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:
This 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.
This 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.
