PERMANENT DENTURES WILL IMPROVE YOUR LIFE!
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.
HOW ARE THEY PLACED?
DENTAL FIXED BRIDGES ARE MORE SECURE THAN TRADITIONAL DENTURES
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 denture is most often used in the lower jaw where removable dentures are less stable, but can be used in the upper jaw as well.
Dental fixed bridges are snapped into place on the implants during the dental implant procedure. 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 conveniently removed for regular maintenance, but are more stable than regular dentures. You can opt for fixed implant supported dentures, which function as permanent teeth.
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 because it eliminates the rubbing, loosening, and discomfort associated with traditional removable dentures.
