleaning, but avoid the looseness and discomfort of traditional dentures. Ball-retained dentures snap directly onto the implants for an even more secure and natural fit. In either case, the titanium implants serve not only to secure the dentures but also to promote bone retention. Both options provide you with more comfort and confidence.
