Denture Support Implants
Implants that Support Removable Dentures
Implants can even make removable dentures more comfortable, effective and healthier to wear. Traditional dentures rest on the gums and put pressure on the underlying bone. This accelerates bone loss so that the jaw shrinks and the dentures slip, particularly on the bottom. But today dentists can attach a removable denture onto implants, transferring that pressure into the bone structure rather than the bone surface. This prevents the dentures from slipping while you eat and speak, and preserves the bone directly beneath them.
All Teeth – Removable
If you have lost all of your teeth in one or both jaws and require a removable prosthesis that remains in place more firmly than a conventional removable prosthesis, the overdenture connected to two or more implants is the answer when the prerequisites are met.
An overdenture involves installing two or more dental implants that will be used as a secure foundation to attach the prosthesis.
For the overdenture, either ball abutments or a small bar between the abutments are used. The prosthesis is fitted with corresponding devices underneath.
The overdenture is now in place. It looks and functions like normal teeth. You can now eat whatever you like and laugh without having to worry about the prosthesis falling out.
