Experience the Best of Both Worlds with Implant-Supported Dentures from Lovejoy Dentistry

Dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for a long time, but they’re not necessarily the best option. They can slip, causing embarrassment and discomfort. Over time, your traditional denture will become ill-fitting, as your jaw bone deteriorates. With implant-supported dentures, you get the strength, stability, and security of dental implants for your denture.

What are implant-supported dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are still removable, just like traditional dentures. The difference is that we place between two and five dental implants along your jaw, and your denture is modified to clasp onto the dental implants. Bar-retained implant-supported dentures clasp onto a metal bar that follows your arch, while ball-retained dentures grasp onto dental implants with ball-shaped ends that snap into sockets along the denture.

Why implant-supported dentures?

With implant-supported dentures, you gain the ability to speak and eat freely once again without the fear that your denture is going to come loose. Also, you gain the security of knowing that dental implants are protecting your jaw health, keeping the bone from deteriorating. For the best of both dentures and dental implants, you can’t beat implant-supported dentures.
