Permanent Dentures vs Traditional

Traditional dentures do not interact with the jaw bone and can cause deterioration over time. Since they do not have a solid foundation, problems such as shifting often occur which can make it difficult to eat or speak clearly. Other problems such as a loose fit and embarrassing clicking sounds are also common. Implant supported dentures solve these issues by utilizing dental implants for support. By attaching the denture to a set of implants located in the jaw bone, the risk of deterioration or slippage is virtually nonexistent. 

Differences Between Implants and Dentures

How Implant Supported Dentures Are Placed

Implant Supported Dentures

Traditional dentures can lead to both cosmetic and health issues when used for an extended period. Luckily, patients can visit Dr. Randolph Moore for dentures supported by dental implants in Buford, GA. This type of denture utilizes dental implants to eliminate problems such as slippage and bone deterioration while also maximizing comfort and functionality.

While they can be placed in both the upper and lower jaw, implant supported dentures are most often placed in the lower jaw where the need for stability is greatest. They can also be snapped in and out of place for easy maintenance or during sleep.

There are two main types of implant supported dentures:

Bar-Retained Dentures

Implant Supported Dentures in Buford, GAThis method involves a thin metal bar that is constructed to match the curve of your jaw. Once the implants are in place, the bar is attached so that it rests just above the gum line. Then the denture is attached to the bar with clips.


Ball-Retained Dentures


Implant Supported Dentures in Buford, GAThis method involves using the ball and socket method for stability. In most cases, a set of ball like attachments are placed at the top of the implants which correspond with sockets found on the bottom of the denture. Using this method, the denture can be snapped in and out of place but will not come loose on its own.

  

 

Dentures can be a more permanent tooth replacement option when stabilized by dental implants. To learn more about dentures supported by dental implants in Buford, GA, contact Dr. Moore and schedule your consultation today!
