Tooth replacement options have come a long way in recent years and for most patients, dental implants are the top choice over partial dentures and fixed bridges today. Dental implant procedures are favored because they do not elicit the complications that others can – in fact dental implants work to solve the problems and concerns that older appliances can cause.

A dental implant will not damage existing teeth in the way bridges can. Bridges work to fill in gaps, but the teeth they rely on for their anchoring require some reshaping and loss of enamel. Dental implants also prevent bone loss because, unlike dentures and bridges which sit on the gums, a dental implant works with the bone, keeping it as strong as a natural tooth root would. The titanium material from which implants are made is also resistant to decay and nonirritating to the body.

A dental implant looks most authentic, blending in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. Patients with dental implants smile without embarrassment and are able to bite into food and speak freely without the fear of slips or noise, which are common complaints among patients who wear dentures. With proper care, such as regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings and checkups, your dental implant will last for many years!

Implant Supported Dentures Keep Your Dentures Secure and In Place

Permanent Dentures Improve Your Lifestyle. 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.

Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures Include:

  • Increased stability
  • Ability to eat and speak with confidence
  • No more discomfort
  • Secure fit
  • No embarrassing clicking sounds
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 also be used in the upper jaw as well.

Ball-Retained Dentures

Ball-retained dentures, also called stud-attached dentures, function with a ball and socket mechanism. The denture base has several sockets that line up with balls placed on dental implants in the jawbone. The balls and sockets fit together for an extremely secure fit, allowing for an open palate denture. Ball and socket attachment, is even less likely to slip or move, restoring the patient’s ability to eat and speak regularly.
